This shot of Murphy is just way too funny, Robert - well captured! Many congratulations on your very deserved First Place win with it! Phil and have had a look at your website of photo's of Murphy - they are REALLY great images! We used to own a Golden Labrador Retriever named Amber, and he looked very much like your Murphy! He was a great friend to us both, and to our kids at the time... Mind you, he got up to any amount of mischief too - as you no doubt find with Murphy at times!! Anyway, great image, Robert! ;~) #782901

Nancy Grace Chen September 15, 2004

Robert, I loved this photo, it made me laugh out loud. I can appreciate a shot like this very much. I photograph just canine's for a living and know the feeling one can get for a fantastic shot like this. I looked at your site and it is wonderful. How great is it to take underwater shots of a retriever?! I also appreciate your other work and your comparisons of the three Nikons. Keep shooting and CONGRATS! -Dawn Norris #784540
