Help a Nubian Hound win!

Dear followers – I need your help choosing a photo please!

For the last two years, I have entered photographs of Tala for the Kennel Club ‘Dog Photographer of the Year Competition’. I figure it’s worth a try – although I don’t think a non ‘pure breed’ has ever won despite the competition claiming that all dog types are welcome to enter. I suppose this is to be expected in a competition run by a Kennel Club.  While many of the photographs are great, I’m always surprised at how others make it past the stringent judges – for example the Weimeraner behind a pint glass… I’m hoping that perhaps this year Tala can help break the mould of the familiar breeds such as Labradors, Great Danes, Rottweillers, whippets, border collies etc. always winning.

The 2013 winners here.

Two of my entries for last year below – ‘portrait’ and ‘man’s best friend’

This year I’ve headed out several times with my Canon camera and tried to get some pretty pictures of Tala for the portrait category using the beautiful Isle of Man scenery as the background.  Tala loves posing so I have ended up with far too many – I’m really struggling to choose between the following and would love your opinions. Please let me know in the comments section which photo your think I should use for Tala’s ‘portrait’ entry. I would really appreciate your help!

We’ve always struggled a bit with the ‘dog at work’ category – seeing as Nubian Hounds are obviously not bred with a purpose, hailing from the streets of Khartoum where they scrounge around, picking through rubbish bins and perhaps catching the odd rat. I was tempted to enter one of the above portrait entries, perhaps the one of her licking her lips, as Tala ‘at work’ either ‘seal seeking’ or ‘rabbit rummaging’ or perhaps we could go for the sillier option of ‘dog at work’ and use one of the two below…

I look forward to hearing your opinions. The competition closes on Monday at 5pm UK time! Apologies for the short notice…
