love it! he looks so serious here. these are such cool creatures. it's a shame they're so seriously threatened in the wild.. it also shocks me that so few people even know what this is; or when i say a dhole people look at me like i'm making up animals. but aside from all that, this is a wonderful shot. the location of the dhole compared to the overall photo and amount of background image involved is great. it's much better more to one side than in the center; for this image at least as that's definitely not always the case. the colors and lighting are also really nice. it seems like everything aligned perfectly for this shot.

This animal looks just like my dog Blaze (he's a Shiba Inu).
I swear they could be cousins!  LOL  :D (Big Grin)

A splendid photo that seems to capture the thoughts of the Dhole, as if he is also contemplating why we observe him. The Australian Dingo (wild dog) MIGHT have bee descended from the a common ancestor to the Dhole, because I think see a similarity of colouring and body shape between the two.

So adorable. I've recently noticed that I'm becoming quite addicted to these beautiful wild dogs. I want to just grab one and cuddle it until the end of time..
I don't see that happening any time soon though.

I can wish though. cx

This picture is gorgeous. It's colors are so beautiful. Thank you for sharing it! c:

He's too adorable for his own good. Though the way he's looking at you makes me wonder what kind of plot he is thinking in his handsome head. ^_^

Hi picturbypali

Now then

This is a new specie for me new heard of them the look great a cross between a fox and a wolf.


i have heard that you rate the picture with vision, Originality,Technique and Impact here on DA so i will do the same

vision: the vison you seem to have is simple you dont want the viewer to think of his/her own you want to show of the animal and try to create a natural surrounding that you only focus on the animal and it´s pose. i know this looks simple but it´s not, having said that creating some mystery in your work in my mind would be a good thing and that would elevate your work to a higher level. i give you 3/5

Originality: i´m sry to say that their not much Originality with this picture it´s a wild dog sitting and looking at you, now that i have said that it´s very very hard to create a original art with a photo of an animal. in a Zoo,I still think it´s good that you shown something unusual like a Dhole so i give you 2/5

Technique: You take clean pictures good light and colour, good DOF and the focus perfect, and you use the rule of third in a good way i have nothing to say that you can do better. well done i give you 5/5

Impact: the Dhole is looking strait at you i like when photographers have contact like that with the animal, you can almost see how the intelligent dog seems to wonder how to get to you or how to make you give him a treat. the view is drawn to the subject and catches you very well... i give you 4/5

With a total of 14/20.. Well done

Cheers Peter

He's still young to jump and try to catch you but don't trust him, Pali XD
He's looking at you thinking "One day, when I'll grow up, I'll go for you" XD
Great shot as always :D
