3rd place
King Kong by LynEve

trixxie17: Congrats on the 3rd place finish and also on having this selected as the image of the week for 03/10 - 03/17.

Vickid: Perfect submission for SNATM. The movie is quite unique, and I must admit, the ending is very sad. Your photo is incredible. The emotion captured here is mind boggling, one cannot but admire this amazing creature, excellent work. Favorite for me, Lyn.

4th place
Blue by JaiJoli

Vickid: Perfect timing, brings us much joy to view this magnificent creature, Blue is beautiful, and his loving character just shines right through to us.

regmar: This image conveys the whole "happy dog" thing quite well. I feel that maybe you pushed the contrast a bit far. Here's why: Back when I was in school in TV production (a thousand years ago) they always said that the technique should convey the message and not draw attention to itself. Any attention drawn to the methodology distracts from the message.

Now of course all this goes out the window when the technique IS the message - in which case put the pedal to the metal and distract away!

5th place
Francis by 0930_23

corngrowth: OFT, congratulations for your 5th place in the 'Animals' contest.
Well done!

Starglow: Cute!! Nice that it can point out directions for you.

trixxie17: A good one for all three things Tick!

corngrowth: OFT (Owd Fella Tick),
In the past, in the navy there was the profession of a signalman. In certain conditions the (visual) communication between ships was done by waving defined patterns with small flags in his hands.
Think that Francis has copied this 'trick', not by hands however but by its ears.

Your image has a triple function: a funny one (thanks for the 😁 ), a good entry for the current 'Annimal' contest (wish you Good Luck with it), and last but not least, a perfect entry for the SNATM theme.
Three for the price of one. Thanks for this 'bargain', 👍 !
