1st Place Winner

1st Place:

"More wood for the camp fire Mum"

Judges' comments:
"The winner ... is a very well composed photo. Black dogs are difficult subjects but in this scene the dog is clearly defined and the water splashing gives a definite indication of the movement along the beach. An enjoyable photo to look at, giving us the sense that we were there collecting that wood as well."

2nd Place Winner

2nd Place:

"Wow Dad, that travel guide was right - Newfie Paradise"

Judges' comments:
"This is a beautiful photo - clear, colourful, well balanced with definition and the reflections in the water the finishing touch. Paradise - not just for Newfies."

3rd Place Winner

3rd Place:

"Newfie Heaven - Sand, Sea and Seagulls"

Judges' comments:
"We loved the silhouette of the black dog against the backdrop of the bright sun reflecting off the water. It gave a sense of calm and peace of wandering along the beach just before the Newfie explodes into action to chase the birds. A very nice photo."

"This is the life"

Judges' comments:
"What better than to relax at the waters edge after all that chasing, leaping and catching the waves. A lovely photo - nicely defined with good colours and showing the essence of a dog enjoying a day in the sun at the beach."

Judges' comments:
"A great fun photo and how many dentures are washed away. This dog the centre of the photo clearly defined and enjoyment personified. Well done."
