Q: Why are some of the contest photos obviously photoshopped?

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

We took this photo of our our dog, "Barney" in an effort to show our son he was waiting for his return.

Our son loved the photo and told us he put it over his bed, saying it gave him comfort and helped him sleep.

In the Did I Ever Tell You? photo essay.

Also in the story Heart Of Our Heroes.

    And this one is the best of all. There is just something about this picture that shouts. Beautiful K-9 not to mention to meaning behind it. Well done!

    I certainly do remember this photo in the NYIP International Photography contest that we both entered in 2007 ...It left a deep impression on my memory...I remember commenting... voting for it and hoping it would win a prize ...That was a tough contest with very few who were awarded prizes..out of over 7000 entries from around the world.

    My wife told me, our son Tim was having a hard time sleeping in Iraq. I didn't know why, but I grabbed my camera, an Army hat, a pair of boots (Tim had given to me) and our Springer Spaniel, Barney. With the help of our daughter Natalie, I shot this photo. I wanted the dog to be looking down the driveway for our son's return. When Tim finally came home from Iraq, he told me he had hit an IED with his vehicle. Although no one was hurt, he, as well as others were shook. He said he placed the photo of Barney above his bed and it helped him sleep at night.,

    There is no living being more loyal and loving than a dog.
    Barney sure is a great looking Springer.
    My thanks to your fine son and all who serve our great country.
