Thank you!!! I’ll be sure to add those photography tips in 😜Oh man, this contest is actually getting good. I don't even care that I have zero chance of winning this thing. The pix being submitted simply rock.
☑ Golden Retriever?
Bonus points for...
☑ Action shot?
☑ Golden Retriever in water?
☑ Golden Retriever doing "golden retriever thing"?
☑ Active elements in frame (i.e., Golden Retriever, splashing water)?
☑ Cool reflective elements in water?
I had to copy/zoom the pic to notice that subject pooch has definitely already been involved in one-or-more splashdowns. The framing is spot on. The only "improvement" I could envision is purely a photography thing. Everything is in fairly sharp focus, and using a wider f-stop would have introduced some cool bokeh effects for background elements.
