One man and his dog - came second :)

I came second!

It was our camera club's annual portrait competition and I came second with this photo. It was nailbiting and exciting!

The winner got a score of 20/20 mine got 19 1/2 out of 20. He said if it'd been a border collie it would have won - poor Gavin!! (dog didn't suit rugged background, man etc)
