German Shepherd Dogs (aka Alsatians) NO OTHER DOGS

This challenge closed almost 5 years ago.

The Challenge

So I generally say “it’s a dog” and don’t differentiate much beyond that. However I just spent some time with my friend and her dogs who I missed a lot… one of those was a sweet affectionate German Shepherd dog.

What we want:

  1. A german Shepherd dog
  2. No other dog
  3. Predominantly brown, black or even white, all ok but MUST be a GSD. (Alsatian is another name)
  4. Long hair, short hair, adult or puppy, does not matter but MUST be a GSD.

What we do not want:

  1. Any other dog

WORK THAT DOES NOT LOOK LIKE A PHOTOGRAPH WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED, even if it originally started as a photograph!!


  1. as usual, please, no insects, arachnids or butterflies – thank you!
  2. also, nothing that requires a safe filter, nothing that you wouldn’t show to your grandma or to a 5-year-old (I shouldn’t have to say this for this subject, but we had some surprises…)
  3. no writing on the images, this is still a photography challenge group, keep images with added writing on them out of this, thank you (unless, of course, the writing is part of the subject)

Judging / Voting Criteria

Please vote for your favourite(s) that fit the theme, as many as they are. Every vote counts!

Rewards & Prizes

  1. Bragging rights
  2. Banners for top ten photos

  4. Top ten will be invited to participate in next month’s Avatar challenge

Additional Information

  1. Please remember this is the photography challenge group :-)
