All In The Details Top 10 May 2022

Since our pets are such unique looking creatures, they will always have particular features that their owners love. We’re sure you’ve heard clients talk about their favourite bits of their pets before, the weird, quirky or cute parts that make them special.

For the All in the Details challenge, we wanted challengers to showcase these parts.

The results were incredible and this challenge is truly one of the best sets of images we've seen in all of the Unleashed Challenges to date.

Here, in no particular order, are our top 10. Congratulations to the photographers.

Andrea Fleury | Dogtography

Wow, this image has impact! It could easily be blown up giant size as an abstract art piece for the wall. Gorgeous colour and superb detail.

Diane Gollowitzer | Dogs in Focus Photography

What a joyful image! A springtime frolic in the daffodil fields. Great detail and lovely story-telling.

Jennifer Patterson 

Incredible detail in the feathers, a fascinating pose. Overall it's a stunning example of a detail shot perfect for this challenge brief.

Kelly Middlebrooks | Little White Dog Pet Photography

Lovely quirky shot with this dog's droopy tongue. It's so sharp and detailed and the softness of the dog's neck further enhances that detail.

Marika Moffitt | SoulDog Creative (Dirtie Dog Photography)

I don't think we'll be the only ones looking at this swirl of fur and seeing an owl in flight! Very well seen and beautifully captured.

Megan Thompson | Megan Thompson Photography

Gorgeous colour harmony, the backlight is lovely and really enhances the feathered fur on the dogs legs. 

Nicole Crystal | Pooch Pix

Gorgeous nose detail. Wonderful film like quality and subtle grain and a beautiful edit.

Nicole Hrustyk | Pawtraits by Nicole

There's so much to looks at in this fur detail and the way the light is refracting creating fur bokeh and really interesting colour separation takes this from a simple fur shot to a work of art.

Rebecca Kostka | Shy Wolf Photography

Who doesn't love a dog crossing paws?! This is a lovely moment and the use of colour in the leaves and grass, combined with a beautiful edit gave this it's top 10 placing.

This is a wonderfully detailed shot, the reflected eyelashes and dog, the structure of the eye and the beautiful edit.
