I love the inquisitive look! Great facial expression and the cutest little pink nose. The plain, simple background really helps this little guy pop, and the lighting is perfect! Excellent photo!

Judges Comments:

This gerbil reminds me of "The Birth of Venus" with his sort of accidentally on purpose caught being cute thing going on. While this does not seem like it was posed, the spontaneity adds to the charm.

Judges Comments:

Very interesting photo. What a beautiful gerbil! The background goes great with him and really frames him while accentuating his gorgeous color. The focus of the lens is a little off, I'd like to see it less on the material and more on the gerbil.

Judges Comments:

Aw, adorable pose! The color of the background really compliments the gerbil well. The folds are a little distracting, and the cropping is a little too close to the gerbil. Overall, cute photo!

Judges Comments:

I love when they do the search and sniff pose! This gerbil has a great look and goes well with his background. The imperfections of the fabric, and even the edge of the table peeking out actually make for some great contrast and visuals. However, I don't like the poop. It's hard to catch their good poses and sweep off poop at the same time, but maybe a poop scooping partner could have helped you out.
