I received my copy of "Underwater Dogs" on Tuesday and I without a doubt think this is the best dog photography book I have ever seen and I actually own quite a few as I am a huge dog lover. The pictures in this book are unlike anything I have ever seen up until a few months ago when I, like thousands of other people, discovered Seth Casteel's website and his amazing underwater photos. Not only are the photos themselves so unique but the clarity of them are incredible and the colors just pop!! The expressions on these waterloving dogs are something out of a Dr. Suess book. Who knew dogs looked like this underwater? I will tell you who knew, Seth! And he captures these expressions with amazing skills and what is one heck of a good camera. These pictures are as professional as you can get and yet there is such a playfulness that it keeps it from being unlike any other dog portrait book. As for the actual book itself I was impressed at how well the book is made. A book of this quality could easily sell for 2 - 3 times this Amazon price. At $12 this book is a steal and I, for one, plan to "steal" about a dozen more copies to give as Christmas presents to my dogloving friends and family. The other thing I really like about this book is that it is a true coffee table book. Some coffee table books have way too much writing. Guests sitting on your couch dont' want to read a War and Peace novel. They want a book they can flip through and look at pictures. But as fun and entertaining as these pictures are I don't think anyone could just flip through this one. They will have to look at each and every page as every page offers an entirely different view of the underwater life of dogs.Read more ›

The idea is of taking underwater pix of dogs is revolutionary and the purchase is certainly worth it. Yet, my mistake, I hadn't realized that the book's dimensions do not allow any larger picture. Double-page images being cut right in the middle due to the binding, the pictures appear less beautiful than they could.

This book has some very funny and beautiful photographs of these dogs. It is one of those books that is not only good for the intended recipient, but also will entertain any guests one may have.

One issue I had with this book was the layout. Some photos are centered, which means that due to the binding the photos are essentially disfigured by the layout. You can't see the whole expression of the dog, despite the fact it was enlarged around two pages for the purpose of highlighting that photo. Other photos were off-center, or covered one page, which made it much more fitting for the format.

If they would change the centering so that photos were not cut off by the binding, or bind it differently, that would improve the quality of the printing and make all the photographs equally visible.

and the pics were fantastic - but for a photobook, the layout was not so good - on a few of the pics the focal point (the dog's face) was right in the crease when it was a 2 page pic - there had to be a better way to do it.

I assume dogs have ALWAYS looked like this when they are diving & playing in the water. Now, Seth Casteel has captured for us views that have never been seen before. After a 1-page introduction, each turn of a page shows a photo of a dog looking into water or diving under the surface pursuing a toy. Each dog is identified by name, breed, & age. One looks like a shark, one looks like a donkey, others look like alligators. Nearly all have their eyes wide open, the better to follow a ball or other toy. Some appear goofy (like the dog on the cover), some appear scary, all are intensely focused.

A word about the layout of the book: of the 90 pictures, only 10 have the binding crease touching a dog's face. I didn't feel this was bothersome.

I wondered what the dogs looked like when they were not under water. At the back are small b&w headshots taken when the dogs were sitting pretty for the camera on dry land.

I don't know whether I will look through this book over & over again. But my life is richer now that I have seen these photos.

I just received this book a few hours ago. I had seen a few of the pictures on CNN and my local news but having the entire book to view is incredible.

This proves that not all ideas have already been taken.

The photography is excellent. I cannot imagine the number of shots that had to be taken to get these images.

If you are looking for a great Christmas present, this is it.

I preordered this book well before the release date knowing that the photographer always was posting beautiful shots on his website and facebook page. When the book arrived on my doorstep I was anxious to see if it would live up to my expectations. I COULD NOT BELIEVE MY EYES. The images that are in this book are by far the best animal photography I have ever seen. They are real, inspiring, funny, adorable, & true to the spirit of each dog. I have never been moved as much as with these images, most made me laugh out loud, some brought tears to my eye - not in a bad way but because the photographers ability to allow you to connect with each image is so strong. This is a must have for any dog lover! I went back and purchased copies for all my family. An inspiration and feel good book that will have you amazed at the photographers talent and the dogs amazing love of the water!
