Captivating and a little confusing.

What a doggy delight. Dark and amusing in equal measure. I can't take it seriously though - the dramatic leaf, the dominant silhouette - makes me want to laugh out loud. I hope that was the intent. An 8 nonetheless.

It's not the destination but what you see when you slide, an epic canine print worthy of a big red arse, don't sniff it. Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1153615.jpg

I love how my eyes meander between the light and dark. The trapped leaf adds nice detail to the overall opaqueness of the ice and the dog brings life to the image.

Probing the mind of the canine - so much to ponder - what could it all mean? Maybe all it really wants is a lick. Visually stimulating dichotomy.

Excellent word play.. and dog play too, of course.

Our inner pooch, who lurks in unexpected and pounceful places.

A wonderful made up word for the title. The tones seem perfect with every detail of the ice, right down to the light sparkles, perfectly captured and nicely contrasting with the silhouette of that darling looking dog.

What is the dog dreaming about? Or may be that's the dream of the frozen leaf, and it's about the dog?

a dog wonders about frozen leaves? well imagined.

Here's the thing of it: at the most "literary" level, we have darkness beneath and light above, we have a passage of some sort, we have the dog, we have to start thinking Cerberus, don't we? But that doesn't satisfy me, I think that's my intellect imposing order on something wholly other than that. I'm quite taken by the sparkles of light in the dark. The leaf speaks to the passage of things. The dog is the dog. I think that's enough.

Oh that title is deliciously awful! Love it for that. The picture is interesting, underdone and overdone at the same time. I love vignettes, don't know why. I think that it's maybe because a vignette puts me in mind of a daydream, where reality and fancy bleed into each other and can't be untangled 'till you sit up with a gasp and a start. In this case it's not even a real vignette, just an implied one. And I love implication better than the explicit. Dogs? Happy with dogs too. Salt of the earth, are dogs. Leaves? I have no objection to leaves; life and death, mortality, impermanence; all that figurative stuff. Put 'em all together and there you are: one happy & satisfied viewer. Slightly bewildered, tiny bit disoriented still, but gulping down a few quick breaths and happy to have been awakened. Thank you.

This is one of my favorites! I love the randomness of the composition and the dog's profile nails it.

Green leaves of summer turn red in the fall
To brown and to yellow they fade.
And then they have to die, trapped within
the circle time parade of changes.
