By the way, the dog would just sit there like that and wait forever, I think. The man had a ball in his hand. He'd sit there. The dog would sit there. Then he'd throw the ball and the dog would go off like a rocket. He'd bring the ball back, the man would take it, then they'd both sit there again for a bit. It was a joy to watch.

Another wonderfully 'Melethial' shot, rich in colour, shape and texture, as an almost rich operatic backdrop to the foreground players, a middle aged man and his small scruffy dog.

But the players are needed to bring the whole scene to life, and bring human element and interest into the wider picture, to bring identifiable almost 'mundane' normality to the richness of the colours and items in the shop windows.

There are only two characters here, one man , one dog, forming an 'odd couple' neither making eye contact with the other - yet clearly together, the dog peering expectantly but patiently at his master waiting for him to make a move of some sort, while his master peers into space, lost in thought . .

All this is perfectly rounded off with a quirky PoV.

This really could only be ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' melethia's work . . and it is a fine example of it.

Outstanding. Has a Nordic feel to it. Makes me think of Ibsen and Ingmar Bergman. Maybe a faint hint of Magritte.

Great shot with the colors, clarity, and character interest. His face is nicely highlighted to set the mood for the rest.

Superb shot. Simple composition really makes this one work. Terrific lighting and composition.

There definitely seems to be some unspoken communication going on between those two. An excellent dynamic going on. Very nice!

there is something i like a lot about this picture, not sure exactly what tho. has a nice feel to it. beautiful light and colours definitely, the composition is great as well, may be the little doggie looking up to his owner and the dynamic between the two. i don't know, but i do like this a lot.

The profiles are perfect! This is just me, but I might try dodging the man and his bench to get a tiny bit more definition. I'd also try it in b&w although the colors here are very pleasing. Great work!
