What a great way to show the majesty of a Great Dane, with him measuring up to those tall buildings. He was a lovely dog and I'm sure he will never really leave you.

Did you adopt any other dogs after he passed?

"No longer by my side, but
with me, nevertheless, to the end.
There are creatures of impeccable character on this earth, more noble than us."

Probably the best quote about a beloved pet. He is indeed a nobleman. They say that even once they've gone to the other realm, they are always around. We can't see them, but we can certainly sense their energy. I forgot how much I loved this image. Thanks for reposting it.

Nwuaah! He's lovely...
Now I miss my parent's GD - he's a gorgeous 5 months old miscoloured one ^^

(And, photo talk wise, it's a brilliant shot - I love the angle and the clear and simply symbolics.)

simply one of the best portraits on this site.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Oh this tells me how you feel about your dog. Makes me afraid to even think about doing a dog portrayal (as opposed to dogshots). Non pareil.

Hi there,
Just found this image and love it - Would have been very proud to have taken this myself. This is also the first image that has been added to my favorites. Nice one

This is a masterful study with such high visual impact with cascading connations and multiple meanings.

Wow, I hadn't seen this one before. Goes well with that "dog eats dog world" saying.

Stupendous image! New favorite!

Excellent! I love how the distance between the dog and the buildings makes the dog look giant!

Unbelievable work Zeus!

When did this fall out of my favorites!? The one with the gull reminded me of it and low and behold I'm back to add it again.

I loved this shot when I first saw it. I thought I had commented on it with a rambling story about a Great Dane I had like this but I guess I edited myself and never made the post. :D

Here is the comment in brief:
Love the perspecitve, i.e, the dog is the same height as the buildings
Love the pose, could never get one of my three Aussies to pose like this in a million years
Love the dog, I had a dog like this (Leo, short for Leopold which was inspired by the Bugs Bunny cartoon) and he died in a stupid, tragic way.

Captivating, comical, yet serious too. Love the attitude in the Monster Dog!

This is a really dynamic photo, Zeus! I hadn't seen it before. I love the juxtaposition between dog and buildings--and I'm glad you didn't skew the buildings so they were straight. The tilt makes it delightfully surreal!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/18/2004 03:11:24 PM
Thanks for the kind comments, everyone.

> shutterfly: the shot just offered itself. It wasn't taken for a challenge.
> John: yes, although the juxtaposition was entirely unpremeditated, I was lucky enough to stumble into a 'perspective' conducive to it.
> timmi: about one in 'a hundred and twenty' considering the size of my Memory Stick®.

Awesome composition, was this taken too late for 'point of view' challenge?

very nice.

  Photographer found comment helpful.

Energy :) Lots of it... nice combination of raw nature and structured urbania in this shot.. nice 'complex' juxtaposition of those elements as well. GREAT SHOT :) +fav

Wow, this is one great shot. Did you get him to pose or was this "one in a million" kind of catch? The shape of the dog in contrast to the buildings is just perfect. He really stands out. Great b&w photo.

"That's a HUGE bitch!"---(Duece Bigalow)

Great shot Zues. Even though its not a female, that quote was the first thing I thought! (:
