To be honest, a lucky shot shot.. HAd been out walking ( as always with Camera ) and teh long shadows being cast were awesome. Dropped the camera down to ground level and ran off circa 10 shots pointing straight at him. When I looked, this one just jumped out at me. Very little post processing, some saturation and contrast.

Yahy...! 2nd place, thanx to all who voted and especially those who commented, some really nice comments. Oh, and to whomever gave it 1 point, well you know the message!

Great angle, makes me dizzy lol...and though I knew it had to be a dog, at first glance it honestly made me think 'moose'...

Well utilized tilt to create and impact on the viewer… and silhouette.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2008 11:33:42 AM
Love the strong shadows. My only nitpick is you cropped the tip off the shadow of the ball.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2008 07:28:31 AM
well done. great shadows!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2008 07:25:13 AM
Not a dog person but I really like how this came out. Great silhouette, cool colors behind and the ball just puts it over the top. Very nice.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/10/2008 11:37:26 PM
lol, nice! I love how it looks like he is staring at the ball waiting for you pick it up and throw it, nicely done!

Great leading lines in the leg shadows. Sky is gorgeous. I love the vignette although I've seen people disqualified for it... not sure if it is just the exposure or if you added it (either way I like it). One of my favorites so far!

03/10/2008 10:09:55 AM
I like the angle that you captured. There is a lot of great shadows that you created, the dog is a good model.

nice silhouette and excellent use of shadows.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/06/2008 02:26:15 PM
Perhaps tilted to the right to "elongate" the shadows. It tricks the eye to continue the dark out of the shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/06/2008 10:09:22 AM
very good angle and shadows
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/06/2008 09:56:45 AM
Good picture i like the angle on the shot and how the sun is blocked out
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/06/2008 09:50:32 AM
I really like the silhouette and especially the shadows in this.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/05/2008 11:56:00 PM
Love the graphic lines in the shadows. Fun shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/05/2008 10:58:20 PM
This photo lacks "punch"
03/05/2008 03:57:47 PM
Wonderful, wonderful silhouette - those shadows coming towards us creating lovely line leading us in are great. And the angle actually gives one the impression of looking up as one lies on the ground or perhaps the viewpoint of a small kid, though the title contradicts that.

Perfect pet and nice point of view. 8

I love the colors, they're so vivid here. From the thumbnail, the dog looked like a lion. :).

03/05/2008 11:33:22 AM
I like the contrast of colors with the silhouette. And the nice undistrubed beach.
