I always check out the dogs in parking lots. Even using the polarizer there are always reflections; the challenge is to see some virtue in them. Ongoing... This was a nice reddish tan pitbull, though you can't really tell that from this photo, though in other shots the breed is evident.
Slight crop, invert, convert to BW, play with contrast/brightness, USM. (Irfanview).

Post: Very cool comments, which makes this so much fun. Yes, compositionally I think the bright reflections at the bottom are somewhat distracting, but I could not crop them without losing some dog. Anyone notice the bit of second dog in back seat? And CC, windows were partly open, but you can't see them.

Post post: gotta bake some OOBIE dog treats for next time I see these guys!

Congrats on the OOBIE. I like the double-exposure-lookalike effect in this pic. Very nice!

btw: you can see the window is open in the upper left corner of the pic.

This one is cool. So many things to look at. Makes you wonder what is going on outside the car. Of course on the flip side, I'm really hoping that it was not a hot day because the window is up! Bad for doggies :(

The reflection in the window is very distracting.

At the first moment i thought: "what is this"?
After looking some minutes I can say: yes! that's a very interesting idea in this challenge. Like the processing very much!
