Challenge: Pieces of the Human Form (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: aminals
Camera: Canon EOS-40D
Lens: Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro

Just an incidental shot from the animal shelter. The dog is a Newfoundland and she is very old, confused, maybe partly blind... but this was a good day for her - she was going to a foster home. The vignette felt right because the poor old girl is in such a fog. The hands model is a kind person who donates tons of his time to the animals and has an excellent rapport with them.

Awww - I'm so glad to hear that someone will take her in, even tho she is old. The older ones don't often get that chance. I think I'd actually like to see this without the vignette, although it does put more focus on the man's hands. Great story - hope she finds a home!

I'm so happy to hear she was going to a foster home! (as opposed to what I was thinking)

This is a nice shot but I do think the vignette ruins your shot.

this image gives me the feeling that something just isn't right :-( makes me wonder what's about to happen to this dog? the title tells me it's something being done out of kindness and love for the animal; the hand on the leash makes me think these two are old frineds - IMO you've done an excellent job with this and you've evoked alot of emotion
