Dogs, used for towing logs on the coast, are an old form of technology.

Thank you very much for your comments. In choosing this subject, I was influenced by the fact I lived in a tiny northern fishing village for 17 years... no cars, no roads. Our heat was by necessity, wood and I carried 'dogs' in the bottom of my skiff back and forth across the harbour. Any stray logs floating or on the shore became fair game, and provided our warmth. The dogs were our technology... rather than cutting the logs up on a beach and packing the rounds home, I'd simply hammer a dog into the log, tie it off on the beach, and any other scavenger would know that log was already spoken for. We'd then go back on the high tide and tow our logs home
I'd like to add that I've just begun to take photos and enter them. Any comments and suggestions are gratefully accepted as I am just learning, and have very little technical knowledge. My pictures are sent in exactly as they come from the camera... don't know how to retouch yet!!! LOL !

Who says you can't teach and old dawg new tricks! Very good composition, colours, and depth of field. Nice work. Keep it up!

Very good colors and texture. I also like the composition. Some of the rope is overexposed, but it's still good. Grayce

Like the wet on the pavement or whatever around them. Adds something to the photo. Don't know what a dawg is but looks like they have to do with a boat and the water. I like the rust, it adds character to them dawgs. Good shot. Technically good quality shot. PTL Good photo from plain subject. Hard to do. But it is an 8

Topic relevance is a stretch, but this is definitely a good photo. There is good balance in color and composition. My only suggestion would be to play with the saturation a little more, it seems a tad bit flat.

Ok. So what are these things. I assume they have to do with ships. Score is lower when I do not know what the focal point is.

Very nice

I like the colors, and overall composition, but it seems a bit bright or blown out on some spots of the rope. karmat
