I have had this shot in my minds eye for ages. I just needed the time and place. Curses to you, but seriously I am envious of this photo. Nice one. Ralph.

Really like this, nothing arty about it, just a darn good eye for a darn good shot.

Would like to see a bit more sky on this though, would give a sense of shooting at something rather then just the edge of the frame, maybe change this to portrait and add a bit more to the top, and even add the blast from the shotgun? Just a suggestion, hope you don't mind.

Thanks Stewart, yep I would have like more sky at the top but that's all I had.... I thought about cloning but didn't think it would look right, and my timings not up to getting the blast! Grin

Really effective Jon, but as Stew said a little more space to shoot into plus a muting of the burnt bright bits, with your CS skills this is easy.
Love it though and a superb silhouette

Smile cracking silhouette image and so different. Just love the way that the dogs attention is drawn to whatever the shooter is aiming at. Brilliant. Wink

agree about more space at the top and also with Richard about muting of the burn bright bits but a good idea

For some reason I haven't seen your work for a while Jon, hope you're well.

Very artistic indeed and beautifully done.
