Award Shortlist   


By Jasper87  
In a reflective mood this morning so back to Burma, the Kuthodaw Pagoda in Mandalay, looking back towards the entrance. The title refers to the name of the dog in the HMV logo which this one reminds me of. The floor gave some excellent reflections and I 'snapped' quite a few people walking it, but this is the least cluttered and the dog had wandered off in most of the others.

Iso 200, 1/30sec, f11, handheld.

A beautifully observed and crafted composition with stunning light and glorious colour. The sitting cat makes me think "Is he checking for adorned feet?"

I didn't spot the dog for a moment, it adds a whole new aspect to the way the eye moves through the frame, because we can follow the dog's eyes.
But my main interest is the lady's care and sense of anticipation - it's in that right hand.

Spotted the dog immediately (from the title, of course). The dog looks lost without the gramophone horn.
Excellent work, Dave.
25 Mar 2013 9:04AM
Another fabulous take, Dave!
Such wonderful colours and reflections.
Where's the gramophone gone??!!
Have a good day.

Very well framed indeed, Dave with a wonderful reflection and the colours are what colour is for, amazing.

The dog adds just wee extra touch that you might only far in the Far East with such a subject.
And what a beautiful and colourful subject the Pagoda makes, the shiny tiled floor showing off excellent reflections.
Excellent exposure and detail, Dave, and of course I'd expect nothing less from youWinkWink.

The reflections are great and the dog looking at them adds quirky character. Lots of depth in the distance if a little cluttered there (the monk can stay!) but I'd say a great job done for such a busy tourist destination.
