27/11/08 Following Simon and Valeria's judicious remark I have cloned out the sharp light on the foreground and indeed I think it looks better.
The title is an homage to Jim Jarmush's fantastic film : "Ghost dog, the way of the samurai", with the excellent Forest Whitaker.
I feel always sorry for these big dogs who live in towns, most of them do not get the exercise they need, there is a certain fashion around to have huge dogs, even huger cars... the owners either are more of the rich kind, or youths who want to impress with them. I do far too often see a sad look in their eyes. In Iceland , for example, dogs are not allowed in Reykjavik, you can own them but have to bring them outside town for a walk. I would agree to that, with an exception for the smaller ones, sorry if I tramp on somebody's paws:-). Taken last year during the pre-Christmas rush.

Very nice "spooky" image. I also prefer the second version without the lines, it disturbed the image . great work, you know i like photos like this :)))
hope you're fine. i'm not so much on PH the last time, will have to comment a lot now :))
Maybe i would love to retouche the line on the top left
it seems to sharp if your compare the softnes of this picture.
Just a détail. well done Michele
PS seems here you not shake your Z but your cam hahaha
much better for me Michele, this detail was a bit disturbing, well done. ;o)
the picture look more smooth now
a blur well captured
i agree with Simon, it was better to remove the strong lines on the left side
Good capture of the dog here, Michele. A real nice blur, but enough of the dog's head to ive the photo a bit of meaning, i.e we can see some of his face.
