waiting, impatiently

Does this look dark? 
Well, it is. 
I took this a few months ago and I wasnt sure if I liked it or not. 
I decided to play with it a bit.
Turned it into a monochrome.
Added a touch of Picnik.com's Holga-ish effect to length the shadows.
I am still not sure I love it but .. here it is.

  1. It's an interesting picture. I found myself looking closer at all the different things in the photo from the shadows and the dog to the table cloth and eggs. Nice job.

  6. I like it
    I think the shadows create a moody feel
    and the dog's stance is perfect

  7. Look at how the dog's legs imitate the human's legs...or is it vice versa? Also, I didn't notice you had your own brand of eggs!

  8. He's rather walk than shop. Smart dog! ;)

  9. It really does show the feeling between the person and their dog. You see people who take them everywhere and the dog just follows, knowing that it is their job. I like the effects that you created giving it more of a story quality, if there is such a thing.

  12. Black & white imagery adds depth to a sometimes ordinary photograph. Or should I say "interest" to a photograph your are not sure or totally happy with. lol

    Sepia toning is used by photographers to create a warmer print tone. The term "sepia tone' refers to a photograph printed in brownscale, rather than grayscale. The resulting image is considered a monotone in shades of brown.

  13. I think this is one of those photos that will grow on you...it's good enough to hang...and I expect that it will be in your MOMA gallery in the future!

  14. Great contrast ...needed to be in blk and white..dark shadows, strong stance on men and dog vs. soft floral table cloth, round eggs, twirled sweets. To me it's just enough off balance to leave you wanting more.
