I went down to the Lincoln Park Zoo on Sunday and spent some time in the Bird House. I settled on a shot of a Spotted Dikkop. Then, last night I grabbed our faithful and beloved Wheaten Terrier, Biscuit, for a photo session. This is a pretty straight forward composite of two photos. I am relatively happy with the processing job, but now wish the poses were a bit more interesting (e.g., the bird spreading it's wings, Biscuit with her mouth open, etc.)

This is just perfect the way it is. The lighting matches so well, the poses even match up.

I like the blending aside from the head appearing a bit small. It's probably the correct size for the bird but with it being a dog head it just looks this way

Nicely blended dird, and beautiful colour coordination throughout.

Nice light and colors. I particularly like that the light isn't a tipoff that the creature is a composite. Well done.

The scale on this is precious, it's oddly whimsical. Decent job on matching the lighting too :-)

WAY too cute!!

Oh my word!

I'd have been tempted to make the head larger, but... THIS is perfect.

So charming.
