NICE capture! I reckon that the dog has another .5 seconds of independence.

I've always gotten such a kick out of this one - great capture. :)

Ha! The two of them are in such perfect opposition, as if neither of them is remotely aware the other one's going the other way.

Great capture and good for a laugh. Captures the essence of "dog."

Ahh the illusion of intelligence in those who have control. Clearly bespoken by the cigarette... A clear indicator of a weak mind willing to be enslaved by advertising and addiction.

Super pic! I like the lack of footprints where the guy is coming from too!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/15/2005 11:14:08 AM
nice one, well seen!

08/15/2005 07:21:02 AM

no cloning, dodge on the dog's face a
little.
here's the original if anyone is interested?

Well done, Les. You keep getting better and better.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/15/2005 04:55:22 AM
What an eye.
Candid, non-studio/staged shot such as this always rank higher IMO.
Congrats btw

Well done on your top ten finish
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/15/2005 02:38:42 AM
You nailed "delusion" alright, this is excellent. Perfectly timed shooting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/15/2005 02:36:07 AM
Really glad to see this low-key image do so well, Leslie!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/15/2005 12:59:17 AM
The illusion of delusion here is great. Which one is deluded, one might ask. Is it the man or the dog? Or is it the fag hanging out of his mouth?
Lesley, you're the bomb. Again.

What a nice shot. Adding to favorites. Not so much for illusions, but a great photograph.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/13/2005 08:29:14 PM
Illusion that the guy is walking one way and the dog is walking the other? Kind of looks like the guy is walking one way, and the dog's being naughty. lol I like the background, nothing distracting there. Where are the footprints? Is that the illusion? Doesn't quite look right without footprints. Lighting is very good. I don't mind the shadows at all. Focus and clarity are great as well. Cute puppy. ~Heather~

08/13/2005 06:42:35 PM
What a great candid(?) shot...I love the neutral background and the mid-stride poses of the dog and owner! Great contrast, composition and originality! Well done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/13/2005 06:25:13 PM
i love this shot. the simplicity, tone, composition, bumping up!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/13/2005 03:24:36 PM
it works
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/13/2005 08:47:31 AM
High quality image. I like the toning and the indistinct background. Good job of cloning out the footprints and not blowing out the highlights on the pants. This is thinking "out of the box." Very well done. High score given.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/13/2005 07:52:53 AM
'8' - Good concept.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/12/2005 05:30:36 PM
this picture is great! it's such a wonderful candid in every way. could this be BradP? well, I think it could be, even if it's not.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/12/2005 03:31:35 AM
Delusion, sure...but illusion? 4
08/11/2005 01:46:48 PM
Great composition. The plainness of the background really works well to set off the main subject(s).
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/11/2005 05:56:10 AM
Not exactly illusion but a really nice shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/11/2005 12:22:07 AM
Nice composition. I like the opposition and the contrasting levels. Great overall shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/10/2005 10:26:48 PM
Nice shot Yanik ... This shot stands out as the best in the challenge on many levels. I love your use of neg space . The duo tone works perfectly for the shot.
hope this does well , Coley

08/10/2005 07:05:49 PM
Too funny!! A very nice clean shot. Should score high!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/10/2005 05:44:13 PM
this is a great fun capture, and the chose of sepia is spot on here.
Great shot
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/10/2005 04:56:52 PM
Kind of odd. Do like the way the sand makes a clean backdrop all the way through the scene. The duotoning is perfect. Nice tonal range too. Beautiful quirky and slightly surreal.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/10/2005 11:36:39 AM
Very nice photo. I love the composition and I think B & W is a wise choice. Bumping up.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/10/2005 06:36:27 AM
i guess it wasn't easy to do this shot. it's pretty cool and crisp
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great image and suits b/w love the sharpness and intrigue.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/09/2005 08:01:52 PM

  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/09/2005 08:30:20 AM
It takes a second to figure this one out. Cool photo
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/09/2005 04:59:28 AM
AS a photo it's very goog, but the wanted effect is abit "light"
08/09/2005 04:09:25 AM
This is priceless.
The juxtaposition of these two is visual trickery.
Nice! Gotta be top 3!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/09/2005 01:54:37 AM
Great shot. Even like the square crop which often doesn't work that well. Ya got decent lighting on the dog. Love the way the muscles in his shoulders are accentuated. However, I'm not sure how it fit's the challenge as I saw it...

Without doubt the best in the challenge. A top quality classic.

08/08/2005 05:44:20 PM
Lucky capture or posed?!
Very good, meets the challenge nicely, quite subtle.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/08/2005 05:40:39 PM
Very good movement implied by the leading foot/paw in the air. This balances it beautifully too. Nice tones and good idea on the desat. I hope this ribbons!

I like this in the monocromatic color. Definatly has that illusion effect, which way is the other walking.

08/08/2005 07:30:31 AM
Great shot. Don't know how well it will do in this challenge but I like it alot.
