thank you for your comments, I think this entry may have scored better if i had played with the coler a little more, as Ja-9 suggested toning down the bluish cast

cool...I love this technique. Not sure how the rest of the DPC crowd feels but I am glad you dared to try it here.

I rarely like distressed borders like this, but in this case it works perfectly. The photo is well composed and the lines of the two animals keep my eye circling the frame and never let me leave it.

OK, I'm going through the Free Study submissions, purposefully finding those images I think are shot with a less conventional eye - this is one of those images! Thanks for offering something that isn't just DPC friendly eye-candy (though of course there's nothing wrong with eye-candy). I'll be picking one of these images for the Mu (most underrated) award:

Positives: Very unusual composition - I really like it! Everything hangs together here - the strange border-like viewfinder, the artefacts, to poor colour reproduction, the blur, the old looking horse and the headless dog. Most definitely more than the sum of its parts.

Critical stuff: Nothing really - it is what it is; any change would mean that it wouldn't be!

Overall: Quirky and deceptively well done.

this has an old time feel to it...the blueish cast doesn't help the picture although
