This is Molly, my son's guard dog for his wrecking yard. She is really friendly so I don't know what she'll do if someone breaks in at night.
The green thing is her kennel which used to be a truck. She has plenty of room, just likes to get into this little spot between things.

I'm looking at this on a different monitor, away from home, can't change anything before rollover, and it looks like I've overdone the colour processing. It looked better on my monitor.

This tugs. (Also a slight deja vu).

Nice layers, geometry. Poor pooch.

poor molly looks like she'd rather be the other side of that wire! I like the motion blur on the foliage which suggests an enduring patience

Molly not behind bars would be less busy and better. Nice colors and contrast.
