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.

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.
