would have been even better in B&W,i think can express more of the atmosphere,moment,feeling and all that :D

@Kheoh Yee Wei: Ya know, if I would have posted this in B&W, I would have gotten comments saying it would have looked better in color (see yesterday's post). "Atmosphere, moment, feeling and all that" are all very subjective measures. Maybe you can express why it would look better in B&W in terms of the visual elements and the unifiers??? I do appreciate constructive critisism; but, I'm not at all sure you are correct.

@Sean Bailey: Mike is the guy ready to step out into the light. We think the two dogs might be aliens! :0)

Rahul from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

I like how the contrast between the shadow and light feel in this shot today. With 'Mike' about to leave the shadow of the trees and emerge into brightness, nice one.

Ok Craig.... this is how I see it; in colour it does have a natural/casual carefee feel to it... a great walk, a feeling of serenity. In b/w it would have a feel of coldness and more so of the unknown. Shrug.. it's what you want to convey. With the absolute subjective nature of photography who the hell knows. I quite like the feel of this shot... it's not spectacular to your usual standards but it's still a great shot on the merit of what I think you're portraying. Did I go too far? Hope not... as I do love what you do...

@amy: Thanks Amy...no you didn't go too far. Good point about the subjective nature of photography. :0) I'm just of the belief that photography is more objective then subjective. But then I guess that is why there are so many books on the subject....

William from Sacramento, United States

makes me wonder what is mike doing?

@William: He is just taking the dogs on a walk.
