Dog Park 4

For the final shot in the series, it seemed that one of the paths should be included. (Note: as the result of Anna's original comment, I went back and cropped out much of the sky in yesterday's photograph. Once again, Am3 helps us to create better photographs.)

Judy from Brooksville, Florida, United States

This series has been interesting ... thank you for sharing the differing views with us. I love the feeling of cresting the hillside in this one, in all that yellow and bits of Queen Anne's Lace.

@Judy: Thanks, Judy.

Vitor Martins from Lisboa, Portugal

Nice composition. I like the golden tone.

Lorraine from Gatineau, Canada

Sweet, sweet park...

@Lorraine: It is, indeed.

Anna.C from LA ROCHELLE, France

it was just my advice Jack, but I am happy you find it as an interesting suggestion ! I like this composition which includes the path and the little house.

26 Jul 2009 12:34pm

@Anna.C: I wish that more people would make suggestions. I find that about 75% would improve the photograph.

Great dog park photos:)

@cindy brown: Thanks.

Don from spokane, United States

A fine composition that is appealing in the way the path curves toward the building. Seems to bid us to come! Nice one.

26 Jul 2009 3:01pm

@Don: And that's the top of the hill.

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

Love those little flowers.

Tracy from La Selva Beach, United States

Gorgeous color! I love the path leading us in...

26 Jul 2009 4:14pm

@Tracy: Just to the right of this path (about 5 yds.) is another path that takes us through the great trees which have appeared earlier.

Vanilla Wine from United States

your framing is just perfect

26 Jul 2009 4:27pm

@Vanilla Wine: Thank you.

khadi from New Delhi, India

The path is perfect -- really catches the eye and leads one to the dog house. Very well composed.

26 Jul 2009 6:46pm

@khadi: Thank you.

Veronique from Sarrouilles, France

yes, very nice composition

Michael Rawluk from Williams Lake, BC, Canada

Very nicely put together. The mass of yellow in the green grass makes a nice muted colour.

What a great series of photos Jack. This one is my favorite of the four!! Great shot (shots). : )

B. Thomas from Arlington, Texas, United States

Hi Jack, nice series. FYI - a singer named Jim Salestrom has a nice little song called "Queen Anne's Lace" in his "Music of the Mountains" CD. It might be on i-Tunes. I thought of it when I saw your shots.

27 Jul 2009 3:12am

@B. Thomas: Thanks, Barb.

marc battault from clermont ferrand, France

beautiful suite, jack!

Barbara from Florida, United States

I love this place and your images, the clarity and tone is excellent. I like how the path leads you and also balances the image with the barn.
But truthfully, I miss those beautiful pink flowers against the hillside.
I've enjoyed this series, Jack.

Suddenly this place has started looking better and better. I love how the curve of the trees line is covering the grounds.
