Quite a mean looking beast, perhaps a good job its attention seems to be elsewhere! Loving the wide angle, might crack mine out this weekend.

Ha! I love this! the unseen owner wants to go to the left, the dog wants to go to the right, and the woman in the background is patiently waiting for one of them to give in. :)

Very cool shot! I love the low angle and the dynamic motion. The shadow in the forefront adds interesting tension.
