    Thanks for the comments and votes! I had an awful time trying to shoot this with a camera with a stationary LCD display. I wanted to re-shoot on the last day of the entry period, but the rains came.

Enjoyed playing with NIK Color Effects Pro, though the results were not as impressive as I would have liked!

    This one is really sad. Hope you get a new pal soon.

    I wonder, if it would look more natural without that filter.

    the HDR spoils the picture for me. there is no "sharpness of edges "

    I know how hard it is to lose an old friend, a part of the family. It has been over ten years since I lost Bubba, and I still think of him all the time.

The story behind the picture touched me, but it needs something, some punch. Maybe cropped closer, more contrast, maybe B/W, I'm not exactly sure but it just needs a little something to make it really stand out. I also think it should be a little sharper, after reducing the image to size for the challenge it's always a good idea to sharpen it.

    Interesting choice of subject, and I really like the composition.

Not sure whether it needs the filter - I like the colour and tone it has given the picture, but dislike the softness. I would have thought this would have been a good enough image on its own as you've got a strong narrative and an unusual subject.

    Like you processing and composition, everything looks soft though. Would have been nice with something in sharp focus.

    I like the subject a lot; but the photo is is rather blurry.

    I honestly don't see how a three-exposure HDR combination did anything for this image. Grunge filter or not, it's not sharp either.

    Sad Story - makes it fit the theme.
Looks a little bit tilt for me. In my top ten.

    A good interpretation of the "Abandoned" theme, which will strike a chord with pet owners.
