I say this challenge brought people to their knees! Good capture of the Kennel from a very low angle. Vanishing points are there.

Very well done. Obviously taken after the kennels were cleaned! This is an excellent example of how a low-angle shooting position can often add drama to a shot.

I agree with Tullio (Are you paying attention, Tullio?) that there is a definite vanishing point along with the converging lines.

I think you and I disagreed on the interpretation on a couple of other recent postings, so I wanted to make sure you knew I agreed this time! :lol::lol::lol:

I see...yes, the interpretation of this challenge can be a bit subjective, but that's OK. It.s a challenge within a challenge!

Thanks Cair I thought using a very low position would further bring out the vanishing point. My Sony R1 allows me to get down very low.
As to the clean kennels our building is some 70 ft long and this is the other section which at the moment is mainly used for storage.
cheers Geoff

When I first looked at this the thought came to mind, "Alcatraz". Someone had submitted an Alcatraz shot for this challenge and these kennels made me think Alcatraz for dogs...

Very nice piece of wokr that obviously meets the challenge. Love the low perspective.

Aloha

Hi Selvin I am sure our spoilt pooches think of it as more as club med than Alcatraz but hey you never know.
After all the place is fully air conditioned, we have music playing 24/7 and lots of food and huge exercise yards outside for playing.
Cheers Geoff
