Finalist - November 2009
*Digital Darkroom*

Composite of two images, both taken yesterday, 20 November 2009.
My beloved dog Silas was looking out the door watching the kids leave for school when I captured him, then later in the afternoon I shot the road/farm image while out and about in the local countryside.

Oh, Amy...this is just marvelous. A terrific composite! Your image tells a wonderful story - just looking at it, I can see Silas' wish to be running thru the fields or down the road after the school bus. Wonderful...just wonderful!
