Lynne Morris 11/30/2008 3:31:11 AM

This is gorgeous Michelle, great tones and comp. #6828599

Nancyj E. Hovey 11/30/2008 3:38:16 AM

What a cutie, doggie and little boy. I agree with Doug - now we want to see the invisable become visable - the sister. lol. Love the composition, the lighting, and that expression is priceless. Great timing! 8o) #6828612

Carolyn M. Fletcher 11/30/2008 3:41:46 AM

Me, too!! This is adorable, but I want to see her, too! #6828621

Michelle Alton 11/30/2008 3:47:00 AM

OK...by Popular Demand (giggle), here is the original! #6828637

Anne M. Young 11/30/2008 3:59:26 AM

Awesome work ... #6828676

Stephanie Frey 11/30/2008 4:05:48 AM

Great capture! Adorable!
Did you edit her out, then? If so you did excellent PS work! #6828694

Manuel Barrera 11/30/2008 4:06:33 AM

Boy if we could make some people disappear with ps, I be in hog heaven. Great dd work, Michelle, and awesome image #6828698

Michelle Alton 11/30/2008 4:08:02 AM

Yes, I did. Well, all except her polka-dotted stockinged foot...which I just realized is still visible! #6828708

Stephanie Frey 11/30/2008 4:09:49 AM

LOL, I would have never had noticed if you had not pointed it out. Still, excellent work! #6828717

Nancyj E. Hovey 11/30/2008 4:15:18 AM

Oh lol, Michelle, that is cute...I didn't notice the stocking foot either, until you mentioned it. I still had a difficult time 'seeing' it with these old eyes. Love it. 8o) #6828738

Tiia Vissak 11/30/2008 4:23:35 AM

a cute image! #6828796

Deb Koskovich 11/30/2008 4:24:28 AM

Ok, I laughed three times over this! Once because the boy and dog are so darn CUTE, especially with the title you gave it. Secondly, the girl just cracked me up, and third when I went back to the version that you entered to see the girl's feet!! So thanks for the multiple chuckles, and may I just say ... WINNER!!! #6828803

Tammy M. Anderson 11/30/2008 4:30:31 AM

This is fantastic, Michelle. This has to be a winner. I loved the whole story behind this image getting to this point too. Just terrific. #6828843

Nadine A. Lewis 11/30/2008 5:03:00 AM

I say, "FANTASTIC" as well, Michelle!!! LOVE the tones and slight effects!!! I'm sure we'll see this again!!!! <>< #6828985

Ron McEwan 11/30/2008 5:03:41 AM

It is not as hard on him because he has his best friend with him. Ha! A precious shot here, well done for sure. #6828988

Howard B. Cheek 11/30/2008 5:24:35 AM

Hi Michelle,
You can't go wrong with a boy & his dog :)
Cute expression on the boy, great work!
Howard #6829088

Joseph N. DiGilio 11/30/2008 5:27:25 AM

Nice job Michelle. I love this capture. It's interesting how some dogs gravitate to the young ones. Sometimes I think it's because they are protective. Sometimes because they pet them and other times its just because they drop lots of food. These two just look like they are hanging out, enjoying each others company during intermission. Great editing as always. #6829090

Bojan Bencic 11/30/2008 5:29:42 AM

Fantastic photo and story, Michelle. So cute. #6829097

Bill Wyatt 11/30/2008 5:30:56 AM

Or man's best friend :0) This is wonderful Michelle! I love the moment, square crop, effects, just everthing about it. Well done!! #6829180

Lynn M. Whitt 11/30/2008 6:11:47 AM

Ahhh, that is too cute... #6829295

Bonnie C. Lackey 11/30/2008 6:14:02 AM

The title says it all, Michelle. This is precious! Your comments made me laugh - you're like the fairy godmother who, with a touch of her wand, can make pouty little girls just disappear! #6829304

Jessica Jenney 11/30/2008 6:40:07 AM

The wonders of Photoshop! LOL! I really think think both photos are adorable! And so is your story, Michelle! You did a fantastic job! #6829380

Wally Orlowsky 11/30/2008 7:22:31 AM

Great scene and work, Michelle! If only it were so easy to remove uncooperative children in real life ;) #6829505

William C. Raco 11/30/2008 7:41:18 AM

I love his expression and gaze.
Beautifully done, Michelle #6829577

Susie Peek-Swint 11/30/2008 2:53:49 PM

I love both shots Michelle ~ too funny about leaving in the stockings! Until I read through the comments I thought perhaps you'd turned her into the dog :) #6831262

Rhonda Burger 11/30/2008 3:38:06 PM

Mary K. Robison 12/2/2008 12:28:45 AM

A darling child and dog, Michelle. Your treatment and muted colors give this image such a beautiful antique look. Turning his sister "invisible" must've taken quite a bit of work! Great job! #6837844

Renata Gusciora 12/2/2008 6:55:23 AM

Mitch Spence 12/3/2008 9:02:10 AM

Oh, that is such a thorough time out for the sister, LOL. But I love the title for what remains, and I love the color palette, and it's so much fun wondering what the boy and dog did that got them this most photogenic time out. :) #6844877

Cassie L. Woodlee 12/3/2008 11:48:48 AM

Thankgiving afternoon. The boy's sister was sitting on the top stair, but she had her bottom lip turned inside out and her upper lip tucked against her teeth...so she is invisible now.
