Queenstown dog show – Brent Hollow
There’s a lot happening in this scene, maybe too much as my eye wandered around and ended up stuck on the lady in the white fur coat with matching hat, made me wonder a bit wearing this at the dog show. The girl in the foreground having a tug of war with a dog interested in something else adds some drama. The strong side lighting almost backlit helps give almost a three dimensional effect and helps the subjects stand out. The author has applied a vignette around the outside edge and I think that this has over darkened the subject matter, it would have been better not to apply this. The black & white treatment suits this scene.
