In a very cold windy day, walking up and down outside a restaurant we stopped to order lunch I found this quite attentive dog, as I saw he was tied not called him, only take a photo because I love dogs and he has matching colors with the building at the back, incidentally a typical southern one with tilted roof to avoid the snow accumulation
Early this same morning it has fallen some snow, cold has arrived the grass wss yellow, the trees red and snow began to cover the top on the mountains

(du lebst auf der falsche Halbkugel der Erde, wir hatten heute +30° Grad.)
Dein Foto hat eine sehr gute Bildschärfe und Vermittelt die Einsamkeit des Hundes!

cuando he visitado la tierra del fuego he visitado un parque que ya no me recuerdo el nombre, pero pienso que no sea esto. hermoso encuadre usando bien los elementos y el perro.

Salut mi amiga,
Hmm, lets see...it's a dog, so yes...I like it already! :) Good looking one too, but he sure looks lonely out here all by himself...at least tied up anyway. I bet when he's not, it's "go time" with all the room to run around and play. :) I like that he's the focus of your attention, but you were wise to have included the background elements and open space for context. I also really enjoy the strong, natural colors in this shot. Short on time, so I have to run. Have a great weekend ahead. All the best.
Friendly wishes from the North side,

Well balanced with the house and the dog in each corner of the shot, nice light and warm tones, tfs.

this is a beautiful composition with lovely colours and sharpness. The isolated setting with the hill and the couple of buildings is displayed in beautiful light. The dog in the foreground makes a perfect subject. Beautiful contrast between the warm tones of the picture with the blue and white sky.
Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend.

Besides the dog which always being loved, I see a red / orange color on the trees up on the slope behind the house. A fabulous mix, maybe due to the morning light upon.
Taken a nice moment, well composed, sharp details.

Hola Maria querida,
creo que por el griego habias utilizado el traductor e las frases que mi has escrito no son las frutas de algun corso intensivo:) This photo is very particular, the dog is so close to the low border and there's great depth behind it. You chose a point of view that makes the setting look deserted and the dog would be quite lonely in this frame if you weren't there to make a contact. An interesting scenery, immersed in the light, colours and mood of autumn. Congratulations and thank you!
Todo lo major y un buen fin de semana,

Ah c'est comme Jason :-) bravo pour ce très joli et sympathique thème, il est très beau ce chien , un regard fier et doux, dommage que sa laisse est si courte, des couleurs chaudes de l'automne qui est chez toi en cette période de l'année, ici, c'est mitiger entre la pluie et le soleil
Passe une belle soirée

He makes a great subject, and that he matches the building is a big bonus. He looks quite attentive alright, almost as if he is surprised by your camera! I really like your composition, creating depth and showing us a tempting peak of the snow atop that mountain.
Thanks as always

What a wonderful photo. The dog brings the picture to live.. How lovely. :-D

Whenever I see a house across a yellowed field, and in the foreground a living creature, I think of Andrew Wyeth's painting, "Christina's World." It must be cold, I see streaks of snow on the hills. Very good composition. Have a good Sunday, Maria.

Nice capture with good pov and layout. The watchdog at the foreground adds life to the scenery.
TFS and best regards

Most likely a watch dog tied on a short leash, but fortunately it has a clear view around the building in case of 'invasion'!
It composes, compared to the mid-plane and then the mountain, a good 3D-like impression.

Encore une intéressante scène avec une belle lumière incidente latérale, c'et le genre d'image que je préfère
Cela donne un relief intéressant

el perrito es el guardia de éste paisaje precioso!!
te agradezco mucho por tus comentarios y tu amistad...

Yes, we are back from Israel. I enjoyed every minute of it. It was nice and warm, quite opposite to the weather you describe in your note. The only common factor was that their grass was yellow, too, but not from lack of water. Nice pooch in the foreground.

I too am a lover of dogs.
Looking at this fellow, i'd be tempted to let him free and loose :)
I'm not a fan of having dogs tied up.
good eye to notice the same colors in the dog and building, and I like the note about the formation of it so snow doesn't accumulate too much - interesting.
clear shot on this cool day.
