Day 24 - Shadow Bookends

Today's assignment: Use hard light that casts sharp distinct shadows in a photograph today. It's VERY cold here today (-40 with the windchill this morning). It warmed up to -31 this afternoon so we put the dogs' coats on them and took them out to the back yard so they could get some fresh air, very fresh. Although it's cold, it's very sunny so getting shadow pictures today was quite easy. I got Sadie's front and Dexter's back side and tail as they were standing next to the pool. Peg had the idea to put them together as book ends. I played a bit in Photoshop and voila.

Very creative! Wish I was as talented with PS as you are! So is that technically a Dex-die? Or a Sa-xter? :)
