This image was first worked on many years ago ~ and like a lot of "old images" 
in my photo files, unfortunately, it was neither 
named by subject or identified by blogger! 
So first and foremost, if the owner happens to see it, I do apologize ... 
for some reason though, in the deep recesses of my mind,
I kind of think this little guy on the hunt may be named Charley.  
Unsure, but it sounds right!
Anyway, once I came across the photo, I decided to update it for CATURDAY ART, 
sponsored by Athena, Cat Goddess.  
Though not a cat (guess that's rather obvious) ... my first dog,
and my last were beagles ... and like "Charley" here, they always went about ...
nose to ground, tail up, on the hunt.  
Thus it seemed appropriate to show him
in motion, motion repeated, like the wind.  
Go, Charley, Go.
With Photoshop you can add percentages of layers of the same photo,
and convert some of those layers to black and white, 
then resize them to add impact to the overall image and
you can use a tool called "wind" on the edge of the photo to give 
the motion effect. The main photo background of trees and leaves was
posterized and recolored so the photo of the dog would stand out.

  1. Great picture. Beagles are terrific. Our Person had one many many years ago. They do like to hunt but they are fun dogs. Hope all of you have a great day. We love dogs too along with cats. And donkeys. By the way Ann, Joe sends his best Hee Haw to ya.

  2. I like the new image of "Charley", lots of interest in the multiple views.

  3. Great pic!
