So unbelievably good. The composition and the treatment is like Woah!!! Voted

Wow. Terrific treatment of a very odd, but oddly compelling, subject.

Remarkable Craig. Your treatments are amazing.

I am not liking this one, Craig. It's very good and it's very realistic. I'm just not real fond of death. :)

Graphic and brill Craig..v.
When I was a kid there was an advert in the UK for road safety..featuring "Tufty the squirrel" to help kids cross the road.
If this was him I guess age and the wheels of a car have taken their toll.

Blood is simply here an excellent arte fact that provides this perfect dark stains to better see the clear parts. The toning is fabulous. Great work, Craig. Voted.

As with all tragedies, tainted with a hint of beauty ;-)K

WOW - you've given death color and texture and a reality
Ana Carloto O'Shea19-Oct-2006 10:16
I think your choice of image treatment was the best possible for this shot. It gave it an aura of mystery that surpasses the "death" bluntness and I must confess that from the thumbnail I could never have guess what the photo was about....
Congratulations Craig.

Stunning work - something beautiful created out of something grim.
AL19-Oct-2006 06:56
Really sad... But I'm glad it's not in bloody color :-( Agree with Eckhart, the harsh texture and monochrome tone made the death "natural", back to the earth.

stunning treatment!
Kevin Sargent19-Oct-2006 03:23
"Beautifully" composed. Very smart and well done.

Disturbing, reminds me of catherine d's dead dog sin which is still lingering in my subconscious.
Lester Weiss19-Oct-2006 01:53
speaking of disturbing, craig :)
nice stark contrast befitting of the subject matter

I like how in your processing he is about to be captured by the slowly enveloping darknesss.
Roe..19-Oct-2006 00:13

Christine P. Newman18-Oct-2006 23:46
The light and monochrome treatment are fantastic... the subject too.
olivier bruning18-Oct-2006 23:30
fantastic treatment, fabulous shot.loVe it!!
Eckhart Derschmidt18-Oct-2006 23:23
The eternal circle of life and death. The dead squirrel has already become reunited with the environment - at least in your treatment! Great shot!
faye white18-Oct-2006 23:09
excellent toning and comp - mysterious!
Michel CORBOZ18-Oct-2006 22:52
