Much better with more window showing. It helps explain the dogs' story. Either three rows of rivets or none. A single row at the bottom is distracting but showing them on the sides too explains their presence at the bottom. The bottom border is now too wide for me. I'd reduce the width of the aluminum siding by half, keeping the rivets.I'd also lose the brown border at the top of the curtains unless you have the top of the window available in the original. I'd vignette the top of the curtains a stop.Anything you can do to further increase the visibility of the dark dog will help.
Great shot, but we have been told in no uncertain terms. "On LuLa, NO CATS." : )Even though, as anyone can plainly see, the Internet runs on cats.
Thanks for your response and from everyone else's as well.I want to keep the second dog as vague and almost meancing. In his face I read resignation of yet one more time being disappointed but in such a manner as not to ever bark again.I'll probably lose the top part of the window frame and will look at vignetting the curtains. I did do quite a bit of work on them to diminish their value against that of the dogs thoough perhaps more is needed.
And I'd lose the single rivet at right.
KISS first, Andrew I am sure it has its theoretical name that escapes me at this moment, but isn't there a principle that says that if a simpler explanation fits, it is most likely the right one?
I suspect you're thinking of Occam's Razor, Slobodan. It's a principle that has been expressed in many ways: my favourite is "It is vain to do with more what can be done with less". I find it can be applied to almost everything I do.Jeremy
