I was going through some of my photos from China taken about two years ago and decided this one could use a little more attention. I wanted to increase the contrast and desaturate the colors to make it look moodier and a little bit dirtier. There are a number of little elements that I like in this photo; the rope reflected in the puddle, the scattering of bones like this is some ferocious beast in its layer and the wet feet and dirty coat of the dog.
