261:365 Choke

    For July's Monthly Scavenger Hunt.

    A choke chain, is used for training dogs. If they pull against the lead they are physically choked whilst a submissive dog will barely notice its presence. This form of training is now going out of favour and being replaced with dog whispering which is much kinder to the dogs.

    This is one of those ideas that I've had in my head for ages but when it came round to doing it I couldn't quite transfer idea from head to camera. I will probably revisit now that I have my choke chain but this means I actually finished MSH early this month!

    Also for monochromatic TOTW.

      This is so fantastic!!! I love the idea and how you processed it. The fading out is really nice.

      Great detail in the chain and nice composition. I'm not a huge fan of the texture, but everyone else seems to be so don't listen to me too much.

      Incredible take on choke. Well done - classy and ever so slightly disturbing. Brilliant processing here. seen in msh
