Extraordinary Tricks

This was a composite that was originally created for a pet photography contest. The theme was Halloween costumes, and since I am a car enthusiast and do a lot of my own mechanic work, it seemed fitting that I would dress my dog, Tai, as a mechanic.

Tai actually sat in my tool box like that, although the photo of him was shot indoors and the car was shot in my parking spot/car port (I didn't dare risk letting him out off-leash)

I had recently changed my spark plugs, so I was able to use them as props to help make this shot more authentic.

I was laughing as soon as I saw the thumbnail. What a great final image. So did you win the contest?

A fantastic concept and very well executed love it!

I am being very nit picky here, but a couple of the edges look a little "sharp" did you feather edges at all when you cut them out?
