[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a sculpture of a dragon that actually emits fire. This was taken at the Taliesin West, a house designed and lived in by world-famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright. This garden sculpture is about two feet tall and sits at the corner of a seven-foot wall. I took this photo in the early evening on a guided tour of the architect's house. Taken using a Nikon Coolpix 4000, then increased contrast. Taliesin West is located in Scottsdale, Arizona.

That a great statue! One with interaction! It's impressive :o)
And the flame is very well captured. I like the way it turn too the dragon in shadow!

Very good shot!

This is magical. I love dragons. This is a great shot. Good balance and contrast.
Sounds like a very interesting place to visit. Did they charge you for entry?

Well shot, reminds me how much I love the "White Dragon" by Anne Mccaffrey. A very riveting read if your a lover of "Fantasy fiction"


Nice Work Again on the flame. It looks amazing as a silouhette. TFS :-)

This is an impressive shot. Perfect timing on the fire breath. It looks perfect as a silhouette.

Thanks for sharing this one.

Mystic shot, I like the contrast between the lighten flame and the darken dragon. However, we may think that you composite these 2 elements. It's strange to see that the head is not lighten. Regarding to your comment, there's no such post-process, so that's strange but true :)
