I like the black and white treatment, really focuses the viewpoint on the action.

All the above + a super title.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Thanks for the comments guys. Here is a bit of background to the image. Through my connection with the BWMBC I was contacted by PC Ian Squire who outlined the idea of setting up a charity for retired Durham county police dogs. They were after images for the charity.
I arranged for about ten members of Durham PS to meet up with members of the RPS for the shoot at a empty factory which was used for training. We had a great time over the best part of the day.
I had this image along with another featured in the first calendar LINK

I just rediscovered this image on my free Flicker account following a check after problems with Photobucket

I feel sorry for the bobbies these days who have to wear so much gear (and be expected to sit in and drive vehicles). Now I feel for the dogs too. Whatever is all that kit on his back? Surely his teeth suffice?

It is video gear to transmit live images

Not only a great shot and a well deserved POTW but it reminded me of an image I'd seen of a police dog in a similar pose. It was the wording that made me laugh: 'If you're being chased by a police dog, try not to go through a tunnel, then on to a little seesaw, then jump through a hoop of fire. They're trained for that.'

Still makes me laugh.

Oh, there was a second one: 'Please run, he likes fast food.'

Once again, great POTW and the charity idea is excellent. The power of photography, eh?
Be well, stay well.
