    #9 (one of your dog) could be a great shot, remember the rule of thirds, dont center your subject unless its symmetrical. Im uploading a different crop of that one right now to show you what I mean. ;)

    Thanks. I will try to do that more offten but not every pic. I just got lucky that she came around the corner and looked to see what i was taking pics of, and there wasnt any snow prints infront of her. So i hurried up and took the pic lol.

    Eventually it will be natural for you and you wont even think about it. ;)
    Also something else I noticed, remember to keep your horizon straight, if it comes out crooked crop it to straighten it.

    My Favs:

    #4 of your dog - maybe try a slightly tighter crop (off the top and right)

    #5 of your dog (would like it more with a wider crop... to show all of bandit along with his shadow)

    Many of them could use some work compositionally - to start.. the rule of thirds as mentioned before and giving your subject room to look: for example, the last of one bandit and the girl - the girl's gaze is getting cut off by the edge of the picture; would look better if there were less room to the right of the picture and more room to the left where your subjects are looking. Another tip... avoid cropping off at/on hands and feet (as in last photo of bandit). Also, the exposure seems to be off for some of them (for example, look at the sky in your car shots).

    btw, bandit is beautiful!

    ... of course I'm still learning too, so... :mrgreen:

    Just thought I would play with the dog for a bit... a little pile of snow to replace the truck with photoshop, a couple tweaks with Capture NX and a crop:
