    I picked up a D5000 two weeks ago and have been playing around. Thought I would share a few. Feel free to make suggestions, I'm always willing to learn something new.

    Maybe when you are 'shooting' your dog, try some different angles with him and experiment. Straight on isn't always really interesting, although that is a nice looking pooch!

    Practice and experiment with angles and the 2/3rds rule of thumb.

    This is my pooch looking intently at something only he could see. I did 'shoot' him and then crop his hind end out so the viewer wouldn't have to look at his rear end.

    Enjoy and keep shooting.

    Not really sure what that means...

    Thanks for the suggestion Mulewings. I've been busy learning the camera and software, composition is next in line. Nice pooch yourself!

    I am a noob so I'm not sure what it's worth, but IMO, I think #1 is probably the easiest to look at because it has a definite area where my eyes are drawn to, the eyes of the dog. I can't say it's very interesting though...possibly because of little detail or not much color.

    Although I really like the colors and sharpness of #2, the light gradient from left to right is very distracting. Maybe you were standing in front of the light source? Also, I'm curious as to why you cut the top of the bottle off?

    I don't understand #3...I'm not sure what part of the picture I'm supposed to be looking at. Maybe the spines? But there are many spines that draw equal attention, which leave my eyes wandering around.

    I mostly read C&C comments to learn myself, but thought I'd take a stab at yours and see if anyone even closely agrees with me. :)
