    Cute, but it looks like you've got some posterisation from the blue channel in there...or is that noise?

    Sorry it's nothing more than just another photo of a dog like everyone with a point and shoot camera takes every day. Also very little contrast and those black and white borders aren't helping your photos. Borders are a cheap trick to try and add composition to a photo. When someone views a photos their eyes will travel through the image a good photo will be well executed to keep the viewer entertained and keep their eyes within the frame. When you have a weak composition the viewers eyes will just leave the photo, by adding a border your a basically blocking the viewers eyes from naturally leaving the photo but it doesn't make it a better image.

    Yep, thats a portrait of your dog alright.

    Cute pose, but not a very good photograph. Tops of the head are blown out, lack of contrast, lack of sharpness, ear looks to be a bit cut off as well.

    Read up on the technical parts of taking a picture, exposures, lighting as well as on composition of an image and the importance of tack sharp focus on the eyes.
