    I wasnt trying to take a picture for an award, i just noticed him standing like that (dog) so i shot it real quick....Yes i know about the cinder block, and the car that distracts from the picture. But for some reason i still like it...

    I like it because you saw a photo op and reacted to it in no time (the "dog eats dog" impression his stance was giving), and now you have a FUNNY photo that makes people smile, and you created a photo that would NOT have worked like this from any other point of view (POV) since then the leg-snout constellation would have got lost. So whatever WAS your background at the time just WAS your background at the time. Never mind the background. Enjoy the SCENE. I do!

    He looks like he's just swallowing the last of another dog. That is the joke that is in this photo. Simple, but funny. Effective in so far as it makes me smile and look twice. So there. Not bad for what was basically created in the manner of a "snapshot"!

    Honestly, almost everything i take is a snap shot, a photo by accident. Whenever I have my SLR then i'll take in depth photo's (altough im trying right now, but the P&S, along with not having a good editing software really limits my abilities) But im not complaining. I wouldnt like the picture, if i didnt like the reason why i took it. Im just learning, and that's what forums are for. As tools to help you get going in the right path.

    Yes, for most of the time that is what I do with both my cameras, too, whether it be the DSLR or the Powershot (compact digital camera, call it "P&S", if you like) - make the most of the moment, as it were. See it - take it. So I hope you see that my critique is not negative critiqe at all!

    By the way, I have long found out that to "only have a basic P&S" is no excuse for badly composed photos or bad photography on the whole. A SLR or DSLR does not automatically take better pictures, only because it cost more in obtaining it! I have taken some of those I now consider my best photos ever with the Powershot!

    Understandable (that word looks long, or maybe its 4 a.m. and im tired) but! I dont take it as negitive at all (critisicm) I like it, that's all that matters. If someone else dont then ill just say. "I wont be able to take this shot again, a once in a moment shot as it were. Animals arent very good camera objects (like to move around alot) "

    Also, im trying to land this job as an Aerial Photographer for the US AirForce. So the job intitles that you fly in a jet, taking photos of jet's. (which would be amazing)
