    many of them seem oof. Were you shooting at f 1.4? That might be why the focus is slightly off on some, at such a wide aperture, it can be tough to focus spot on in close range.

    wait. maybe not. Were the longer exposures? Below 1/60?

    OMG if that's not the cutest dog ever! Nice shots. I really like #2 & #3. I agree about the focus, though. Still really great shots.

    thanks

    i was thinking the blurry background is bokeh? i think i could have centered the pictures better.

    On that note, the rule of thirds is a good thing to read up on.

    They're pretty much all out of focus, work on your focusing technique and don't try and use the lens wide open (at f/1.4) until you have mastered it.
