    I cut of the bottom of her nose on purpose. I don't know if that's a good thing or not, though. This is as wide angle as it goes. I even had a x.8 magnifier on the front.

    This shot isn't working for me...because of the colors of the object surrounding the dog are similar to his coloration, he's getting lost in the image.

    The image lacks something...the noise in the image is killing the sharpness and I feel like there isn't enough contrast/lack of highlights.

    Cute pup, but it's underexposed, composition isn't complimentary (way too close for a cute pic, not otherwise "artistic" enough to pull off the close-up), distracting elements around the dog (not the best scene).

    Very cute pup, though. :)

    Samanax summed up pretty good. The light is to even and the pattern in the furniture is pretty busy. I keep getting drawn to that reddish spot in the background, upper right corner.

    What did they say at school? You're taking college level photography classes, right?

    Is that an Australian Cattle Dog?

    Agreed - too close, and lack of contrast - I have a pet portraits gallery on my Pet Services website if you want to check out my pet pics:

    Thanks for the comments everyone. This noise is still there at 200 ISO!!! IT drives me crazy. Not to mention the noise filter is all the way up *grumbles*

    I wish I was taking a college-level photography class. I've never taken a class in my life. The only peer-review I get is on here. All I have is a few books and my imagination, which is obviously not all that good.

    This is an Australian Cattle Dog, but I call her a Blue Heeler (you'd know why if you had one). And the red dot is, ironically enough the charger for my camera battery...lol!

    BTW, I have real problems getting her photo. Cause if she's not laying down (late at night), she runs up to me and tries to lick my camera. Its impossible to get her without some blur, if I don't get these sorts of shots (on my brown carpet. :-(

    btw, noise at low ISO is due to underexposure.

    You're still shooting with a P&S, right? Things will get better after you upgrade to a DSLR...I think you mentioned you were getting one soon or something like that.
