    First picture of your dog would have been so ridiculously awesome if it weren't so soft.

    Soft as in it is not real sharp, it is not focused - so some of the detail is lost.

    None of the dog pictures really stand out, but keep trying. Dogs don't mind if you practice on them :)

    The car picture isn't real different or interesting for me, but it is fine image.

    Personally, I don't like shots taken the way the first 2 dog photos are. Looks like a superwide angle was used with the camera VERY close. The depth of the photo is distorted and makes it look like the nose is coming right at the viewer.

    Just personal opinion. For dogs, action shots are what I like. Running, chasing a ball or frisbee, chomping or trotting off with a stick, laying in the yard guarding their precious toys as if it's the only toy they have, stuff like that.

    I don't know, just scrolling through to get the first dog picture made me reel back as if I was going to get bonked by the nose.

    Ha - awesome. You just explained the reason MOST people shove wideangles lenses in the faces of their subjects. I know I try to. Distorting perspective and amplifying "depth" is one of the reasons to use a wideangle lens.

    I actually like the car picture. It looks as if its in a movie. Where the guy is a bad gangsta with a nice care who nobody messes with. :)

    eh you will be depressed to know the kid with the viper is only 19 lol :p and its his not his parents and his parents didnt buy it for him.. the viper was under street lights and all around the car was street lights which is why its all orange.. i preset the whitebalance to that setting and thats how it came out i even edited it on the white balance if i turn it down anymore it turns all blue..
