    The vignetting was also added using lightroom with some other changes

    not bad, in my opinion the white balance is off and its a tad out of focus, ruining it for me, i like the composittion and the backdrop though.

    It looks great! Yes, teh focus is slightly off, but it's negligible. I think the background color is a little too close to the dog's colors, but that's just me. I like the bokeh and the vignetting is a nice touch in my opinion.

    The cat tail picture i'm not a fan of though. The colors are to harsh and teh composition is a bit bland.

    Thanks folks. I must say i did the editing on my laptop. I am now sitting at my home monitor and my color definitely a wee bit off. The cat tail looks awfull to me now. The background for the dog is sun lit dead grass. it was the days last light which lit him up nicely. Maybe the saturation was a bit over done, but he does usually look orange in the sun. Thanks again.

    Also since taking that photo i have used the microadjustment feature on my 50D and it was way off. I had to step it back almost 2 units. Microadjustment is the bomb
