    [​IMG]

    Shot with the Canona AE-1, f/2.8, 1/500

    Developed normally, scanned into computer and toned in Photoshop.

    I'm working on mastering depth of field, and I think I did pretty good on this one. Its tough getting a puppy to sit still for long enough to snap a decent picture.

    Any critique is welcome :)

    adorable expression on the puppy. too bad you didn't get the toes maybe turn this into a portrait by cropping.

    I agree with conch, i would have liked to see the dogs feet in the picture to complete the picture.

    the picture as a whole is very strong and I like the tone, it goes very well with the dogs facial expression.

    As for DOF, there isn't much in the background to judge, but it looks good to me. I am by no means an expert and anywhere close to it, but in my opinion, DOF is a personal thing. Certain picuters potentially need a certain DOF to get a point across or to convey a view, but in general, the same picture with a shallow DOF and a deep DOF could be a stong image in two different people's percpective.

    so...how exactly did you get your dog to stand still long enough???

    I think you've done a great job! My doggy doesn't want to stay calm for more than 2 sec. so it's almost impossible to catch him on the shot :)
