I'm a complete beginner that just started using my first DSLR.
Critique and suggestions welcome!

Well the dog is a darling !!
If you are going for a special look for your dog, I'd try getting a backround that makes him really stand out.
If he/she will obey without a leash on, that would even be better.
I generally shoot my dog with a long lens with a wide aperature to blur the backround and get him very crisp.
If you'd like to see an example here is a link:
I'd really LOVE to see some close up of his face?
What a beauty!
She's a girl. The problem is I was in a busy park with lots of children and the parents really don't like it if I keep my dog off leash. Also there were tons of rabbits and animals that she was chasing like crazy.
Your dog shot is amazing! What lens were you using?
Thanks, I understand completely. I used a AF-Nikkor 55-200mm.
I also should mention that I cropped his photo for that shot.
You could try that with your dog and get a really great head shot that would be awesome.
I understand about the leash completely. I am surrounded by 1,000 acres of land so no distractions like you mentioned...plus my dog is a wuss, he won't go far from me.
The first one is over exposed. I like the expression on her fast in the last one. Seems to be glaring at you.
I did do an edit on this but because of the low resolution, it came out a bit 'choppy' looking.
This is sort of the look or looks I was thinking of...
Try some more shots of her face and head...
Thanks for all the feedback
