    Hi! I don't have my favorite with me at the moment, but I'll post one I took last weekend at the Fishers Freedom Festival. I was assigned to take pictures of the parades, and I stumbled across thos Goldendoodle sporting his Uncle Sam hat and flag-like cape. He was too cute not to get a picture of. Now, feel free to critique and comment...I have thick skin and personally don't think you learn much from only the "fluffy" comments. So bring it on. :D

    You shouldn't take pictures of animals while looking down at them. Try to get closer to eye-level.

    I never thought about getting on eye-level with them (the animal/pet). It makes sense now that I think about it. Thank you for the pointer, I appreciate it! :)

    From a "fun" factor I love it. Very Cute. From a photo stand point -I would suggest cloning out the leash, and trying to get the whole dog in the frame. Also watch the shadows. The pooch looks like it was a very willing subject. ;) :thumbup:

    Can't really think of anything else to add that hasn't already been said, but it is cute. :thumbup:

    The Goldendoodle was a ham. :lol:

    Thanks for the advice on shadows and I'll start working on the cloning now. Thanks again!

    Here is an updated (no leash) picutre. Does the photoshop work look okay?

    Thank you all!

    I can still see a little bit of the leash on the top and bottom of the dogs neck. You might want to zoom in and get rid of that.

    Nice job heather!
    I agree with Weaving Wax, still just a bit to fix, being nit picky. But I thought it was going to be tough to clone out that chain. :thumbup:

    The dog's collar would have been okay to leave in, it was really just the leash.;)
