    I actually had my camera set to capture some action shots of him playing in the snow..but he was not working with me that day...so I snapped this instead.. It could probably use a crop...what do you guys and gals think?

    This is a cute puppy! No doubt.
    Exposure worked fine, as domromer is already saying. Good. No doubt.
    Your idea of maybe cropping in a little closer is a valid one, too. Try it and see how much you will then like the result. I think this photo offers room for a nice crop to get yourself closer!

    Excellent exposure with the difficult black and whites.
    Crop? - na - you have got her(?) perfectly on a 1/3rd - you obviously have an artistic eye.

    One could just add a bit of contrast to her fur, thus...

    Not a simple step to do - I've been reading Dan Margulis's books and this change involved using the Blue channel contrast/sharpen action - I've put the (normal) green channel one as an action on my web site if you are interested.
    Very well done and thanks for sharing - now send us a bit of snow and I can try it!
    All the best

    AncientSnapper- If I could send you our snow..trust me.. I would! I'm not one for the cold weather.. Can't wait til spring rolls around and I can practice my skills..

    thank you all for the great comments! I'm very new to photography and just got done taking an 8 week class, so it's nice to know I'm on the right track..
