But just a few helpful hints for ya..... It makes it eaier for folks to cc if you number your images and 2 if you give us the exif data...
Let me ask you this what is the story you are trying to portray in this photo?? What I see is someone pulling their hair out or scratching their head. I think your exposure is good.
Im pretty sure yoy have too shallow a dof it wouldve been nice to see the whole face of the dog in focus. Def good focus on the eye but the nose is oof. I kinda dont like the crop and wish the rest of his shoulder was in the picture.
just me 2 cents worth... not a bad job and keep on shootin
