More practice tonight with the external flash... Think I'm getting it. Also, yes I know she's a dog. And I know there are a lot of dog pictures here. Pretend she's not a dog if that will help you get past that and give some C&C. How is the lighting in this? What do you see wrong? I want to learn, I really do. What I see: It's dark on the left of her face... But it looks like "good dark" if that makes sense? Unfortunately her ear to the right was cut off, and her dog tag kind of throws it for a second as this black dot amongst all the tan/blonde. You can see her name on the tag, but do you think this should be sharpened so it's easily readable, left alone, or blurred (probably not the right word... less clear)? I'm not sure I could edit it out completely or even if this would make the picture any better. Thoughts?
