that dog just completely steals everything in both pictures i feel. no matter where you look your attention always seems to be drawn back to the dog
very cool pics
I agree with this. If you leave the dog in, keep in mind that the dog steals the show. Its no insult to the model/subject, but this dog is just so animated, its impossible not to look at him first. Especially the second one, how he has one ear cocked up and the other down... so cute!
Plus, I don't know what you call it, but I'd leave out the white parts on the girl's cheeks if possible. I think that's where people think it looks plastic-y because it shines waay more than a person's skin really does (unless they're oily, which isn't good either). Are they called highlights, or is that just the bright parts of pictures?
