A great capture of the dog, with the camera settings nicely freezing the action. But what is he trying to catch ?

Although the scenery is very pretty, exposed wonderfully and very vibrant, I think it should have been straightened on the horizon or as in the mod I uploaded a much tighter crop altogether focusing more in the dog itself. Doing this crop does place the subject a little too much to the middle of the image to retain the splashes but still leaves plenty of room for the dog to move into.

Of cause all this is just my opinion, and I'm far from any type of expert
What do you think?

Good try, but the strong impact shot here is by filling the frame with the dog and object he is after. The background is much larger than the dog and a distraction. You had a top quality lens on the camera - needed to be at 300mm (450mm on your Nikon.)

Rajay congratulations.

I bet this was an unexpected picture and you were happy because you captured it.

The horizon, which is not straight, stresses the feeling of the sudden move you did

to pick the camera,
(to swtich it on too?)
point
frame
and take the picture

You know something?

I could also tell from
the shape of the buildings
and the trees
it was not shot in the U.K.
and I suspect it is shot on the banks of a lake or river.

It's a shot that could be manipulated as other members suggest. You can crop it.

Cut off the land opposite,where the buildings are, and the issue with the horizon is resolved.

Was this your dog? You may be able to repeat the jumping dog picture if you ask a friend to throw it something to catch while you are sat down and better prepared to take a similar picture.

I saw this was your first picture here. Good luck with photography.
