This is a very friendly Doberman called Holly, in fact I can't think of one Doberman I've met that hasn't been friendly.
From a photographic perspective long nose breeds such as Doberman's, can be quite difficult to achieve sharp focus from the tip of the nose to the top of the Ear.
I find using a focus point an Inch (sorry showing my age, 25mm) of so in front of the Eyes along the Nose normally does the trick.
I sometimes use empty space within a Photograph, as it isolates the subject.
In this Photo of Holly there is quite an area a large area above her Head, but looking at the Photograph the viewers Eyes should be drawn to Holly's Eyes.
Well that's the theory......
