Walking in center city Philadelphia one cold night, I came upon a dog wearing a hoodie, and its person. Too dark to do available light, I needed to use the flash, which I usually try to avoid. All in all, a pretty silly scene.

Composition is quite jumbled up here causing the lack of a specific subject. I can guess that it is the dog, but a girl with a fag in her mouth is also competing for attention. As they appear, neither seems worthy I am afraid.

For dog pics it is preferable to isolate the dog or where you want both as a candid or othewise, be sure to incluce both in your frame. Also with animals, better pictures will appear if you get down to eye level with them. They appreciate it more and will appear more photogenic and your final upload will benefit from it.

Now I am assuming that your camera will not permit smaller apertures like f8 (Please tell me if I am wrong) so the ideal aperture cannot be set but I am still left wondering why, with flash, you are using an ISO of 6400! There again, you do not ever get 'red eye' from dogs, they often appear as green or blue, (and only when you are getting a reflection of their retina) so red -eye reduction flash is not required.

Not one for the exhibition wall I am afraid.

Amusing but composition is not good. You need to ask the person to come into some kind off informal pose to make a picture. The back of the dog in a strange position and the person in parts, with fag in mouth don't really gel. Talk to them and ask for a pose.
