+ve: Great comp. Lovely detail. Natural frame works well.

-ve: Decreased DOF would blur the BG. You've got the natural frame, so why add another? Would've been better to Burn the light ground for better contrast (v minor, difficult to have done - needed a 3rd -ve!)

Overall, its a great pic - tho' couldn't entirely agree with Michael (spaceman), for obvious reasons!

No control over DOF as I shot this with a Fuji Finepix F410 (automatic compact!) but I take on board the other points...thanks. Smile

+ve Good composition. I particularly like the way he is looking directly into the camera.

-ve I agree background would have been better blurred but I so understand the limitations of a compact.

He looks a character but you can almost feel the potential for drool.

Good shot, very good eye contact. Nicely marked Pointer. I know what he's thinking. Wish I had the brains of a Field Spaniel.

+ve: Nice framing with the fence, good comp, I like how the dog is on a slight angle.

-ve: A chage in your DOF would bring more focus to your subject matter.

Have you tried it in B&W? (Sorry if I've asked this before but I love B&W- its my eternal question!! LOL)

Great dogie shot, love it.

I also have a Fuji compact with no dof so sometimes I copy the subject, blur the whole pic the paste the subject back (example 'Naked & Dangerous)...it's not a brilliant way to do it but sometimes improves the picture.

Good luck, Click!

Thanks for all tips...I don't like manipulating photos more than what you could do as minor tweaks in the darkroom. I don't feel this shot is worth messing with...when it comes down to it it's only really a snap!

+ve: Well framed shot and appear to have caught the dogs character

-ve: The background is a little distracting, could maybe do with darkening and blurring.

I agree with Mark about the border, I don't think this image needs it. Well done, click.
