An appealing photo.
Focus seems to be centered somewhere around the nose/eyes. As we can't see the eyes where should it be? His tongue, an important part of this image is fairly sharp. You had a fairly shallow/short depth of field due to the large aperture. You could have increased the ISO to allow a smaller aperture keeping the same shutter speed but increasing the areas in focus. Say from his tongue to behind his eyes.
High light details on top of his head have burnt out suggesting over exposure.
I've uploaded a mod following a short play to darken the highlights and sharpen the image a bit. You may be able to recover more lost detail in the highlights by going back to the RAW images and alter the exposure in your RAW converter.
Great dog,
Ian

A good shot Roger, - Im sure this shows the personality of the dog quite well.

Just a few hot spots due to light reflecting from the sky on the brighter areas of the coat which can be handled with a touch og the highlight tool in CS4.

Ive done this in the mod, cropped space from the left, sharpened a little, and increased contrast while lifting the shadow around the nose area.


Hope this is helpful,



Regards


Willie
