Wise Old Dog

By Samsterhamster
Taken by the lake in Black Park.
He looks like a very wise old dog. I wonder what he's thinking?

Great looking subject.... but... take a look at the links in the comments in your previous upload. With this image I feel that you need a bigger depth of field. You have focused on the eyes (good!) but the limited depth has put his nose and ears out of focus. While looking at the ears, where's the tops gone ?? and look around the viewfinder before pressing the button, it looks like a tree in the background which is distracting. Hope you find the comments constructive Smile

Geoff has good advice, I'd also throw in a suggestion to look at what's NOT in the photo, sometimes negative space, i.e. a part of the photo with nothing in, can be very effective at drawing attention to the rest of the image. I'd have placed the dog on the left of the frame and had an empty space to his right given the direction of his eyes.
Otherwise enjoy, especially the camera you've chosen, I've had my 550 for 3 years now and still surprises me occasionally. Invest in some good glass when you can, makes a WORLD of difference.

Thanks for the feedback guys.
I did wonder where his ears had gone Wink
I'm still in the just point and shoot frame of mind at the moment .
Depth of field? Not sure what that means sorry : /
God I'm such a novice!
All feed back is welcomed... I just might have to ask lots of questions if that's ok?
Many thanx
