Beautiful doggy portrait. Maybe crop off the right and make it a true portrait image?

6/10 Nice shot, could use a bit more contrast. There is alot of blur and I would like to see a nice sharp dog and a bokeh grass in the background. give it better depth.

6/10 Good catchlight and expression. The whole thing is a bit overexposed for my taste, the bib is blown out beyond detail, and the brighter cheek draws the eye in with no detail to rest on. The nose looks a little OOF, but otherwise the sharpness is good. You might try a close portrait crop to get rid of all that wall space and the thumb. As a snapshot of a loved one it's great, but it's not what I want to hang on my wall.

Could you explain where there is a lot of blur? On the dog?

When I look at the edges of the dog. The eyes are a little blured. I'd like to see sharpness. I'd like to see the detail in the hair. The camera looks like it focused on the chest maybe. I think the other 2 shots on your flicker are better examples. they just look clearer to me. A sharp and defined break between the subject and background. the back is greaner and less detailed. the subject is sharper and i can see more depth. I'd like to see a bit more contrast and light adjustements in post abit to get rid of the slight light exposure.

I like this photo much better sharpness wise. just an opinion. sorry if you didn't want me to post this shot.
8/10 - eye is a bit sharper. I can make out all the little indivual hairs all around his edges. background has a nice bokeh. I just think that this is a cleaner shot than the other. I may be being too picky. perhaps someone else has another review..
Look at the photos side by side and I think you'll see the other has a slight blur compared to this one.

There isn't an element of the image that is making it interesting or intriguing. Maybe if the framing added some space to the left it would let you wonder a little more as to what he is looking at. I always like eye contact with animals.

Orbitechgr - 7/10 - I love the colour of the birds contrasting with the background
Kaboomed _ 6/10 - I like the shot but I'm not a fan of the colour on the boat... :)

I'm not sure what I'm supposed to rate...

CSHORT: 9/10 love the colors in the glass, and same for the dog... That's a very unique looking dog, otherwise I wouldn't rate it so high because very few animal pictures are interesting enough to sink in and settle for a while... That one does.

4/10

I just don't really like the composition, the two firemen standing next to each other hiding the one leg is a bit confusing. I would like to see a shallow dof on some charred house and the firemen a bit blured.

lol. Yeah, I'll remember that next time I stage a fire at my complex at 8am. "hey could you let the fire burn a little longer and maybe have a fireman standing in it somewhere I can see so I could snap a few more pictures". :cool:

im not much of a critic to anyone's work but my own so take this with a grain of salt...

contrast is a bit flat. the DOF on the glass is distracting to me...

7.5/10...

my bride, 14 seconds after i put her camera and lens together for her on our anniversary in 2010...

for a shot right out of the camera...i'd give it an 8/10....but what do I know, I hadn't figured out my own photos yet! ;) I really like how you were able to keep any flash reflection out of the glasses.

Here's one I took of a little boy last weekend.
