Heya,

For these, especially small dogs, I would drop to the ground, not just a knee, but elbows to the ground, get to the eye level, or below.

Very best,

You caught the action well, with the hair (fur?) flying. Face is in focus too, and you left him some space to run "into"

It looks great to me. Wish you had shot vertical. Or you could crop the sides & take a little off the top.

Nice. Agree some cropping would enhance.

Nice color, love the expression and action. While typically i'd agree with @MalVeauX about getting down, I love that there's no ugly background... the grass is perfect and no distractions.

Only complaint is that it is dead center. I'd do some creative cropping to get him in a different spot in the image

While I usually agree the rule of thirds is a good rule to go by, sometimes centering the subject works better IMO. The nature of a charge is centered by nature - the animal faces you directly with the body aligned straight at you. The centering enhances the body language, and I won't move her into a third. I'll play around with the crop but I pretty much like it like this with all the grass to give the sense that she's coming at me. Next time I'll remember to get lower, although then could introduce the edge of the yard into the frame.

Most often when speaking of thirds it is referencing left to right. But remember there are vertical thirds as well. You can stay aligned straight, full charge feel but move her up to the top third mark to get a more dynamic feel.

Here's an edit, although next time I'll remember to get on the ground.

And another one that is lower, plus she is in an upward motion so that helped.

Cropping and then maybe stopping up an f/ stop too.

Looks like you have an active lil fella on your hands :)
