What do you think about the coloring on this?? I know it's not normal, but I think it goes well with a sad, "gloomy" looking dog.

Thoughts here??

Thanks in advance.

I'd be gloomy too if I knew that you'd get my nose out of focus! I like the colors & the light on him/her, but not so much the highlights on the couch. Maybe you could flag some of them out when you reshoot.

I actually like it as it is—well, except for that bright band at the very bottom.

Pic reminds me of the dog wallpaper that came with Windows XP. 8-)

I liked the image and you captured it really well. I wish to use it as my mobile wall paper :)

I like the image, colors look great. I agree with the others on improvements. A little PP would cure all but the OOF nose.

The only improvement to be made is a 're-crop' to remove the distracting white-band at the bottom of the image.
composition = faultless (with the re-crop exception)
Colours = perfect
Lighting = spot-on
Focusing = quite like the look of the nose being softly focused, the dog's eyes are tack-sharp and for me that counts more!
I would be very proud to achieve a shot like this!

I would try to lessen the highlights on the leather. Especially the stripe next to his paw. My eye goes there first instead of the dog.

BTW:-- that is one cute 'puppy' you have there - the lighting totally flatters the silky-looking fur!

I'm not sure what the color should look like, but what you have looks fine to me and not particularly unnatural and definitely fits the mood.

Maybe this is a personal thing, but I find 2x3 verticals of subjects that are of a completely different shape unsettling. I don't think it has to be horizontal or square, but vertical 4x5 or something would seem more natural to me.
