I would mainly really like help with crops and editing, and to ask if the sharpening method is okay (I just use smart sharpen in photoshop) or if there is another way (I personally don't think that the way I sharpen is good enough and I'd really like a way to make nice crisp photos [Similar to the user mhall's photos]

Stupid me shot this one too close, so this is not cropped.

Nice shots, I like them all.

#4,which you thought you shot too close is actually the best out of the set. I like the DOF and warmth of it.

Aside from the fact that I absolutely LOVE dogs and everything about them, I like all of these, especially the #1 - cant really tell why but I just cant stop looking at it.

For me, too. I might crop just a bit off the right side so my eye wouldn't go to the end of the bench.

You could crop much of the top in #1. #2 could be cropped tighter at the top to remove the building that doesn't add much. #3 looks pretty good. #4 could still be cropped closer...the end of the bench to the right doesn't enhance the image. Try cropping #5 right at the RR tracks at the top....remove the blown sky from the equation and use the leading lines.

I like them all but #1 is not attractive to MY eye.

#2 and #3 are very very nice.

Question: How do you get to shoot so many dogs ? Are people offering their dogs as models ?
