Beautiful doggy portrait. Maybe crop off the right and make it a true portrait image?
9/10

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.

6/10

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...

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.
