I think the previous photo is deserving of more than a 5/10.. imo
Cute subject, but a bit too over processed for me. I think you saturated for the dramatic garment but the child's skin rendering took a hit.

The eyes are sharp and the DOF is nice. My only gripe is that the dog kinda blends into the background. May look better as a black and white since there are so many neutral colors in this shot. Also might darken the background to make the dog stand out more. 7/10.
