I shot this today handheld with a 17-55IS. 42mm at f2.8, ISO 400, and 1/125 sec. What do you guys think of this shot? The noise is bugging me but I can be overly critical of my own stuff. What could have been better with this shot?

Gread pose, he looks very 'proud', if i would change anything i would have shot from about a foot higher to get a bit of definition on the nose/mouth, still looks great tho :D

Great capture but he does have a look of direct flash about him, probably because of the dark b/g which makes the image look under exposed. If the noise is bugging you do a rough mask on the dog and blitz the rest with NR or surface blur.

That is either one proud puppy or one tired puppy. Either way, it's a great pose. I laughed out loud when I saw it....nice job. Color, clarity, light, framing are all good.

Hahaha! That is in some way, as I might see it anyhow, a very arogant look ..
I love it !!! I wouldn'tve cropped his right paw out of the frame tho ..
I like Capri's suggestion of another foot higher, I didn't see that til it was mentioned.
Nevertheless, oustanding image of cuuuute puppy!

Actually I didn't use a flash. The only light was from a 9 foot picture window about 8 feet behind me.

You got the light in the eyes which is the most important thing to do with a dog; that's were the life is. One nit would be the tip of the paw being cut off, but it's a great capture.

Here is another one from the series where her paw isn't clipped. I had a bunch of shots from a little higher perspective using and old 50mm 1.8 but my copy of that lens is utter garbage. All the images were really soft. The only PP I did on this shot was a slight Unsharpen Mask.

Great pic and great use of light, background bugs me, more than the noise. Adorable pup!

I can see the frames in the background is a little distracting but this does need to go on the wall.

Lovely looking dog, nice shot great catchlight in eyes. My only nitpick is would like to see the frames in background vertical.

Cheers

Matt

I received my new printer today so I decided to print these out and see how they came out. I was horrified. These images printed out unbelievably dark. I was reading the post processing forum about dark printing and most of the stuff I ran across said generally people have their monitors too bright.

Do these images look good on a properly calibrate monitor or are they too dark? It might also be my paper settings. Im using Ilford Pearl. There is no ICC profile for my Epson Artisan 710 so I was using the Premium Photo Paper Glossy setting. Any suggestions are welcome.
