Heh, I get the expression in #4 from my 6 month old pup every time I try to take a picture of him. You have a beautiful dog though!

The subject is mostly out of focus in all of them. They look underexposed and the color cast is distracting. Composition wise #4 is the only one that might transcend snapshot territory if you could frame without the table legs.

Sorry, but the purple fringing is too distracting in three of the shots.

I wouldn't be surprised if the purple fringing was no more than the TV reflecting on the subject.

Lots of head room on your portrait orientation shots. Pretty dog.

You obviously have a willing subject who will work tirelessly for a little affection and an occasional treat. All you have to do is provide the best lighting and setting. A cluttered background, and uncontroled stray light, are distractions you should avoid. If you control those elements you can then concentrate on the subject to catch those 'moments' you want to record.

A very quick edit to show you the white balance difference .

Thanks for the response everyone.

Just to let you all know, these photos were taken on Super Bowl Sunday during the game over a commercial break. So I couldn't really play with lighting or shut the TV off or anything of the sort.

I completely agree that the white balance is off. It pisses me off because it's my POS Toshiba laptop that I don't have connected to my external monitor. I quickly edited the photos and posted them up. I can def work on that.
This dog is awesome, but unfortunately, not very cooperative. Anytime I moved, he moved. I was lucky to snap those 2 shots of him laying there. Also, unless you have a treat as indicated, he won't really stay where he is. He's constantly moving and jumping around and wants to play non-stop.

He's not all in focus because I was shooting at f/2.5. My focus point was the area on or around his eyes. I'm still getting used to the DOF associated with FF sensors. I could shoot stopped down, but I'd also lose shutter and would have to bump ISO up more.

I can't wait for more opportunities to shoot!
