View Full Version : My puppy dog

Heres a picture of my 5 month old puppy, Shylyn. I was wondering if I could get some constructive critisism on it. Be easy though, I'm pretty new to photography and I'm still learning...:D

Heres the link to the picture.

Hi Nikki229,

I'd ask again if you could upload images directly as going back and forth between sites isn't that fun.

This is a decent shot of your dog. Things that you should be aware of for future shots are distractions like leashes. The pink leash in particular is a distraction. The bottom of the photo is a bit 'noisy'.

Hope that helps,

hi nikki - welcome & cute dog!
i agree with marko - the background of this shot leaves a lot to be desired. the dirt & grass don't do the dog justice. and the leash is a distraction. the dog also seems soft, not enough definition on the fur & around the edges. maybe its a focus issue, but otherwise im not sure how to correct it (im not all that experienced myself - lol)

Thank-you very much guys. I tried to upload the photos direct but it didn't work, maybe I'm not doing it right...the softness in the picture could be because the picture is cropped. I had the whole dog in the photo but I thought that anything otherwise then her face was irrelevent because she was just sitting there looking at me...lol
