Thank you everyone for the generous comments. The head crop was straight from camera so there was little I could do. I used a 60 x 90 softbox as keylight, face on, 45 degrees 1.5 metres above him with a Bowens GM500 Espirit Gemini strobe at 2/3 power. Rufus is a 7 year old retired Grand Champion of his breed (Hungarian Vizsla) and it is almost impossible not to take a good image of him. Thank you once again.

So beautiful, John!

I feel like I could pet him/her... Love the DOF including all of the nose and the lighting is fabulous!

Fine, noble portrait. Nice depth of field. He or she looks serious -- such a sweet temperament to this breed.

Lighting is great. Could use a bit more headroom, I think.

Great portrait of a dog - the lighting works excellently on the chocolate brown. I would have liked just a bit more space above the dogs head - its just a bit too close to the edge of frame for my liking, but that's the only thing at all that I would change
