This little bugger was a tough shot to get believe it or not!

I hope this one does well :)

Greetings from the Critique Club!

That's certainly a cute subject (and puppies don't hold still, so I certainly believe it was a tough shot). This type of photo usually works best in a vertical format, but I do think horizontal was the right choice here. It helps to balance the energy that exudes from the subject. The bokeh is good here, and complements the subject well. Focus seems just a bit off, but I can't tell if the focus is just in the wrong spot (subject moved after focus lock but before shutter activation), the depth of field is too shallow, or it's caused by the subtle compression artifacts. Sharpening helps a little, but also brings out the jpeg artifacts.

Puppy! Very cute shot. The bokeh here isn't very strong though. You have a very effective shallow DOF shot. But there's not a feeling of the OOF parts either being part of the feel of the image, or enhancing the image. That's a critical part of what bokeh is.

The little guy is still cute as a button. Congrats on your new little model. Pets are a blast to shoot.

I'm going to be really upset if anyone gives this less than a 7. Excellent contrast, composition, and lighing. 10

Very cute dog, but I must (yet again) say that it doesn't fit the challenge. The bokeh does nothing special for the shot, and could be whatever it wanted to be.

so cute

Adorable puppy, cute pic, sense of bokeh int he far BG, but the birdbath (?) separates the bokeh from the subject and makes it less effectiuve as a relationship between the 2 layers, which is what I am looking for.
