First Impressions: Very noble....


Composition: Composition is pretty strong on this shot. However, I think I'd like a bit more free space below his chin.

Subject: Subject is very noble and majestic when cast in this light. And that coming from someone who's very pro-Cat/anti-Dog. There is almost a weary aged look there as well. Like he's tired but at the same time comfortable with his responsibility in life.

Technical (Colour, focus, and light): This is where I have to knock you a bit. The sharpness is just lacking a bit here. Focus seems somewhat off and blurry, I'd attribute this to you're using a f/2.5 aperature creating a very shallow depth of field.


To improve?: Raise it up to like 5.6 or higher and you're gain some sharpness and a deeper depth of field.

Summary: Nice shot, room for improvement...and a seemingly very nice dog. And that from a cat lover!


It is my hope that these insights are helpful, and constructive. If you have any questions regarding this critique, please feel free to PM me. Also feel free to PM me with any feedback on this critique. And please remember to mark it "Helpful" if you found it so.
