Lovely diagonal corner framing in this shot and a fantastic job of catching the loyalty and devotion of the dog towards its owner (which is clearly reciprocated) in just one eye

Great sharpness and the bokeh works well. I dont know if you have the expression in the States but in England we say that people begin to look like their pets and given this the comparison between the beard and the grey hairs on the muzzle made me smile

As Michelle mentioned I like the fact that this was a picture in its own right that included someone wearing glasses rather than a picture of glasses which someone happened to be wearing

Hmm well I was hoping it would have done better. I like that you have more than just a picture of someone wearing glasses (oh, like I did! hehe). There's a story here and that's what makes this an interesting photo.

A decent enough shot, but that huge expanse of empty space between the two subjects does not work for me. It breaks up the composition and it is where my eye wanders, looking for something that is not there.. A different perspective or crop may have appealed to me more.

Good composition - it's a pity the dog merges into the dark background.
