Hi

This is my Sister in Laws dog. A West Highland White Terrier. Her name is Brodie I took this photo as I had taken a photo of our Cat on this box just before Christmas which worked out ok. I was hoping it was not a fluke and I could manage to do it again.

All/any feedback/critique good or bad is most welcomed.

Gaz

Thanks Cameron. Yes looks can be deceiving Joking aside she is pretty good to be fair. I hope to take some more of her.

Nice shot of a cute dog.

But, as an old client of mine would have said, what are we selling here?
Your subject occupies - I guesstimate - maybe 15 percent of the image. Why not move in and sell the dog? (I don't mean that literally.)

Thank you kind sir I understand your feedback regarding not getting in closer and just focusing on a great portrait. I usually just take the portraits but was trying to do something a bit different whilst also trying to use a paper seamless background that I had bought.
Great to know thoughts on what works and doesn't.
