Love this little pic of this cute little Dachy.
Great sharp eyes and face.
I am thinking that, since he/she is looking off into that direction you could (maybe) improve the image by placing the dog more to the right of frame which would have included the shaddow.
But do you like it how it is?
Not sure I'm really qualified to offer C&C, but you've got to start somewhere.
When you get a reaction out of people like this you are on the right track, Mel. I remember reading somewhere if an image makes a person laugh, cry or wince then it is a good image.It made me smile the moment I saw it,
I love it too. I know you were trying to go for keeping the eyes and face sharp and in focus, I'm just curious what image one would have if the front paws were in focus as well. I only say that because to me they look like they are on the same plane as his face, but I like what you have done with this one as is.
