What's not to love about a puppy photo. You nailed the focus and the composition is right on. His eyes draw the viewer in and his sad face is perfect. I also like the bits of flower or paper scattered about on the floor--makes me wonder if he did that or not. It adds a bit of whimsy to your shot. Just a note, the top left portion of the image looks a bit funky, not sure why. Perhaps a bit of cloning? Hope he is sleeping through the night!   Posted: 06/06/2020 10:19:38

Bruce. Thank you for the positive comment. Hard to screw up a puppy photo - but I did. I sent the wrong photo to Mike! This is the correct one   Posted: 06/06/2020 18:58:39

Ah, yes. Stuff happens when you get older. These things happen to me all the time. Nice shot.   Posted: 06/12/2020 20:39:25

You have caught a really good moment in his life. The expression could be read a number of ways to tell different stories. The cloning is noticeable, but only after looking into those wonderful eyes!   Posted: 06/06/2020 16:28:30

Adorable! The eyes have it! Perhaps a tight crop would bring this to another level. The upper left is distracting.   Posted: 06/12/2020 21:55:10

I too got a new puppy about a month ago. She is Josie and she is a Blue Heeler Mix. She is 5 months old. She is about 25 pounds now. Love her. This is a beautiful Puppy Mark. I saw the floor and one of the first things I thought of..... wouldn't the floor be a beautiful background. So, I tried it. I feel like the image is less distracting than the floor with the lines and the flowers.   Posted: 06/25/2020 11:43:29
