would appreciate some perspective on my old friend Lou
This is my old friend Louie. Have had him for 11 years now after saving him from the pound. He's getting old and I regret never getting any good pictures of my greyhound before she passed, so I wanted some nice pics of Lou for the inevitable day that he leaves our family. I took this today and am happy enough with it that I might want to frame it. But you know how it is when you stare at an image for too long...you lose perspective. I wanted to ask if anyone sees any big flaws or has any processing ideas. Or is it total crap and I should go do a reshoot? Thanks!

great job getting the focus on the eyes on not on the nose! And not centering it right in the middle of the frame.So Much To Learn....

I agree. I love how the eyes came out, and everything else has just the right amount of blur, in my opinion.

Thanks for the input guys, I decided to go ahead and get a canvas made of it. I'll let you know how it turns outHaving fun with my Canon 6D, Sigma 35mm 1.4, Canon 135mm f/2L and my pride and joy; the Canon 100mm 2.8L Macro !

Fantastic shot, the focus is where it needs to be, great composition."Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away" - author unknown

Thanks guys. I ended up getting a 12 x 18 canvas printed and stretched by a local professional lab, and it came out so beautiful! Will be pretty up on my wall and also a great way to remember my furry buddy long after he's gone (which hopefully will still be a few years from now)Having fun with my Canon 6D, Sigma 35mm 1.4, Canon 135mm f/2L and my pride and joy; the Canon 100mm 2.8L Macro !
