A happy accident really. I though he would be too close or moving too fast to be in focus. He turned out pretty good though. :-)

I think that this needs a bit of post-processing. It looks very washed-out. I would also prefer to see a bit more space in front of the nose.

The light really doesn't do anything for this shot IMO. If it were more behind the dog's face and giving him/her a halo but the face was in focus I think that would have the effect you were hoping for.

Beautiful dog but glare from light is really a detraction.

Nice closeup. Composition and DOF is nice and the use of backlighting works well.

It's clear you love your dog. He/she is a cutie by the looks of it. I personally find the sunlight and its effect on the image distracting.

The light is almost too distracting, but still a good picture

Nice photo, but I don't know that the lens flare improves it... was it intentional?

the tenderness is the eyes comes through..I am not sure the concept quite works, perhaps the light overpowers your dog a bit much( maybe using the burn tool to enhance the eyes a bit)..still an interesting and creative idea..

There are times where sunflares really add to a photo. I"m afraid this isn't one of them. In this case, it just makes everything look washed out :-(

Like the full frame, softness and rays falling from above. Nice study and good luck.
