First set of photos with my new Nikon D40! My pug Jaxson was not nearly as excited about it as I was. Although I have been lurking here for months, this is my first submission. Comments aimed at helping me improve are greatly appreciated.

Looks a TINY bit blurry, but a very nice, cute shot! I love the puppy's expression!

Pity about the nose not being in focus. Otherwise a decent shot

4 - Not sure the b&w has enhanced this image. Also the focus seems slightly off. The reflection in the eye(s) make this a little 'odd' in my opinion. Composition is nice, as is the capture/pose.

DOF is bothering me a little; the couch/chair/whatever on the bottom left is in sharper focus than the nose/mouth.
