Greetings from the Criticque Club!

Initial impression: 1-2-3-Awwwwwwww....very cute picture of a very lucky dog.

Technical: comp is a little centred which probably cost you in terms of score. The slightly oof foreground works well, helps draw the eye in. I think the creases in the quilt over her come across as a tiny bit heavy, there is nothing similar underneath to help balance it out. Some glare on the quilt, the bane of shooting anything white. ISO is quite high, 400 or even 200 may have done the job esp at 1/50.

Artistic: I like this shot because it has a spontaneous feel, and who knows when the subject will wake up and decide they want out of the shot?

Overall: Quite a nice shot, very peaceful, and you got a decent score. A little hit with fill flash or shadows/highlights may have taken out some of the dark areas in the quilt. And FWIW I was told long ago that it was best to resize once everything else had been done - THEN unsharp mask. Doesn't seem to hurt.

Feel free to PM me with any questions,
