Linda, these are excellent. I just love #1. What a great portrait of Ruger. Well done.

I love the first shot Linda, very nice. I find the second shot awkward. It appears that his head is growing out of some blob lol. I know it isn't, but it just doesn't look right. I think you were down low, and he was laying down? Regardless, they are great shots, and Ruger is a beautiful dog.

I like these Linda! I really enjoy quality portraits of beloved animals. You might have cropped #1 (in camera) horizontally. That would give him some space to "look into." This would've been a 10"x8":
Maybe with even a bit more space over his head. Just some thoughts.

I did crop him a bit tight. I can re-crop. I have the original pic. I'm currently doing a 50mm prime challenge on another forum, it's been quite challenging so far and it goes on all month long ;)
Brad, I see what you are saying. LOL. It wasn't my favorite pose either, but I did like the light on the second one, it's a little bit softer than the bright light/shadow on the first picture.
Thanks Monnie. I love this dog :)

These are wonderful, Linda!! The second is my favorite, although I see what Brad is saying. Maybe do an oval crop? And I also agree with Bruce on the first one.
