zombz,

Such a lovely picture. Wonderful interaction between the dog and your fiance. Radiating love

zombz,

We have a saying over here, full of humour, about smaller dogs.

- Such a small dog

- Yes, but it smells like a big

Size doesn't matter at all in the kingdom of dogs. A mini dog can rule an entire "dog kindergarden", both over the other dogs and the people working there

Yes, great, zombz,

thanks for posting this picture. The first thing that catches the attention is the dog's eyes. The dog is slightly sharper, as it should be. They are both beautiful. Take well care of them

If I isolate the dog in this portrait it's easy to think of Brittish 19th century hunting paintings as well as 17th century Dutch dog portraits

zombz,

Did you choose the focus point or did you autofocus? The first seems soft (not due to resizing). In the first pic though it seems there are parts of the dog that are sharper than the face so perhaps you just got a bad focus point. In the second the dog's face is sharper than hers. Looks like a depth-of-field issue. Go a little smaller on the aperture when you have two subjects that you want to both be in focus. Keep practicing. When I got my first prime that had no VR I had some soft pictures. You have to really concentrate on the basics of getting sharp photos.

Brad,

Good to know that there is someone around that knows it all. You must be very, very experienced
