Nice shots. Why didn't you rotate the child photo anti-clockwise?

Hi Greg and that little girl is looking happy.

The shot of your dog is good but could be better.

When shooting a dog portrait never cut of the ears and try to center the subject off center. This one would benefit from a crop cutting more of the dogs body off on the right and some of the overall space.

One thing I use when I take shots of a dark dog with bright highlights on the face is to use AE-Lock. Have the camera in spot exposure then move the camera between the dark and light areas until you have a good balance then lock the exposure. If more adjustment is needed then adjust the exposure up or down with the normal exposure compensation adjust before shooting.
