She is a twelve year old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, and Thank You, I think she's cute too, but I am biased of course.

Rodney, I happen to like the soft focus look on the dog. She is a beautiful dog with a sweet face. She's very photogenic!

Sometimes I think some people put too much emphasis on sharpness. This image has a classic black and white look that is very appealing.
Well done

I agree with Ira on this one. Strange coming from a self professed sharpness freak myself!!

My only suggestion might have been to have got the eyes in focus and left the rest of the face & fur soft. The eyes tend to draw attention in any portrait and would IMHO made this an even better image.

Rodney - what a great photo! Full of personality and excellent composition. I too like the softness of this photo, and your black & white work is quite clear and well done.
