I've just upgraded from a sony dsc-v1 to a Nikon D-50 - still getting used to using manual mode. Anyway, let me know what you think/suggestions etc.

What a lovely Golden! I thought the first one was a bit dark. Depending on what photo manipulation program you use, you should be able to adjust the levels to improve it quite a bit. This is a quick adjustment - if you don't like it let me know andI'll remove it. I thought that it looked more natural this way (or it could be because this matches how I remember my own Golden, who passed away several years ago).

P.S. You could probably adjust it more than I did - not sure I hit it right now that I look at it on the screen here.

He certainly is and loves having his pictures taken! I agree with making it a little bit lighter - it was f5.6 and 1/60 which was probably not quite long enough given how close I was.

Thanks for the suggestions.

The first picture what I see is that his nose is where the focus is falling I think I would personally rather have the focus fall on his eyes but that's just my opinion. The 2nd picture is much better

Yes - I think that I should perhaps gone for a greater DOF for the first shot. I'm still waiting to get outside with the new camera but so far the weather has been most unfavourable! Thanks for the help anyway.
