The shots were primarily experimenting with my new Sigma 70-200 f2/8 zoom. So you're going to see some unorthodox numbers. But please review and let me know what variables might have helped me get a better shot. All shots were hand held. Most taken in the morning with the exception of the yawning dog. That was taken approximately 7:00 pm.

My apologies for missing the "1 pic per critique". Just pick one to critique if it makes it easier. I'm just eager to improve my technique.

Nice shots

I picked the bug shot. Just mainly pp techniques. Maybe boost the mid tones and saturation and unsharp mask works a treat on bug shots. Hope you dont mind, see my quick edit below
