This does look a little dark, but you did well with your focus and you got catchlights in both eyes. I bet you can process it and make it look good!
Thanks for the comments-- and you are right I should have gone up a bit more I think with the ISO and more DOF so that his eyes and ribbon would be more focused. I'll try again. Thanks for noticing the ribbon too -- You would be amazed at how long that took me!I am not good with doing puppy hair and his bangs are not quite long enough yet to catch them all.
Cathrob He is kinda cute isnt he? lol I do have to tell you he was a "surprise" to our family and we just didnt know how wonderful it would be to have little paws in the house again. He is 6 pounds now and full grown
I think it looks pretty good. Her little face is in focus, which is important, but I agree with Cathy that it would be nice if the ribbon was too. I don't really think it looks too dark. I like the composition, but if it bothers you, my suggestion would be to get more in the frame when you shoot and then crop it later to your preference.
First of all what a CUTE dog! Almost makes me want one lol.
In low light like that don't be afraid to go to at least ISO 800 it gives you more room to play with the other settings. I'm thinking a little more DOF would be nice. It looks like the end of her nose is what is in sharpest focus. From what I see posted here I think the goal is to get the eyes to be the sharpest point of focus and I'm thinking that if you had a wider DOF you could that cute ribbon in sharper focus as well. It doesn't seem too dark to me... I kinda like that. I also like you crop. Good job getting in nice and close. Good for you getting this up the first day too <img border='0' src='/graphics/mbicons/smilies_v2/thumbup.gif'>
