I guess I could spend some time tweaking it in PS but it seems not worth it for what is effectively a snapshot of a dog.

9/10, what's up with the background though? I can barely see the leaves.

This one took me a while in editing. Messed around with brightness.

Are you being srs? That's just the affect of having a low Depth of Field to put more focus on the subject, IMO it's very appealing. This is done by using an appature anywhere from >f/1.4-2.8 ish, this looks like an f/1.4. I'm sorry if you were joking but thought I'd input incase you wern't thumb.gif

It is called bokeh (it is "the blur, or the aesthetic quality of the blur, in out-of-focus areas of an image"). You are not supposed to see the leaves, just the smooth colors in the background. smile.gif

4/10 - That flash is very harsh.

3rd time trying this photo out, got rid of the distractions completely as mentioned previously.
