|Not much to say about this one. This is my grandmother's dog. A very very sweet, lovable companion (I love dogs) although she is a bit hyperactive. It was almost impossible to get her to sit still for this shot.|

Hi Vincent - firstly, welcome to Treklens - I hope you enjoy this site and learn a few things from it :-)
As to this shot, my thoughts are that it could do with some improving. For children and animals it usually works better if you shoot from their level - dont be afraid to crouch down. use this shot as just one example and compare it to your own http://www.treklens.com/viewphotos.php?l=3&p=577851
Also, watch for shadows - the dog seems to be sitting in the line of a shadow of a pole, perhaps? And his eyes are in line with the verge of the grass...it makes uncomfortable viewing. On the composition, it is often best to decentralise your main subject, a google on "rule of thirds" should help on that aspect.
A tighter crop, a lower point of view and watch out for background distractions :-)
Anyway, welcome again
Fine dog. Very fine scene. Sophisticated colors. Intersting take.
