[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is my neighbors' beagle puppy, Malcolm, in one of his rare pensive moments. He is really goofy when he plays with my golden retriever, Grace. Malcolm likes to try to climb on top of her because she's so much bigger than he is. He also likes to chew on her fur. Grace is a super fluffy dog, so Malcolm comes away with dog hair stuck in his mouth.
This is one of the first pictures I took with my new D50. I must say that Malcolm is a challenging subject. He moves around so much that I usually ended up with just his tail in the picture. Sorry the focus isn't more sharp here. I was just happy to get good picture.
PP: I cropped into a square and added a frame.

Hi Sarah,

Nice title, he does look a little goofy and really cute :-)
Excellent portrait and you have chosen a good framing also.

Greetings, Nel

That is such a great picture! You captured the goofy innocence of the pup! Great Job!

Even if the focus isn't a 100%, it doesn't really retract anything from the image... my brother and I love beagles, but we never bought one because they are so hyper. :P Very cute little doggy, such a sweet little face. I think this image came out well... very nice portrait, of a sweet little animal. :) Good composition too.


Cute and funny.
I like the way it's ear flips over to the back.

V. nice.
