    Took Mich out for some play time in the snow. He had a great
    time.

    I know the background isn't that great, but any comments about
    subject placement, framing, layout and exposure would be
    useful.

    Take Care,
    Dudley

    I think you have to be careful in composing or cropping to not have
    part of the your primary subject cut off at the edge. Not that you
    can't do it, but you have to careful about how *much*. In this case,
    just the tip of the dog's ear is cut off. Best is to have nothing cut
    off, next best is to have more than the tip cut off.

    RichA, in one of his more idiotic statements, made some comment about
    shooting too wide and losing the subject. This is an example of why
    shooting just a little wider than you think you might need is the way
    to go.

    I don't know if you work in post, but I'd clone out the tree and house
    top...especially the tree.

    The general composition is good with space to the left and a good
    diagonal running left to right and right through the dog's nose. I
    like elements like that in a photo.

    Thanks, Tony, I appreciate your comments.

    I don't do any cloning in post. My Adobe expertise extends
    only to mods that apply to the entire pic, although that could
    change soon.

    I took this pic trying to get the layout as I was envisioning
    it, and it sounds like I got it a wee bit too close. (I agree
    with what you stated about the ear.)

    The easiest way for me to fix is to reshoot, but to move back
    ever so slightly.

    I'll try again, tomorrow.

    Take Care,
    Dudley

    You mentioned that possibility a while ago. Good to hear that it's still
    a possibility.
