There isn't a whole lot I can critique on this piece, as technically, it's stunning. Black and white works really well and you can see the emotion in the puppy's face which is usually hard to catch in such small animals. The depth of focus is where it matters the most -- the eyes, however it would have been good if you could extend that DOF to the nose upwards. The framing of the photo is excellent. The viewer's eye is drawn to the puppy's face without any distractions due to the tight frame at the edges.

The watermark, although sadly necessary, is a little too strong in my opinion. Dropping it down to 75% or even 50% of it's opacity would still make it readable, but not as noticeable. Also, the red text should have been in black and white too, to match the theme.

Overall, a very impressive photo. It's great to see that your photography skills keep improving in leaps and bounds. Your post-processing skills give your photos a wonderful edge and you possess so much knowledge of framing, composition and other photographic techniques. Good job!

*is goo* How could anyone let something like that just wander off. Beautiful little pup. I am glad he found a home.

I don't know. I'm thinking they actually dropped it off from a car.
I'm glad it found a home, too. The girl said that she lived out in the country, so it'll have PLENTY of room to run around. That made me happy.

I think he is. The girl was really nice and said that she lived in the country, so it would have plenty of running around space.
