I'm a big fan of "character portraits" and #1 really stands out as a "character" to me. It's got a candid feel to it and a perfect focus on the really intent eyes. The crop is strange, but it really works for me - keeps the eyes on the 1/3 line and even tho it's very "open" on top, the focus still comes back to the eyes. Cropping into a square by deleting the top is "OK" but takes a lot away from the shot.
This is a dog with an amazing expression!
Well, everybody made some great points. Cgardner in particular, made me think. However, I still LOVE this shot I am glad you are feeling it too
Just out of curiosity, would you keep the color? I felt the bandw emphasized the intensity of the eyes, and helped to off set the overexposure on his nose, but, the again, I love his color. Anyway, here is the color version: (I did drop the exposure a notch to eliminate the blown highlights)
