    Love the pose and the vertical framing works very nicely. The blue is great as well.

    Alert pose is very nice, sharpness is crazy good, and eye contact is great. On the flip side, I wish I could see his tail as he looks a bit egg-like as is. Foliage behind is sufficiently blurred but a bit much for my super-minimal tastes. I think it will still work for most though.

    Work very well. Nice and Sharp.

    Crop works well but I would loosen it
