Critique Lucy @ 3 years (almost 4)

Haven't done one of these in a while and in the spirit of the westminster dog show (maybe next year, Lucy!)... I Decided to get my old $100 camera out and try to self-stack Lucy. It's really not easy to get this dog to sit still after attempting a stack, but I tried my best.

She'll be 4 years old in about a month, 24" and a solid 72 pounds.





And here's a shot from the front from another day...

Is there someone that could help you stack and someone to take the picture? The reason I ask is that in the first couple of pictures, her ears are to the side, she's looking for you off to the side and it makes her neck look short. If you were in front of her and had her focus and attention, her head would pop up with her neck held alert and ears facing forward which would make her look stronger.

Nice expression, good muscle, she's certainly a solid girl, front paws look east/west a bit in one of those (someone stacking her could get rid of this and make your girl look stronger). She has a feminine face, do you have a good full-on face shot? Can't make out her face coloring so well with these shots

Nice girl

Can't critique her because the photos aren't fair to the dog.
As stated need more of a side shot with head up and ears forward.
Don't use a flash because it makes her look more washed out.
The front shot shows her head and coloring better.

Can't critique, but try not to overstretch her so much. Try to get her back hock perpendicular to the ground. (When you crop it, it should be parallel to the edge of the pic).

ehhh... I tried. I guess stacking isn't a one man job... lol.

I'll give it a shot again when I can get some help and some better outdoor lighting.
