This picture of my dog was taken at my front yard. I placed his head on the top right crosshair in the rule of thirds to show the space in the direction the dog is looking at. Since the dog is looking at something outside of the frame to the left, there is active space in front of him to look into to interest the viewer more of the picture. This photo also has a shallow depth of field. I moved in really close to my subject and focused on details of the face so more of the background was out of focus.
