Lovely photo, nice job. The variations in the hue of the dog's coat match nicely with the many colors of the fallen leaves, and contribute to the overall autumnal feel of the image. The detail is nice in the fur, and the wispy tufts on the ears, chest and tail show the slightest breeze and the dog's face being turned away from the camera makes it look like like a rather introspective, more artistic shot. Good faming of the scene, the heavy grey of the background being just the top third, and out of focus, just highlights the rich colors of grass, leaves and dog, and there is enough space below the subject at the bottom to keep it from looking cramped. The fact that it is slightly off-center is balanced by the direction the dog is looking, overall, great job.
