In terms of natural reaction, the dog's eye is bothersome!
It appears unnatural, as the dog is looking at something else.
Just an observation!

So, I know it has been a whole year since you have created this image out of your minds eye, but I have to say that as an amature photographer, this image has been the most inspiring, and etched in my mind so vividly, that it made you be a mentor to me. It is so creative and amazingly beautiful. There is a beautiful girl that I have asking to model for me since I have seen it, that I am so inspired to photograph, and it is because of this image. It is a huge move for me, because I never wanted to shoot people before then. This summer I invested in a 70-200. It is an amazing lens, and this summer was my first experience of shooting women. Love it! Keep inspiring us, love your work and how you can take the same model and give her so many diverse looks. : ) VS

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken at a reservoir in Aurora, Colorado in the fall of 2014.
Time
The photo was taken in late afternoon around the golden hour before sunset. I planned this shoot the day before but unfortunately by the time we arrived to the location, the sun decided to set faster than I had anticipated. My window was a mere ten minutes of shooting.
Lighting
I wanted this image to have a whimsical-fairy tale look. I hoped for more sun rays through the trees but I managed to add more rays using Photoshop. I also used a fill light through a flash on the Camera.
Equipment
Camera body: Canon 5D MkIII Lens: EF 70-200 2.8 ISII Hand held fill flash on the camera body.
Inspiration
I am always in the look for potential spots to take photos no matter what I am doing. While walking my dog the day before , I fell in love with the location and the idea came to me. It was quite challenging having a dog pose, but I managed to capture a great moment while the dog was interacting with the model.
Editing
I did some color adjustment in Adobe CS6 to enhance the autumn effect.
In my camera bag
I keep the Camera body (of course) and 2 lenses; a 70-200mm 2.8 ISII and a 16-35mm 2.8 ISII. I also keep a flash (Yongnuo YN 560 III).
Feedback
You might need a professional model who knows how to do her makeup and dress according to the theme. I was lucky that Katia (the model in the photo) had a dress that matched what I was looking for. You also need a cooperative dog and an assistant who is helping with the dog. It was a hassle controlling Akuma (my dog in the photo) by myself with all the squirrels and rabbits running around. To get such shallow DOF you will need a focal length between 85-200 at the wide aperture ( F/1.2-2.8). This photo was taken at 200mm and F/2.8 (fully zoomed and wide open).
