Hi J P Sahu, My general impression is good, you caught a very nice moment of backyard nature, but it seems you relied a bit to much on your camera. This could have been a much greater image. Anyway you have a nice thing going for you and you should continue at it! Can't wait to see you next shot :) Cheeres

Subject

Very nice subject! Interaction between a domesticated animal with a wild one where the wild one is in obvious disadvantage. The bird seems to be a recently born and perhaps that is why it couldn't fly... it had fallen to early from the nest.

Composition
& perspective
Composition is good. It has a comfortable amount of breading space all around and we can still see foam from your dogs mouth and a tooth.
9/10
Use of camera,
exposure
& speed
You haven't given a complete recollection of what you did in camera, but I can imagine it was all done in automatic. The camera never knows what's needed. You have a reasonable representation of the highlights but the shadows are poor.
7/10
Depth
of field
It might have work better if you had less depth of field since your objective was to isolate the situation.
9/10
Color &
Lighting
Colour temperature is a bit off and the lighting is average although it works for the subject.

Focus
Exactly on the bird's eye where it should be.

How to improve your photo
1.
First of all, if you wish to start doing some serious photography, you must do it all manually so you get involved and understand what's really happening in camera.
2.
My second advice is to shoot it all in RAW so you can process you images adequately. It's not just about colour temperature as some of the "pros" say... shooting RAW gives you much more control on the outcome of what you do and you can get much more quality from each shot. It's hard to do properly so you should start at it as soon as possible.
3.
If you look carefully into the tooth of your dog you'll see that it has a green-blue tint and this is all over the image. Something you can easily correct tweaking the colour temperature. Try playing around with it till you see a more pleasing overall colour.
