Great portrait, lighting works great and dog is perfect.

The D800 and 1.4D make a wonderful couple.

Where have you been hiding that one Vidau? It stunning. You'll be pulling rabbits out of a hat next.

Like another poster pointed out, it's technically perfect, to my eye anyway. I can't think of one single negative thing to say about it.

Good jobĀ

Nicely done as the lighting doesn't looked forced and the expression is interesting...so shared credit for you and the model!

Very cool! The 85D is one awesome lens. I already have the 85G but still want a D version.

The little fellow gets some credit for being so cute

And okay, this is top notch work. Lighting, expression of the child, etc.

Composition wise the picture is not the best to my very personal taste because it is too centered: the point mid way between the eye is very close to the center of the image. This is how we trend by instinct to compose a portrait but often mis-centering works better for my own eyes. I would like the image even better with barely any background to the top and just a little to the left (viewer's left) leaving some space behind the child.

But that's nit picking on my part and your customers I'm sure must have been elated with the picture. I would.
