Here are two shots I managed to take which I really liked while playing with a new flash + lens setup. Pity the mouthy one is a tas out of focus.

2nd one is superb! Although it has a bit more black around it than it should...

I thought the black space was needed for the emotion of loneliness to be shown, but my dad said this crop might work better, what do you think? - I think he may be right.

I think your cropped portrait looks better, and if you removed a wide strip of black in the "yawning" photo, you'd improve the composition. I like these photos. They capture the personality of the dog well.

Getting the crops right is something that seems to come up a fair bit with me, does anyone have links to any good reading material in regards to this?

The crop looks better, but I think just a little less would have been perfect. I hope to own this lens someday, it looks like a lot of fun.
