    could use more contrast. Was the DoF in #2 created with photoshop?

    The pose in one is nice, but you need to bring in the blacks and soften it up a bit and the shin tones are too white - they need to be warmer. Way to harsh for an engagement photo. #2 I don't care for - their dirty shoe bottoms? I just don't know who would want that. It looks kind of yuck. Instead of their dirty shoes, how about a close up of their hands interlocked? Any way, hope I was helpful. Keep shooting!

    i'm gonna go out on a limb and say the couple is probably into their boots. plus they are in the back of a truck (see the bedliner), so it is probably something personal to them. plus, i think it is neat because it is out of the ordinary. good job!

    #1 though, i like it for an artistic image, but for an engagement photo, i have to agree with the others. it needs to be a little softer and warmer. i don't mind the desaturation and highlights, but they go just a hair to far.

    for a first shoot, though, i love you eye for composition. but you have to leave personal preference (the first image) to your own shots, and give something a little more traditional. though, you can easily get your touch in, just make sure you show a "normal" and yours.

    there is a local photographer in my area that does her own thing, but also provides the standard stuff. check her out: dixie pixel

    Thanks for the comments. Yes, their boots are quite important, and it is one of there favorite shots from the session.

    I am still playing around with the first shot. I have a couple versions, and I can totally see what you mean about the softness. Thanks for the feedback.
