    Hey guys, I've never really shot 'people' before, I usually take pictures of birds and other various critters I see around my area,

    I had my camera with me when I was hanging out with some of my friends, and they asked me to take some quick photos of them.

    C&C very much appreciated
    Please be harsh, I have a ton to learn.

    also, I'll probably be shooting some more pics of these two tomorrow night, to test out my new flash. Any tips on nighttime portraiture? The other day I purchased an SB-600 flash and an SC-29 remote cord, so I figure I can get some neat light angles with that.

    C&C per req:

    1. Nice eye; not sure what you're trying to show here.

    2. While the picture is cute a 3/4 profile might have been even better. There's way too much distracting detail in the background. Look around and try and find plain, homogenous backgrounds. A monotone wall, hedge, etc.

    3. I'm afraid this image does nothing for me. It has a very distracting, complex background, and the smoke is downright unattractive. Additionally, it appears too warm, the original looks much more appropriate with respect to colour balanace.

    Just my $00.02 worth - your milage may vary.
