    You don't need a pro camera to take good shots, just practice.

    I think you managed to get good exposures even with the direct sunlight, which can be tough. I would recommend shooting at their eye level, like in the first one, and using a longer lens (more telephoto) when shooting portraits.

    you should be careful with shaows.... it is good to use fill flash in sunlight to reduce shadows under the nose or eyes...

    I think the first one could use some brightness or whiter whites or something because it's looking flat to me. I actually really like #2. It reminds me of a still from a movie or something.

    I agree with the whiter whites, I fixed it in my copy already. Thanks!

    I prefer the first one, actually. The second one rubs me the wrong way; I guess I can't get past the rule to crouch down so you're not looking down on kids.
    I don't use b&w, so it's intresting that I like it better than #3.

    #1 & #3 are nice, but I agree with the use of fill flash to reduce the shadows on their face.

    #2 Rocks, I like the pose and the angle you used.

    The third one just looks like a point and shoot photograph, but I like the first two. Try using PS to increase the contrast in the two, especially one. I'm a fan of fun cropping so cool.
