    Very interesting lighting in the second picture and good colors, too!
    Makes me wonder where the light came from... hm.... care to 'enlighten' me?

    The other shots are nice, but 3 and 4 seem kind of flat. The first pic is quite good, though it works a little better to not turn a males chest that far away from the camera. Having an almost 90° chest-turn away from the camera creates a rather female pose, IMO. Male shoulders work better if you can still see both of them from an almost-front perspective, like in the 4th pic. Just my opinion, of course.

    But I keep looking back at the second shot. There's something about it.

    For the second one the sun was setting and reflecting off an extremely bright and reflective window, the one that looks blown out above his head in the tree. The light bounced right against him creating a great back light for a minute. Then I darkened the imaged in ps and dodged him and a little bit around
