    I decided to shoot some black and white photos today and mess around with some color filters. These are a few shots out of about 20 I took this afternoon. All photos are ISO 1600, with natural lighting.C&C is appreciated.

    I like #3 the best, mostly because it's the only one in which I can see the eyes. #1 and #2 have nice sharpness, but the poses and the cropping don't work for me. What is the focal length of these shots?

    I see a lot of noise. But considering your ISO was at 1600 (and I'm guessing your camera can't take high ISO), that would explain it.

    The focal length is 38, 42, and 42mm. I could have gotten rid of the noise in Lightroom or photoshop, but I actually like it. I set the ISO at 1600, because it is very dark in my house (Houses in New England tend to have no overhead lighting) and I wanted to capture the movements of my nephew. Thanks for the criticisms guys, should I post uncropped images with post crop from now on so people could give cropping tips?
