    My daughter was wearing this tutu and I couldn't resist her little legs. Do you think any of these are keepers? I'm totally new to this and it's always interesting to hear what other photographers think. Maybe I am too intimate with my subject to look at it objectively. Any help will only allow me to get better. THanks so much.

    If you were able to throw that tire shot out of focus, I would definitely say its a keeper. A few, it seems the focus point kinda got away from you, but thats ok, practice makes perfect.

    For the last two, I'd probably make em black and whites.

    good job getting your child to say in one place enough to stay on subject.

    i think they're nice, generally.

    Thanks for your replies! I just recently started shooting on AI Focus, but am still slow at setting my own focal points. I was getting frustrated with using AI Servo or One Shot since it was often choosing points that I didn't want (and I suck at manual focus!). Since I only shoot kids, they move so quickly that I need a lot more practice setting my own focal points quick enough to catch the shot I want.

    I like your idea also of changing the last one to B&W. I think it will look nice and will try it.
     
  7. The last one is my favorite.

    The first needs toes (Baby legs are cute, but baby toes rock!)

    Thanks. I forgot about the rule of not cutting off a person at the wrists and ankles! I didn't even think about it until you mentioned it. I also LOVE baby toes! Here are a couple just because I have them....:)

    The third one cracked me up, but the last is nice. I love shots like this because they are the little things about your children that you would otherwise so easily forget. They will rarely be quite as meaningful to anyone else, but that doesn't matter much. Even with that, I think you've captured some cute shots.
