    #1 is pretty good (good focus and decent background blur, though pity you clipped his ear off), #2 has white balance and compositional issues. #3 and #4 are stupid and shouldn't be posted for c&c.

    wow, first time i have seen ppl be such sourpusses. why does it have to be serious to be good? was santa not good to you this year?

    so you dont like the expressions, what about the technical aspect of the shots? like focus and such. i couldnt get out today to take "serious" shots and was trying to make the on camera flash work better till i get the sb600. forgive me. i think its people like you guys who cause new people to shy away from the forums and posting their shots for c&c

    thanks zeto

    OK then technical aspects of the shots, aside from 1 and 2 which I already gave you.

    #3 - Distracting background, obviously no thought put into composition or location. Subject is too centered. Focus appears to be okay, but since you're supposed to focus on the eyes and you can't see them its kinda hard to tell.

    #4 Pretty much same as #3. Focus looks good.

    Those photos are what you call snapshots. Generally, you take them and look at them and go 'oh cool funny expressions' and don't post them on the internet asking for pointers on compositional technique and photographic merit, because clearly you didn't think about these things before you took the photo.

    Also, don't get offended when you ask for c&c or you'll most likely find yourself depressed and not wanting to come back.
