    The Bokeh effects are great.
    For the 2nd image,perhaps taking it at a more higher angle would be better.

    1 and 3 - excellent. 2 I think I'd have used a narrower aperture to get the hand in focus.

    Thank you guys... I'm still learning how to play with the settings on my camera. That'll be something that I work on. What about this pic?

    The first three images are a tiny bit overexposed and may have a white balance issue. I like the composition and the character of the shots. DOF in the first and third image is great.

    The last image is a tiny bit underexposed and may have a white balance issue. Watch the direction of the light. Composition is okay...this is the kind of shot where you should move from side to side while looking through the viewfinder to find the best composition for the shot...you want to place the subject so that the background works with the subject. In this shot you have those two white things behind the subject that are a little distracting.

    The first pic looks like it is out of a parenting magazine. Great exposures and composition. It kind of shows you what you can do with not a whole lot to work with. Good job. Your talent is a babe too!

    I like the 4th one the best, but I do agree with the little white lines behind the head being a little distracting

    I like them all. Great job. On the 4th, I wonder what it would look like if it was cropped in some.

    I see some improvement for sure. I still see some white balance issues. Also just a little focus issue in one and two. Number 4 is by far the strongest of the images although the hair on the right side of her face is a little distracting.

    Thanks for all of the feedback. I've booked sooo many photoshoots. I learn something new everytime. I think I'm about done doing it for free. Or if I do it for free, I'll only put them up on smug mug or something so they'll have to purchase the prints if they want them... anyway... off subject.

    Anyway, what's wrong with the white balance in the pictures and how would I go about fixing it. Thanks.

    I see a blue cast.

    My guess is that it was a partially overcast day. Looks like diffused direct sunlight.
    A lot of reflected light from the blue sky has influenced the overall white balance.
