    These were from a non-paid shoot that I did last week. It was for practice, as I am not comfortable AT ALL with charging yet.

    I like your B&W shots the most. Good texture. The first colour one might miss a little bit of contrast? It is well composed, but need a little extra kick to it I beleive.

    good one

    The color ones seem a bit soft to me. A bump in contrast in saturation would be nice on those aswell. I love the black and white shots!

    I agree with the above comments. Also, it seems like the focus is a little off. Try using the unsharp mask in PS to see if that helps.

    ya...Ive been trying to fix the color ones. I dont know what happened. Ive boosted the saturation and contrast a LOT and they are still kinda BLAH...hmmm...I dont know. If anyone wants to play with them be my guest. :)

    I modified your first picture just a little, did I make it worst, better, no difference?

    Just learning here, I'm a real newbie but since you gave us permision I felt like giving it a shot.

    Adjusted the levels a tiny bit, sharpened the eyes with the sharpen tool (not much). Duplicated the layer, gaussian blur (40), set the blending options in the layers to overlay, then erased the eye section of the new layer.
