    This are really nice images. You have a good sense of balance when shooting and capture your children naturally and unencumbered..Bravo! 4.5 Stars..If I gave you 5 it may go to your head and you may end up with my comportment, and that is something you wouldn't want, would you?

    PS..I love your sense of balance and that totally breaks the 1/3rd-2/3rd STUPID unwritten rule, that shouldn't have ever been established as a barometer for a "Good Photo" in the first place.

    Shoot from the GUT!

    The photos are amazing the only thing i noticed was that your daughters hair disappears into the sky in the first one.

    But saying that they are a million times better than anything i have done.

    I think you have a good eye. I like your composition, I like the exposure. Some may say they are slightly overexposed, but I like the feel they have. To pick a favorite, deffinately #3. Love it. then #2 and all the rest are fine. You used available light with all these but #4, correct?

    Well, I was really impressed with that one, for the lighting. So I checked your EXIF info on all of them. :p You did a nice job. you knew when to flash, and how much.

    Two things I'd like to note. First, in years to comes, your daughter will be appreciative of your use of the healing brush.... particularly the spot between the eyebrows and her right leg. Surely these marks will be long gone before too long. Also, I do think these are slightly overexposed, but not in a bad way. I like to overexpose and bring it back down in post. Another thing, even if you do like the exposure as is, I think defining a black point will greatly help .

    I took some liberty with #5. You say OK to edit. All I did was to define the black point, slight crop, healing brush above the eyebrow and cloned out the weed on the top part of the hat. I'm not fond of the one running on her lower body either and before long you will be observant of these small, but crucial details, and figure out out how to avoid before the shutter is released.

    It seems Photobucket lost the detail that was left in the hat. :(

    Hope you don't mind.

    Aye, in your edit, you lost enough deatil that you can't easily recognize the hat, as a hat.

    Although the copy on my HD is darkened slightly, details in the hat are quite distinguishable. Friggin' Photobucket compression.

    Anyway, it was an excersize in bringing down the exposure slightly. 30 seconds worth.
