    #1 - add a bit warmth to the image :)
    #2 - I like selective focusing BUT a bit more more dof is needed- for all the viewer knows, it could be me in that picture. The whole idea is good and you still need to show who is standing there.
    #3 - blown out highlights :( I like to see definition in the sky
    #4 - #3+#1

    Overall - good composition, lighting and exposure. Above are just some minor modification I recommend for the future.

    good job, keep shooting :)

    Aside from needing a little fill flash, I think these look pretty good. [edit] maybe ^^isgment is right, a little warmth. But it IS cold outside LOL.

    I think #1 could be cropped real close and work well, if you want me to show you what I think, I can do that later. I love that you caught that wee bit of space between their noses.

    I love #3. Nice B&W.

    #4...I dunno, it reads as a banner Ad for a dating site, in my mind. Are portrait "panos" a new trend? Just seems like there is too mch dead space on the left. *shrugs*

    Will make a comparison here for emphasis. Your last photo in your first post left a large amount of space on the left for... ? And the one you just posted had a lot of space on the left but contains the main subject's flowing, wind-blown hair... which makes it essential. So if you aren't planning on putting text in the first one mentioned, you shouldn't be afraid to crop out the out-of-focus, already bottom-cropped tree. :) Both are wonderful shots, really.

    The cropping for the first photo was ideal. Great pose, great shot. Second photo, liked the concept but didn't like the DOF being that shallow.

    Very good work in capturing the couple's expressions. Shows emotion/mood quite well.

    Out of curiousity... why all of the very untraditional crops?

    One other thought, is that what I think most of these images could use is a bit more "pop".

    Example (it says your images are "ok" to edit)

    Not bad.
    I like that her face still has just a hint of blue cast to it.

    yeah, I didn't want to make her overly "warm", rather I just wanted to give her a bit of color
