    Went to Edaville in Carver, MA today. Got these:

    I think the secret to good people shots is getting people who are doing things.

    Anyway, here's what I think:
    #1 That white patch of blown out sky is too bright and draws the eye too much.

    #2 A narrower aperture may have helped. The drill is blurry.

    #3 Hey! That's not a people; it's a bear! Also it's a little grainy. I went too far with the sharpness slider, and it was shot at ISO 1600 on a Canon 300D.

    I disagree...I think good people shots have good eye contact and an uncluttered background with decent bokeh. That doesn't mean posed, it just means that the photographer took the time to pay attention to details and wanted to show the person and not what they are doing.

    As for your shots...they make great snapshots for a scrapbook of where you went and what you saw. =)

    I like them, but I would like to see the subject's face closer, and different angles.

    I think the content is interesting, but the angles and compositions could be improved; the images feel a little flat.
