    ...trying my hand at taking candid shots of the family. I was trying to convey the atmosphere in each picture but wasn't sure if I was able to do that successfully or not since I'm biased towards the subject matter :) Any comments would be welcome as I'm interested to see if these are, in fact, only good pictures in my eyes or, if I did alright.

    Thanks friends!

    I love the first three. For me you capture the mood and the atmosphere perfectly!

    I find the writing in the borders (in general) very distracting though ... but I understand why it's there! For me, less is more in that respect.

    i like the way the lady on #3 in the background seems to be keeping a watchful over the proceedings

    Oh, they're all very good - good emotional captures. And good exposure and framing also... very nice...

    I think taking family photos are the hardest of all.

    Very nice job!

    Thanks everyone! I'm happy to hear that these turned out alright - there is always the fear of them looking like snapshots to everyone else when I find them to be special.....cuz of the subject matter.

    #1 and #3 really capture the moment. I, too, love how the older woman in #3 is centered but just watchful. And I love the movement in their hands, it gives action to their cooking, it makes it feel more real to me.
