    So I'd like some C&C, be honest and if you want, you can edit, these or give advice on what I could have done or what I can do better. Also feel free to say which you like and why. If you have questions, feel free to ask. Thanks!

    First tip:

    It's really hard to get a good C&C when the images aren't a decent size. What looks good as basically a thumbnail might not look as great when it's bigger.

    I really can't give you honest C&C unless the pictures are larger.

    I picked #1, but it's hard to tell when they're the size of a postage stamp... ;)

    How do I upload correctly? If you click on my flickr link, you can see them larger.

    When you go to your flickr, click on the picture, click all sizes. Pick one (medium or large works).

    Copy the address down at the bottom (the box that says "Grab the photo's URL").

    Paste that inside the IMG tags.

    Much better! (I still pick #1.)


    Focus is off on #5. Probably the most important thing with people is that the eyes are sharp.

    Hmmm, I was going for the depth of field thing, but I see what you mean, what about the other photos?

    I like number 5, because the young lady has a pretty smile. The rest of the pics, the colors seem unreal to me. There are some "noise" in number 3.

    #1 is my favorite, the colors definitely seem to be notched up via post processing. I think #3 would look better as a B&W piece.

    #2 as a composition is un-interesting to me at least.

    Hmm, I can see what you mean about #3 and yes #2 didn't turn out as good as I wanted it to be.
