    I will pop a couple of shots I took over the weekend up here for some C&C - I have never showed my photos to anyone outside immediate family so this is a little scary for me, but honesty is best policy!

    I love the photos! im no proffesional but if I was to pick things out it would be this.

    1. the part of the trunk coming out of his ear (the girl is hanging on to) is distracting for me. and your logo is the first thing My eye went to. Maybe if you make it smaller.

    2. Would of like to see the eyes in focus more.

    3. My favorite one, again her face a little more focuse would of made it perfect!

    4. Another great shot, composition. Would of like to see a little more space to the direction she is looking

    Thanks so much! Also - I did mean to put this on the top one - please ignore the hideously oversized copyright - I put these on any pics I upload to flickr/facebook etc to stop family friends pinching my pics - this way they ask me first! I know it's distracting but it wouldn't be there for a paid shoot!!

    1- Great picture as is, but I'd love to see a closer zoom on the kids or a slight crop to remove some dead space over their heads. I like the use of the foreground grass, but there is only blade going over the boys face that I find distracting. Could just be personal taste though.
    Nice sharpness and colours too.

    2- The expression looks a bit forced. The best kid portraits are kids acting natural. Watch that overhead sun as its hitting his hat making the top part blown out (too white). Nice DOF. Again, I'm not liking the centered face in the frame.

    3- Lovely capture! This is a Hallmark moment :) . Great sharpness and DOF. I like how the light hits the back of her head, lighting her hair. I love how the tire is out of the frame, but would of loved to see that little part of the foot that is missing still in the frame.
    But really, thats just me. I love the picture though.

    4- Not really liking this one. Technically its nice, but again, the subject is too centered in the image, there is alot of dead space over her head. You did a great job with backgrounds in the other 3, but this one has a busier background, specially that bush or whatever in the back right over her head.

    You have alot of the technical parts of photography down...exposure, shutters and what not. Nice job all around. Keep working on the focus though

    Work on that composition though. Look into the rule of thirds, fill the frame with your subject and watch that dead space over their heads.

    You can also post up bigger pictures

    Looking forward to seeing more of your work!

    :lmao: What is the bumping all about? Who is bumping who? Thanks for what?!

    On to my thread... lol, I really appreciate the feedback - Thanks so much! I have never done any form of learning about photography, and don't even know where to begin - could I please have some advice on good references? I am seriously considering formal education, but in the mean time I would like to take the C & C and make it work for me - Does anyone know of any good books/references etc. that will assist me further with my own learning?
