    Not a bad shot. Well lit, but it is a little disconcerting with the black on black. Kinda looks like their heads are floating in mid-air.

    Nice pose, pleasant expressions. The lighting is flat. You'll need more than the on-camera flash to move ahead in portraiture.

    I like the black on black. You've "keyed" the clothing with the background, keeping attention on your subjects' faces. Some light on the background will help with the separation problem.

    Good begining!

    I think they look really nice for what you were working with. i look forward to what you can produce once you aren't using the flash like that!

    The tree shot was taken in a field off the green at Hasland.

    Just the one on the right, saying that the other might as well be she spends more time at our house than she does at her own. They tell everyone they are twins.
