    Cute boys! Love the engineers outfit :)

    Watch your lighting as the shadows are very distracting behind their ears.

    These could use some PP lovin', too. White balance seems a bit wonky.

    AWWW! CUTIES!

    Maybe it's just me... but the shots are not very sharp/crisp?

    And somewhat overexposed or just a little hot for me.

    Thanks for the comments! I really didn't have much time to get the lighting adjusted during the shoot. I only had about 15 minutes before these two were done sitting still. They are a little hot. I need to tone it down a little bit...

    They seemed slightly out of focus to me? Am I the only that sees that?

    On the shots with both boys, focused on the older boys face. When they were apart, I focused on their faces. Also there was no sharpening done in PP. Maybe I should have....

    I think some slight sharpening will make them look a whole lot better.

    Cute kids, but the shadows are too sharp. I the love the costumes though.

    The kids are cute, and the outfits are great. The first thing I thought, especially looking at the first couple shots, was "get closer to the subject." There's a fair amount of wasted space at the top and/or sides of the frame.

    Looks more like direct flash to me, check your lighting ratios :)
