    4. I had messed up the shot of both kids on the log but loved the expression of the little boy so cropped it down to this:

    Of course you can use the lollipop idea! It was actually my wife's idea ;-) These are cousins and the moms are really excited to see how they came out.

    Here's the B&W version of #3. Which one do you think is better?

    Blue Filter: (effective for those blue eyes... not so great for skin tone)

    Pretty cool what you can do when converting to b&w I think. Could mix the two and get a cool result..:

    I like your original color version the most though.

    I love the first black and white without a filter, although the blue filter really makes his eyes look great!!

    I'm really a noob myself, but I do have a comment:
    in the 1st pic, the cropping is kinda tight and the kid's heads are dangerously close to the top of the frame. In the one of the boy that was converted to black and white, his arm is cut off a bit and I find it distracting.
    Otherwise, such a cute idea - and the colors are great!

    You're right. The cropping in those two picutres is distracting. At the beginning of the shoot I was shooting with my 70-200 and found it too hard to get a nice even composition. That's what happened in the 1st one. Halfway through I switched to the 24-70 which was easier to leave ample room for me to work with in post. The one with the little boy was just a bad timing. I'm learning it's much more difficult to get the composition I want when dealing with little kids. I was adjusting my camera and all of a sudden he popped his head above the log and stuck his tongue out lol.

    Thanks for the comments and critiques. It's things I'm aware of but hearing it from others firms up my beliefs on what I need to continue to work on.

    Cute idea well done! I agree that cropping is excessive but good shots!

    I like them all, the one with the lollipops would be pretty cool with selective coloring
