    This is a friend who I've been working on portraits for since her pregnancy. The little girl is four months old now.

    Any feedback is appreciated. Lighting, composition, pp?

    Both are nice shots, great lighting and exposure. On the first one I might try getting a little lower on your part, and clone or crop out some more of that pole on the right.

    Nice work.

    the second one is awe some, very sharp and the backround is blurr. On the fist one, the background is very busy with all sort of different color and shapes, in my opinion, I would have chose another spot. As for lighting, I think both of them are pretty good.

    #1 could be better - neither is looking our way, background is way busy, not really much to fixate on - tho you did nail the rule of thirds.

    #2 is better tho static - everything is smack in the center tho i do like the expression and focus and color.

    Keep improving :)
