    Well, it has been quite some time since I posted here, I can't even remember when the last time was - life has gotten so insanely busy that I barely have time to breathe.

    I did manage to sneak out one weekend and take some portraits. These are for a friend who is trying to sell his t-shirt designs. (I have other shots that show more of the design.) He is going to post these on his website.

    I'm just mostly looking for a critique on the post processing. I was happy with it, but now all of a sudden I looked at the shots again and they look too saturated, a little too dark maybe? Just wondering what they look like to others, and any tips/feedback would be appreciated.

    Basically for the most part I just adjusted levels, curves, and did a little USM. It was hard to eliminate the gray haze but to still try to retain some detail in the black t-shirts.

    These aren't all the best shots, just ones that I am finished with PP with and wanted to use as examples so you can see what they look like.

    I like the place where you did that. Great emotions.

    Maybe a bit dark, but I like the saturation.

    I think the first is best at showcasing the t-shirts. In the rest, you can't see the design details on the girl's shirt. I would say crop just the guy in either 2 or 3, but I also find his arm (the one hanging) looks awkward.

    I good pose may be one with head cupped by hands, so that the arms are up and not bloacking the design.

    Thanks for the comments so far guys - again, I'm mostly looking for feedback on the lighting levels/saturation, but other comments are appreciated as well. Anyone else think these are ok as is or do they need further levels adjustments or other adjustments?
