    This was my first photo shoot with someone other than a family member. :wink: I would really appreciate any and all C & C on these.

    I personally think these are beautiful photos, nice posing, lovely colors but then it seems like you had the perfect ham as a model! Great job!

    Thanks so much! She is such a sweet little girl and loved being in front of the camera. She was much easier than the next shoot that I did....at 2 1/2 years old. LOL

    Those are great. If I have anything to say, I think they could all use just a bit more contrast.

    Thanks Tek, #3 is one of my favs also. I hope the conversion looks okay.

    Thanks Epp, I appreciate your input. I'm always trying to learn how I can improve my pp skills.

    Very nice pictures. That girl is a natural in front of the camera. #3 is my favorite. The only thing I could suggest would be to turn the brightness down and bring the contrast up on the first 2. I am by no means an expert or pro, so I may be way off.

    You said your photos were ok to edit, so I took the liberty to see how it would look if we did. How's this look?

    Thanks, glad you liked it. I use Photoshop Elements 6.0 (came preloaded on my system)

    I thought #1 was pretty close to perfect, DeCall. Great depth of field and catchlights in the eyes.

    The white balance leaned toward green, however. That's not unusual when shooting with a lot of green around, like in trees or grass. It also tends to throw your exposure off slightly since grass tends to becomes the 18% gray the meter is looking for.

    An edit with the green channel reduced by 5%, -1/3 exposure adjustment, and some sharpening.
