    #3 is my favourite, I prefer the tone over #1 but that's probably personal taste. Actually I like the tone in the wood better, but I like the boy's face better in #1 - perhaps something in the middle would work.

    #2 doesn't do much for me.

    #4 could benefit from toning down the saturation/vibrance and contrast, it just looks a bit overdone, but I like the pose and overall composition.

    They are some nice shots my personal favorites are 1 and 4. I think the little boy looks good holding what i would assume is his fathers fingers and I like the pose of the 4th one.

    #1 is my fav'. I like the tone and the composition and the lovely smile on the little guy's face. Not too keen on that over-processed colour look in #3 & 4, but like fokker said, it's personal taste.

    Love the tones in number one, really a great photo! 4 is a little to orange for me. Could you try toning it down?

    What happens if you make it cooler? It still ooks a little orange. I think #1 is my fav! VERY cute! I also like #2, but it's a personal preference I think. :) Good job!

    I really like #3 and #4; I think the composition is great on both of those. Even though 4 does look a bit overprocessed I don't really think its that bad. Maybe meet somewhere in the middle of 4 and the edited 4..the edited one looks a bit too soft to me.

    I agree, the edited #4 is too soft IMO.

    I really like 1. I think two would've been a lovely family shot if the parents weren't cut off. The fourth one is much too saturated
