    Here are a few shots I have gotten over the last few days.
    I have been working on getting candid pictures of people,
    and I have found it to be more difficult than the rest of you
    make it seem! *LoL* All comments and critiques are appreciated:

    1. I purposely shot this picture off-center:

    I like Matt's shot. Would reduce the highlights though.

    Not sure what you meant by highlights, but I went in and adjusted the color, hue, and saturation with Paint Shop Pro...the original was untouched. Here is what I came up with:

    #2 is fine off-center, but it kind of bugs me that his ear is cut off.
    Did you use a Lensbaby for #3?
    Cool shots; were these all people you knew?

    #1 Is my son Sam, and yes, I am a bit miffed that I cut off his ear. He was moving around and hamming it up for my friend as she was taking his picture also.

    #2 Is Matt my neighbor.

    I like the retouched version!

    I meant the lightest areas. In Photoshop CS, there is this tool 'Shadows/Highlights' with which we control this. I'm not sure if Paint Shop Pro comes with it.
