    Ooooooo... I like these pictures better than X's... Don't get me wrong, I'm a red X lover just as much as the next, but these are much better pictures.

    Those are really nice shots, Tangerini! Although I usually really like seeing a person's eyes, there's something about the second shot (where you're looking away), with your expression and your hair arranged a little differently than in the first shot, that I really like.

    I was thinking the same thing. Your face looks a bit 'warped', even more so in #1 and that one has a distracting background. But I like the pose, and the use of the light.

    It's up to you of course, but I would recommend 80-100 for portraits.
    that's more flattering (no, I'm not saying your ugly..:lol:...au contraire)
