    Very nice, as usual. I have a question... When you did the indoor pics did you use all natural light?

    The one with the boy and the guitar is natural light only. The one with the girl at the piano, I used fill flash. Thanks for the comments kathi! :)

    Excellent job on the eyes in all these shots and the eyes are the most important part of any portrait. They are well lit, sharp and free of the red that is often present in close-ups.

    Number 1 is the most "formal" in terms of look, but I also find it the best in terms of framing and camera angle. It is in portrait format and there is the perfect amount of head room. Depth of field is also pretty well handled although I would like to see a little better sharpness in her hair on the left.

    It looks to me as if you have over sharpened the eyes and the whites are way to white. It just looks unnatural.

    Otherwise, they're good.

    These are very nice NJ. I like the first and the one at the piano the most. That little girl is very photogenic and you did an awesome job capturing her!

    the contrast is too high in the eyes, You notice it most in the first pic,

    but aside from that the shots are fantastic... !! Really Really nice....
