    If you want more focus on a certain area of the subject then make them more interesting or use lines or light to guide the eye to them. Don't eliminate other important parts of the subject.

    I dont know what exactly was done, if anything was done at all..but it looks like you were a little heavy-handed in post. Especially in the first one. Also, a shirt of some sort would be appreciated from me, but that's just my preference, I suppose. Maybe clone out the shadow in the background and crop it vertical? It just looks too square to me..again, maybe its just my preference..

    :thumbsup:

    Were these handheld? If so, it seems like a long shot to me to expect 1/50s 50mm f/1.4 ISO640 to look all that nice when the hands are extended on arms, facing backward. Get the thing on a tripod, better lighting so you can drop the ISO, open the aperture to at least f/2.8. Then youre cookin' with gas! :wink:
