You really don't know what flat lighting is do you? The first shot is far from flat. It needs the light to be a little higher and some more fill...
Very nice, love the comp and PP
Great shot! Nice job on the selective focus but there's no bokeh.
OH...to be a unicorn!
Soften the straight edge along his back.
Move them up just a tad in the frame.
Use a consistant opacity for the font and...
Cute shot. Watch your highlights though, they're burned out on her back.

That sucks!! Hope you feel better soon!!
Great shot, I agree that the light post adds balance.

The second maybe better with a little reduction in opacity of the texture layer.

I agree. It may be a bothersome in a print if enlarged. I will edit that portion. Thanks.
Thanks everyone, your comments are very much appreciated.
It's all about the eyes NJ. Thanks pal!!
There is a backdrop. My wife and...
I feel in the first two shots they are competing with the blossoms.
But the last two rock!! Nice work.
I haven't been around on the forum much lately but couldn't resist dropping in to show off my first Grandchild. She's almost three months old....
I like the PP on the second one of the first set.
Try the lighting at 45 degrees, at a height to get light into both eyes. Not easy in a self portrait.
Because you were partially out of the shot...
A quick edit. Hope you like it.
