These are photos of my friend, her hubby and their daughter.
I love two and three, but maybe that's just the dad in me... Don't really know enough to give critical feedback, and for the parents......keepers!
Number two is a great shot...very well posed and look
Thanks so much for taking the time to look! I appreciate it!
Photos 2 and 3 are the photos of choice here.
1 doesn't really cut it for the fact that she's in a strange position and anything that might "explain" said position is outside the frame. This fact gives the photo a "snapshot"-look, despite the good focus, nice colours, blurred background. But also her facial expression - albeit displaying something like "wary curiosity" to me - isn't the best - all just to my mind, of course.
Great shots! Not a huge fan of 1 though. I think what I don't like about it mainly is that she looks really unamused. Something that you may not have had a great amount of control over though .
3 is my favorite, no contest. Very personal feel because she's looking directly at the camera and that hair is just priceless. shot very well composed. At least as far as i can see. I'm new at this stuff though.
Three is my favorite, great shot. One has potential, but the composition is hurting it.
I agree with everyone else here, two and three are definitely winners. I think #1 could use a bit of toning down of the pink/magenta colors. Her lips and dress seem a bit bright, and it would also help a bit with her complexion.
I agree with the previous comments. 2 & 3 are the best. I especially like the look of the child in 3.
I like #1 for the fact that it's memorable, part of the moment and very real.
I tend to like images that reflect "real life" or ones that are not so professionaly staged or captured so that they look like they were taken by a pro. I have a very distinct liking for images that are well shot but go against the grain of popular thought on what makes a great image.
I find myself attracted to her eyes, the color of the dress and negative area to the left a little are a little distracting. If it were cropped and in B&W I think it would be even more interesting,
I also like image#3. They are all nice images IMO
But again, these are just my humble opinions
I like #3 the most.
I like #3 also. I would maybe play around with the contrast of the picture to bring out the dark parts and white parts of the pictures. Also, I would clone out that pole in the middle it's a bit distracting IMHO. She is cute BTW.
