Please go easy on these, I took some close up shots at a recent birthday party, the first time I've really tried to make anything out of them. Any and all suggestions as to how I could improve are very welcome, posts that simply tell me they're not good are not so welcome. ;)

They all look underexposed. I like them though, nice and sharp. Did you do any post work?

Yes, I touched them up a bit in Lightroom, nothing major though. Also thanks for bringing up the exposure, I meant to ask about that in my original post. According to the histogram, the exposure is correct for all the photos, but then you say they look underexposed. How should I gauge exposure to get an accurate result?

A histogram shows the distribution of all shades as they exist but you have to decide where the tones should be for the best image.
