Ok here are just a few more for C&C.
I don't know how to turn the first pic the right way
Is that you in the first picture? Single?

Two tips. Learn the holy trinity: ISO/Aperature/Shutter Speed. Next, buy a flash and learn to bounce flash/difuse. 430EX mark I's can be had for under $200. Oops forgot, you haven't moved to Canon yet.
She is my best friend. But here we both are and I am married.
I like alot of your photos and i think you are heading in the right direction (meaning that you are improving). I am a noob and I dont know if you do any post processing but i find it helps me in creating a better looking picture and also it helps me try to take better pictures next time i shoot. Because in post processing alot of times i see where better light or a certain something would have set the picture off. I dont know if it is okay to edit your photos so i am going out on a limb here to give you an ideal. I took your friends photo and did some small touch up on it. I am in no way saying she needs it. You are both very attractive. So here is your photo toched up. Let me know if you dont approve and i will delete it and apologize. signed Randall
Just my $0.02 (USD) worth, but I believe firmly that in 99% of cases, human skin should retain at least some texture and the nose, which was previously in focus, should continue that way, even after post.
No, I have no problem with helping me out. Besides I need all the help I can get LOL. Thanks a bunch and if you want to edit anymore then by all means do. and thanks a bunch on the comments also :mrgreen:
You made her look plastic. Add some texture (noise), as said above, or else she'll look as fake as a porcelain doll.
Here is the photo with a little noise added and some slight sharpening. It might be a little to much of both, but I am trying to give you the general ideal.
Your next purchase should be a dedicated flash so you can create some softer light on your friend. Otherwise the photo is fine as a "Hey look at me using flash" shot.
The picture of the kid is the strongest. Make sure to straighten out those lines.
*pssst* she didn't say her friend was married.
Concur with the flash. On camera flash will almost always give unflattering shadows to your subject, it will wash out colors and make a good image bland. If you have to flash, bounce. On-camera flashes are evil (for the most part).
