Are some of these cropped for smart phone usage? Not sure of the cropping here or angled shots, but thats a personal preference I guess. I think the actual shots are nicely focused, clear and adorable.:thumbup:
Great shots! Like others have said, the lighting is great and the composition is excellent! For a personal preference, i would have kept the rotation down just a bit, but again, thats all personal preference.
For everyone who said "It might just be me" or "Personal taste", you're wrong... The tilt is just too much... Period. The lighting is GREAT GREAT GREAT! You are cropping like my wife though... Get a little more in the photo, tilt less, don't change the lighting at all, and not even my wife would take off a kids head!
But like everyone else...The "arsty" angle is fail.
You can make it work when the composition allows for it. Yours don't. You clipped fingers and slivers of heads, and there is really no reason for it. These crops seem totally arbitrary.
Read up on composition...then you will really be stellar!
It's not wrong to crop heads, and stuff, but it is very situation dependant.
