I like them all. Did you use photoshop for post processing?

these are beautiful. I love the edits. How did you do that?

Thanks! I work with many layers. I usually adjust the background and family separately, so a lot of masking and erasing. To get the surrounding area so bright and bold I saturate/blurr/adjust the contrast.

Here is one of the originals.....

I really like these! I think I might tone down the vignettes just a little though, they're very strong. Especially where they start to cover faces. A few of them also look a little cool, but maybe that's your preference. I love your posing!

I really do like the vignettes and I don't see it covering any faces...on my screen...nor do they seem cool on my screen. I do agree that the vignette is dark, but that is the look I was going for.

It's all personal preference! And I do like the vignettes in general.

Their skin looks particularly cool to me in number 4. The definitely could be a difference in monitors though...

Your vignetting is a little too close to the people in some of these shots, besides that I can't find too many problems with these shots. (except that some of these shots could use a little bit of sharpening, they probably went duller after the resize though anyways)

Good shots.

I agree with others about the venetting. But if its kind of your signature look then don't change it to much ;)

4 looks a touch cool on my monitor as well.
Over all though I love these. I think you did a great job of bringing out the colors but keeping the focal point of your photos the people. And I just LOVE that truck!

I can see 4 looking a little cool after the upload, but when I pull it up in Photoshop it looks plenty warm....Im going to print a few.

Thanks! I also loved the truck :D

He is about 10 years older than her. They married when she was 19....I believe she is 32 now. He definitely did well :) Couldn't get a real smile out of him....just a goofy look :er:

Thanks for your comment.
