    I only call this redneck modeling due the clothing, location. Now. Can we get to the issue at hand here? Got some great advice yesterday, I already know I needed flashfill, sharpness...maybe some ideas on posing? Your critique will help me for more modeling sessions I have coming up. THANK YOU! I am also busy today, so will be on and off checking, more than likely checking back this evening. Thank you for your help to improve these!

    Also, since I started shooting RAW, I don't seem to be getting the sharpness as jpeg?? I use DPP to convert RAW files.

    Imo only nr. 1 has some potential. With some editing it could be a pretty cool shot.

    I do sharpen them, but when i go to reduce luminace noise, it's like it takes it back to not being as sharp. I them upload then to PS for final touches. Like, you can't get rid of blemishes on DPP.

    Noise reduction and sharpening tend to be two sides of the same coin. Only sharpen what you want sharp and only reduce noise on what you want to reduce noise. If you want to do both to a portion at the same time, you probably need a really expensive program like Topaz or noise ninja, because really the same thing that sharpens increases noise and the same thing that decreases noise decreases sharpness.

    I use NR becuse it seems to cause noise, like I notice white spots in the hair. I took this one RAW of hubby and my son....it turned out sharper.

    You typically don't want to sharpen hair anyway. I almost never do anything more than very​ light sharpening to the whole picture, and then I'll go in and selectively sharpen certain parts, like eyes. You definitely never want to sharpen the sky, as all it does is bring out noise.
