    not your strongest set.

    i like 2 the most. only problem is the skin tone is way to cool for my taste.

    and i like the expression in 5.

    the rest dont do anything for me.

    facial expressions...you're not kidding.

    This couple was exceptionally tough. Not making excuses, it's my fault for not coaxing blood out of stone....but this girl was completely uninterested in having her photograph taken.

    95% of the pics were unusable due to a sour expression on her part. Based on her overall attitude (not just to being photographed) I feel very sorry for the guy.

    But hey, after I cashed their check...I'm out.


    but appreciate the comments though, esp as I am working on composition atm

    Yeah still playing around with color and the overall feel.
    The "real" color that day is tending to a reddish orangey sunset....fairly warm sunsets here

    could you explain how you achieved the pseudo vignette/falloff in 10 in the foreground, i really like the way that came together.

    i really like 2 but it need to be warmed up quite a bit, their skin looks really blue. its not as good as your last set you posted, but it looks like the couple really didn't help with that at all. they almost look unhappy to be there.

    I feel like on a couple of them a greater DOF would've helped...at least to get both of them in focus. Dunno if you were going for one in focus and one not but it's just my opinion. This one for example:

    [​IMG]

    Just have both of them in focus and then have some fall-off

    i still don't understand why couple don't dress up alittle when they take these pics.
    the set would have been so much nicer if the dude wore an oxford. he looks to casual.
    and he also should have shaved! :o

    I think there are too many soft images in this series. 4 out of 14 in a hand picked series is pretty bad.

    2 would have been better if their feet was not cut off, and the lamp in top left hand corner was cloned out + it is too cool.
