    1st - distracting background and mixed light
    the 2nd - she is OOF and has a bad look
    3rd- bad look
    5th good idea, wring lens, makes them look like they have giant hands
    6th is the best, 7th needed her interacting with him or the camera, not down

    Maybe they are?

    I'm not a fan of the vignetting.

    I dig the 4th and 6th.

    The grass in 7 looks super uniform and accommodating - never wanted to walk on something so badly in my life. :o

    1- okay, the background on the right is distracting
    2- she is out of focus
    3- good pic, she has a weird expression though
    4- colors look kind of dull, besides that good.
    5- interesting, cant decide, its creative
    6- my favorite so far
    7- my new favorite, very nice!

    thanks for the comments ya'll.

    and yeah, a lot of the shots she looks indifferent. there are a lot of really good ones, though, i took about 300 shots that day.

    Telephoto lenses tend to flatten the perspective...it would probably be better to use a longer focal length. I dunno...I haven't actually tried this shot but that's what I think would happen.

    some really nice shots in there.. excellent B&W conversions.... my only suggestion without going through every picture is there are quite a few shots where you shot in landscape orientation and ended up with a bunch of useless negative space that doesn't add anything to the photo.... had you cropped them, or shot them in portrait orientation, I think the would have been much stronger images.

    On that ring shot.. I like the use of the wide angle... but it's to much... I would have used your 50mm.....

    thanks, i really appreciate this coming from you, i respect you as an artist and photographer

    i'll see what they look like cropped. that's the great thing about Lightroom, i can crop whatever i want and know that i can go back to original with the click of a button :bigthumb:
