    watch your highlights ;) you're also getting some halo effects from your PP work. Nice portraits though.

    OTAP isnt the main forum. Its a bit toned down.

    I didnt like her facial expression in the first one. In the second one her face looks kinda rough. In the other pic shes hold a nikon :ugh: :rofl: jk. I like the last one most.

    Your post processing is the weakpoint in all of your images.

    I actually like the shots though.

    Its just the internets! Friends and family are one thing but people who deal with it on a daily basis can really help you out.

    Good shots, but I agree the PP is pretty weak. None of them are really crisp. I like the last one though. Looks like it could be a cool AV.

    My wife is my harshest critic and I love her for it. She'd put some of the OTAP crew to shame with her harsh critiques.... but it's helpful because she looks at it from a clients point of view, which is something we as photographers tend to over look.

    Good point. Clients don't give a shit how hard you worked on an image.

    and it never fails... their favorite shot is your least favorite. i've had shots that I was ready to put in the delete bin that Ceese talked me out of and it ended up being the most ordered print of the set.

    it is this very reason I don't delete any images unless they're just pure shit.

    You're using too much shadow/highlight, it looks like. Wayy too much.

    I really like the compositions of the shots. Too much PP though IMO.
