    I was about to say how her picture of him is better composed than his picture of her. :o

    Nice work, though, man.

    no problems, i think is a good edit, many people like the brown tone also. i think my edit is too saturated, but now i'm too lazy to change :)

    and ya, the eyes is a bit soft, but it's b/c was shooting at f/2.8 and everything came out a bit soft

    The focus is on her jacket, and not her eyes. From what I've heard, the primary rule when taking a portrait is that you have to focus on the eyes. Especially when you're working with a shallow depth of field, as is the case here.

    Haha, cool, just saying. Otherwise I like your compositions.

    Also, I said this in another thread where you posted pictures of this girl. Her 'model' face is kinda bland, but when she smiles/looks animated she really pops well. I remember seeing a couple where she looked animated and really liking them.
