Default A threesome to begin the year

Three to begin the new year. I did these for my beloved clients who happen to be always right. Each one loved the corresponding photo. I expect critique, please.

Image 1. The little boy at camera right rolled his shoulders forward and hunched down making him look odd. Compare his pose to the boy at camera left which is much more pleasing to the eye. The placement of the boys hand I feel is questionable. Hands should never be posed on the breasts of a women. LOVE LOVE # 2!!! Number three. I KNOW how difficult it is to get a good pose and expression on children this age. Good shot.

Agree with Benji and he knows more than me about this type, but #1 seems to have a color cast across it, a bit green on the left and not on the right. On the 2nd, to me it is soft all over and the softness is masked out around the eyes, so curious about that.

OK. Let me start by thanking

everyone for criticizing, it is

why I signed in here for. Now

let me try to explain.
Benji: the forced pose of the

child on the right is on me; I

didn't see it coming and I

failed to notice it as I was

more focused on the overall

picture. The mother was sitting

and the boy on the right is a

bit taller than his brother on

the left, so, what represented

no effort for the shorter one

meant bending for the taller kid

because I asked them to match

their mother's height and didn't

foresee or see that.
Mr. Pickles: you're right about

the green cast, but I didn't

notice it until I got the paper

print, this is a 12x18

enlargement. To be honest, I

don't know where that cast came

from, there was nothing on that

side of the photo but open air.
Pictures 2 and 3 are from very

little girls, number 2 was

turning 2 on that day, her name

is Marian(with an n) and number

is 1 year old. Her name is

Samia.
Compasiune: I don't have a DSLR,

I use a compact instead,but for

those of you unfamiliar to the

Nikon L620 I gotta say that,

though there's a total lack of

manual control, the shots of

such a camera turn out really

sharp and crisp. So I usually

don't have to soften or sharpen

because I get images focused

enough for fine printing. And quite often my photos turn out better than those shot with DSLR's.

The boy's shirts jumped out to me as distracting.
