Default more of my niece Abby

Here's a few more that I worked on this afternoon... I really like the first one... I have such a hard time determining if the color casts are gone... seems like some have a red tint and others have a yellow tint... although my monitors not calibrated anyway - so who knows what I am looking at!!!

C&C always welcome!!!

These are all sweet, Kara. #2 is way cute and funny though. I love it. 1 & 3 are about a toss up for me. I like them equally. They're all good.

First three excellent, I think I like the engagement of the camera better in these as opposed to the 4th, though not all good people shots have to be looking into the camera I'll grant you.
Really nice!!!

To me these lacking the special something ... and I guess its the composition and camera angle.

#1 is good, #2 by far my favorite, #3 a little sad, #4 I am not wild about that angle.
I can't keep my grandkids still (or clean) long enough to get a decent shot. Very nicely done. Keep up the good work.

Kara, your niece is very photogenic (it must run in the family, because your kids are really photo-camel cute). I love #2 — if that's an in-camera crop I think maybe I would crop some off the top to balance it a bit better.

Thanks! I'm glad you like them! #2 is hysterical - she loves making that face!

Thanks for the honest feedback. This was more of an impromptu picture taking as we were heading out to the mall. We were on a landing halfway up the stairs with good window light, but I only had about 4 square feet of space - so composition was limited. I'll keep working though!

Thanks - kids are tricky - although at least this one would look at me - my two year old niece refused to look towards me!

lol - thanks - the crop was out of camera, so i have some room to work with - I'll play around with it some more!

Thanks for all the feedback!
