First one is sweet.just watch for the BG..the fireplace didn;t have to be there;) The color and lighting in the first is lovely...
The last two seem very purpley? But the second one is my favorite pose wise, and the DOf is good on this one..just that pesky color tinge?

I agree with Flo. Keep an eye on your background. What you have is called a "Merger" - it happens because we "see" in 3 dimensions, and the sensor only sees in 2. So when you are looking in the viewfinder it is difficult to be aware of what is behind your subject. A learned skill.
Usually, a Merger is a tree growing out of someone's head - the worst kind. "Color Mergers" take place when the color of a subject (the hat) is the same or close to the color of the background (the fireplace).

Thank you all for looking and the critiques. My 4 yr old son does not enjoy sitting still for very long and he moved over in front of the fireplace and the background clutter you can see in the first picture. I went ahead and snapped it because I figured it would make a cute snapshot any way.
I think the purple/blue tint in #2 & #3 may be from the flash that I used when I captured those two pictures - I failed to change the white balance setting from "white fluorescent light" to "flash". ~ My Bad :oops:
Any way, I knew that I wanted to try do them over at an other time when the available light in my home is better or may be out in our yard.
I just wanted to get some advice/opinions on how I might improve on this small collection.
FLO, can you please tell me how you made the color correction for #2 - I have Photoshop Elements 6 but I have not learned to use it yet.
