Title pretty much says it all, what do you think? (I would post the images directly, but can't seem to get them down to 150k without it looking like square blocks)

Thanks in advance for your feedback,

Is there a way to view my flickr pics on this website directly / how?

In Flickr view the photo you want, then click "Share" at the top of the image, then copy the "Grab the HTML/BBCCode" info to your post. You can select a size at the bottom also if needed.

Interesting scenery. Do they have teeth issues?

One of the ladies just does not like to smile in pictures, much less show teeth, the other just wasn't showing teeth in the photo I chose. Here is one where they both had full smiles.

AMM:

I have a couple of my thoughts for you...

1. The boots seem sharpened and are very bright. The boots and face are in competition for being the focal point of the photo. The sleeve seems a bit [or close to being] blown out. This also makes her face fade into the background.

#4...The eyes are captivating. Did you do some PP on them? The catchlight is much bigger on camera left than right.

#5 (and 6). The pose has the larger girl in front. This makes them look more different than they would have to be. If the smaller girl was posed in the front, she would look larger and they would be closer to the same size.

I find the matching eyes is very interesting. The colors of their eyes are both a very light brown..a bit unusual and intriguing. Sisters? Your daughters, maybe?

Thanks for sharing!

Image editing OK, encouraged, and expected. Thank you for helping me learn!

Thank you for your responces,

#1 The boots have added clarity, but minimal sharpening, I can tone down the brightness in them & on the sleeve.

#4 I did some PP on the eyes, but the colors & catch lights are true to life, not altered to match. The sun was mostly behind her (camera left) and I had my 580exII on a stand w/a shoot through umbrella (camera right) gelled light yellow to balance with the sun.

#5 great tip! I'll use that in the future.

I met the smaller (but taller) girl while doing a fashion shoot 2 weeks ago and learned that she was an experienced model, so we set up a shoot. The girls are friends, no relation.

white balance seems off, and the girls eyes in the 2nd to last photo look to "enhanced"
