Cute shots. Shooting kids definitely teaches you to take advantage of the moments they provide, and not to wait for them to do exactly what you might have imagined before hand.

please feel free to tear them up.. only some levels changes and only some real post processing in the last pictures. Nice part about kids is you just don't have to do anything for skin post processing... being I am still new to this.. I was glad to not touch anything but levels or curves.

Thanks

Cute pictures of adorable children. It looks as though your focus is pretty soft in a few? Could be motion blur with shooting the little ones? Not sure. Where was your focus point? It looks like maybe it was the middle? Some have alot of noise? Maybe they were underexposed and then lightened using levels?

I had a play with one to try to fix it a little.
HEre is the play

WOW nice edit...

your right I did under expose a bit. Or I blew out the sky in the background.... I think I had my iso too high as well...my bad..again this was sort of casual...

I attempted to use some fill flash in a few but the one year old cryed everytime the flash went off. so I went to no flash and opened up the apature..

I appreciate the time you took for input and the PP work you did. I like the blue effect on the water... she might not due to this being at her mom's house. but nice...how did you acheive that... sorry pretty new here still.

I use PS CS3 but to change the water it is pretty basic. Go to Layers>new layer and change the blending mode to color. Then pick your color and grab a paint brush and start painting. It is as easy as that :)

#4 is my favorite of the bunch. I like the composition, and the subject is great. Very nice capture.

I'm not fond of #6. There's too much empty space above her head, and the color of the bush on the left side of the frame right next to her face is drawing my eye away from the subject, while at the same time giving me the impression that her face is more that color than it really is (if that makes any sense).

I agree with your comments on 6 I thought about Cloning it out because she does have a very red complection to begin with... so I have thought the same thing that the stupid red bush keeps pulling my eye to it...You may be right it might also bring out more red in her skin then what is there.....

Thanks for your input... I appreciate it...thanks for taking the time...

tft1974....good thought on the house. I totally missed that...still... I will go back an re-edit this.

Not sure about cropping any tighter. I am was trying to adhere to normal print size and I liked the sort of negative space on the right... But a tight crop would also work out well for this. Will try that as well.
