It has been a good while now since I have posted on POTN, time to change things up a bit, here is a little of what has been keeping me from, besides the full time job of course:lol: C&C much appreciated, any improvements that I should take note of?

beautiful ladies, but the images are a little soft. The 5th image has a lot of potential. That was my favorite.

It looks like the focus was missed on these shots.
Otherwise they would be wonderful

Nice shots, and models, but have to agree they seem a little soft, that was my first thought after looking at the first shot, other than the model was attractive.

I think that 1& 3 were the softest out of the set, otherwise awesome shots. Keep up the good work.

Do you use auto focus points? a few are soft but in the 3rd one the grill on the Miller welding machine is in focus.

Thanks for the feedback, I did take note of the OOF on these shots. Using auto focus and every now n then manual. I'm also getting around with my new Sigma lens which i used in these shots. Also picked up a second speedlight which I intend to play around with on my next shoot. any advice on getting that perfect focus point? I seem to have a hard time in manual focus in low light and through my tiny viewfinder. Plus Auto focus seems to miss more compare to my kit lens. :/

1 and 4 are suffering from some very rough crops. Don't cut the hands off...

Is it weird that the photos look sharp on my screen, except for the third one?
