I took some photos while my kids and some friends were dressed up for a royal wedding party. I don't have any lighting other than the flash that is on the camera already so I set them up looking out the window and took a lamp and put it on the floor behind them. Of course I couldn't keep the little one looking out the window. Would love some CnC.

You're more likely to get help if you post the pictures instead of just links.

They all look underexposed and I'm not personally liking the close crop. The best one of them in my opinion is probably #3, it's pretty close to a correct exposure and the close crop sort of works.

Nice series. 3,5,6 and 7 stand out for me.

The crops are way to tight to give you any feeling of feeling that these were from a royal wedding party. The B&W conversions also need a bit of work since they look a bit dull/flat.

Also, some of the shots are a bit soft (2, 3, 4/5, 6) and they are all a bit under-exposed (3 is close).

#4 has the most potential, but it needs a fair bit of tweaking (exposure, brightness, contrast, white balance and sharpening).

On the composition side of things IMO i would be taking these shots in landscape and leaving space on the side of the shot a that the subject is looking at. Their faces are too close to the edges.

Shoot little people from chin level, as you did in the last two, rather than down on the top of their head.
Number your shots when posting this many. It makes it easier for referencing.
Two cuties. Keep shooting.
