I posted these over on another forum that I frequent. I value all of the input that I can get so I thought I'd finally post/contribute some pics here as well. The first two are my wife. I think I overpowered the background a tad too much since it seems to be spilling over some. The 3rd is my son from last night and I'm pretty happy with it.

Any and all critique is appreciated. Thanks.

The balls are crisp but his eye are a little soft. I agree with the backgrounds on the first two but that doesn't take away from the fact that they are very good.

I do agree that they're not as sharp as I would have liked. He was all over the place in those things so I only got a few shots.

Thanks for the comments.

The bright background doesn't bother me, but I think the pose, perspective, and lighting might not be very flattering to your wife. The lighting is hot on her forehead for both. On #1 the head-on pose combined with lighting and angle seem to me to make her chin look too large and forehead too small. The second one is better. Perhaps shoot her from a little higher angle and/or don't allow her to tilt her head back any?

The shot of your son is unusual in that most photos like this you see the child's expression but because of the hand, you only see his eyes and the expression is a bit of a mystery. I personally like it, but something more conventional would probably be more popular with most viewers.

#3 is creative and very candid.

Maderik, thanks for taking the time to give feedback. In all of the pics I took, she had a tendency to raise her head a bit so we were trying to work on that. Regarding the lighting on her forehead, I had toned that down a bit in post, but I guess I could have gone further with it. Noted for future shots.

I appreciate everyone else regarding #3.
