Not sure if these are cropped or shots were taken like this but composition seems way off in most. First one is the best. Second one you chopped her off at the waist. Third one you chopped off the parent's head. I think in photography class they teach you not to chop off body parts at those locations, no?

I don't like the cropping either on them. The 2nd one has potential, but typically you should never crop at the joints.

Sometimes, and more than often, details tell a better story. You have good eyes and great potential. I can feel them from these pictures. Keep shooting...

Deffo prefer the first best, and not just because she looks a little like Pamela Anderson lol. I do have a sore neck at the minute trying to make sure my Pamela Anderson comparison is accurate :P

And side note - Im a female.

Well that explains it <-- meant as a joke by the way

1st shot is the only one that has any merit, Although i dont see what you were trying to do - the rest do look like snap shots, could be taken any day by any one with any camera

that being said the colors look good on all of them but the content is DUH

Welcome!
1 seems to be more visually appealing to me than the others, but it seems oversaturated and dark.
I like the spray of water in 2, but I feel disconnected from pic since there is only 1/4 of a person there.
3 just seems a little disconnected too. You can see the subject, and that they are on a sidewalk of a street, but Im not getting real intent here. The person holding baby is not in picture, so I get confused about why cars are in bg, and why part of adult still in pic.
4 would have been better if off camera flash used instead.
Keep Shooting

Ms. Sam, in my opinion...
#1 is a pretty good, composition shows some thought. Lighting doesn't do much.

#2 doesn't warm me. I don't see much purpose.

#3 cute kid, but no sense of composition, no tie in with the mother and to much left over on the sides that is distracting.

#4 has potential. The arm exiting the frame and then reentering,however, isn't too neat. The lighting is 'atmospheric' but not very flattering. My biggest concern is all the background junk because with a 'moody' shot you wouldn't want those distractions.

You will get a handle on who makes useful criticism and who is making inane comments to get their post count up.

I quite like the images, especially the baby one.

Love the comment too ;)
