I like #1,5,6. Although #1 looks way too tilted for my taste.

Your sensor is dirty in #4, I can see a dust bunny or something there in the sky above the couple. #2 looks a little to washed out for me with the 70's looking post processing.

Can you point out where that is in #4 maybe by circling it? I'm not seeing it.

#2 is from sunflare and was minimally processed, I like the look.

Thank you for your input, I really appreciate it.

I only liked the last one. The 3rd one looks like shes depressed from her head tilted down. :confused:

You need to turn on Image Editing OK.

I like them all actually.

With #2....if you could brighten up the skin tones but leave the processed look i think it would be spot on...although it might not look right then...

but yea very nice set!

exposure on 1,2,and 3 are off. the flare from teh sun does not work it washes out your subjects

4 what flash modifier are you useing ? looks like direct, or bare flash, faces are not exposed

5. thats a donkey right? totally blown out, not sure i would include a picture of a farm animal in the collection

6. looks fun however harsh shadows, good idea, but execution is snapshotty

I'll try to be more consistent, thanks!

I believe I was using a combination of a westcott softbox, a shoot through umbrella, and direct flash.

I had a bunch more with farm animals, but I could only include 8 on here, the disc they received had well over 50 images to choose from

I agree, but I only had one 430exii to work with, but I like the way it turned out for the most part.

Thank you everyone, so much for the pointers and input, and of course, i'll always gladly take more.

I really like 3, some thing about the lighting catches my attention.

I really like 6. Harsh shadows don't bother me, since they look like they are from a car/streetlight. They don't look unrealistic.
