Please do not be so impatient. It is unrealistic to expect responses after a thread has been posted only 30 minutes.

Overall, it is a good start. The pose is alright, but the lighting is bad. Your parents are under exposed and have shadows across their faces. Additionally I would have shot in portrait orientation rather than landscape. All of the space on the sides detracts from the subject. One last thing, It is hard to tell from the low res image but it appears that your father's eyes are slightly out of focus. Therefore, the aperture should be increased.

Keep practicing and you'll get there. It just takes time and a bit of effort.

So this would be the better of the two pictures I took. It was noon and I did not have a flash other than on camera. I also do not have any reflectors. I tried a shot out in the direct sunlight but it was so bad I deleted it.
Sorry for being impatient, it must be the Marine in me.

The fill definitely helps. However, you have the depth of field so shallow your dad is out of focus.

In the first pic they are too centered for my taste. Nice setting though. A little editing could make it a nice image. It isn't as bad as you think.

Looks like you shot in dappled light with the sun high in the sky. That's a tough situation. At f5.6, you most likely should've had both parents in focus. Have you looked at your point of focus using Canon Zoom Browser? That might be helpful in finding out what occurred. What mode did you shoot in? It might be helpful to post metadata for the shot so the forum members can assist. Fill is good in this situation and Photoshop is still kicking my a$$. JMHO.
