Whoa now...I don't care who you are a nice compliment is a nice compliment. Thank you for them by the way! I did ask for critique but why comment over someone posting a nice comment garbidz? There's no reason for that, c'mon.

As for your critique garbidz, Thank you! I will try to blur the background some and see how it looks. I'm running with a 17-55mm so a longer range zoom would have been better I agree for natural bokeh and by pulling the girls away from the wall some. Great idea with the grey card though too.

I appreciate the critiques and comments everyone has offered. Thanks!

nice shot, but I can't stop looking at the massive boot on the taller child. Perspective issue? or Mom's boots? as another mentioned.

I would bump exposure .10 ish probably, or bump whites a bit. But I like bright photos.

Yeah the boots do look a tad on the bigger side for her. Don't think they were moms but I could be wrong. Haha

Does the blur work here?

I like from the ankles up again, the feet and sidewalk sharpness don't work with the blur to the BG.

Just to add, I think your better off to blur out the feet too if you go this route(~ankle height with a radial effect) to to keep the eye on the girls higher up. The sharp sidewalk draws my eye down

Now you got the Photoshop blur (and you did it very nicely) but which is not the same as bokeh blur. Also, you might have extended all the way to the soles of the boots..

I suggest you try both. You got the 50mm 1.8 which is not the greatest lensE there is but it opens up to 1.8 and gives you the effective focal length of 80 mm on your 1.6x crop body.

My heart melts when I look at the girl with the boots she will eventually grow into.
I know that she herself feels way cool never mind what other people think.
This feeling is one of the merits of this picture.

Now you've made an effort on a picture with a subject: "Girls with autumn leaves".

Think about other approaches. Like 'My first pair of boots'.
Or if you like to get to something bigger, check out how Sally Mann approaches this fragile age of girls finding out about the woman they are bound to become.

But first and foremost: Have fun!

(the force be with you)
