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!
