Take this with a grain of salt because I am no expert, but IMO, the first one would be better if the eyes were in focus. To me it looks like the child's right arm is more in focus. In the 2nd one, is his nose supposed to be orange? and what is with the black dots on his stomach?

They are going for the snowman look there...carrot nose and black buttons...cute. I agree focus soft on the face in #1...#2 seems zoomed in a little too close.

Cute kid and I like the snowman concept.

I think the crop is good on the second one but it appears the top part of his hat is in focus? Correct me if I'm wrong. That's the tough part about going wide open, right? The focus point needs to be smack on the eyes because everything else even an inch closer/farther away won't be as sharp?

Thanks for the comments, I appreciate all the help I can get! I am a hobbiest and enjoy improving each time and trying new things.

Like others have said, focus should be on the eyes. Cute pics though.
