This was a shoot we did to get a photo for my grandmother, of all her grandkids (and two great grandkids).
The second shot is my ugly mug with my too good for me wife and our two kids. (yes I know I should have cropped the golf flag out of our photo).

Both shots are very nice. I have to admit i hadn't noticed the dirty and wet knees but once pointed out, I'd probably PS that. ;)

My only other nit is the gap between you and your wife.

Thanks for the cc. Those are the two things that bother me too.

After you've cloned/healed the knees in the first photo, maybe head over to the second one and clone out the golf flag and whatever that white pole thing is too?

And this is just a quirk of mine, but I'd probably crop each of them so the people are more centered left/right. Seems the first one has a lot more room on the right of the frame than the left. Same thing in the second one, but to a much lesser extent.

Both are very good as is though.

Both are great, but it would be good to fix details others have pointed out...

I find it hard enough to get my family out for a shoot, so kudos for that! Hah. I really dig the depth of field/large group combo. Only feedback I might suggest would be to balance the light a bit -- drop the highlights in the foreground of the whole family and increase some light on the second image. I'll have to get my family together soon and grab an image now!

Yeah a few things could have been fixed or thought out, however I do believe grandmother will love them for what they are, a precious memory for her to cherish!

Lots of smiles there. Nice they took the time to all dress alike for the photo.
