Since I've been prone over the years to contribute critiques without asking for one in return, I thought i'd submit a couple for y'all to provide feedback.

These are two young people from a drumline that I photographed in April.

Eyes in #1 seem very over worked.

I like the composition of both but agree with the above comments about the eyes. I'd probably bring down the exposure a touch as well in # 1. # 2 looks more like a squint in harsh light rather than a wistful gaze into the distance. Very interesting subject though.

Please return your adjustment brush to the Lightroom tray. I like both images, focus, color and composition once the eyes in #1 are returned to human state.

Thanks everyone :)

Sorry have been away.

Yea, I boosted the color in her eyes for impact. It made an impression on you obviously. Ok, you didn't like it. The young lady did LOL

It was a very cold day and the drumline was practicing outdoors - maybe 40f -- and then the sun came out. so yes some squinting. I don't have the option to get them to pose, they're practicing and performing

Did you crop the 2nd one? I think you need more shoulders. Cropping right at the neck isn't the best.

The second one was not cropped actually. I see your point tho. Thanks for the input
