Have to say something about this picture.
I think it would be better if there was no light on the ground in front of her? What do you think?

It gets confusing when there are several comments between photos. I don't know who's commenting on what.

First at all she is very cute, congratulation !
i regret "the right in the middle" of the composition, i like the "not post processed picture", i might want to adjust a bit some sliders but hey it's not bad at all and she have a nice smile and she is looking straight at the lens.
So for the model 10/10 for the photographer 7/10 ;)

This shot was done by my 9 year old… I tried to post the reflection out as much as possible but I think she has a good eye already.

Really like the overall composition of the picture, its really relaxing just looking at it.
The boaters are really nice looking withing the frame for sure.
Perfect balance of highlights and shadows. The exposure for mountain is spot on and fantastic looking.
The only minor gripe is that it seems the orange on the lake at some spots is too saturated, looks almost unnatural.
Still easily a 9/10 picture.

The Dying Gaul.
My first foray into more serious Photoshop effects. Took me a long while to edit this as I am not very proficient at this but planing to get better :-)
P.S. The subject is me.

Thanks! My daughter is excited she has been begging me daily for her own camera. I am on the hunt for the right thing.

Good effort, but i think the PP work looks obviously fake its a bit too drawn on looking. The blood line from the chest just stopping at the navel, the arrow placement looks a bit off to the wound, just doesnt look convincing. But like you say you are new to fx stuff, it isnt easy so keep at it as you are heading in the right direction for sure. Overal the image is focused well and exposure etc looks good. 6/10

gorgeous model. to me the dress looks blown out and im losing some detail. but im not sure if that's from the extremely thin DOF or if you really did blow the whites out. something about her eyes is very pleasing and her facial expression I like it looks as if shes about to show a great smile. the overall picture looks somewhat hazey but again not sure if you were going for that effect or not deliberately. to me I think the nailed the composistion but little things like the blown outdress and hazeyness hold it back. 6/10

Nice photo. The subject is a bit too centered for my liking. Good action stop. I would've cropped a bit tighter the top too. Face is not visible, but what can you do when you are shooting these kind of photos!

Overall 7/10

Amazing! I would totally hang this on my wall. Big metal print. Colors, composition, everything is dang near perfect in this shot. Really nice job! 9.5/10 "best of" quality for sure.
