What could/should I have done? I don't have a gel for my strobe yet. What strength CTO gel would be best?

Beautiful wife-model and lovely light. I don't know why you'd want gels here. I think these photos look great. A few nitpicks though:
In #1 I'd clone out the little tuft of fabric below her left shoulder.
In #2 I'd blur out that ring-shaped area on her rt forearm and lighten the blueish shadows on her rt shoulder and upper arm. I'd also spend some time with the liquify tool and shrink her rt forearm by the elbow just a bit.

Was my thinking that I should blend the strobe light with the ambient light.
Anyway, thanks for the advice, it is much appreciated.
Thank you.

I agree a gel would have helped. The light is not colored balanced and therefore looks artificial to me.
You have a lovely wife, keep at it.

As a sample..

Yes, you need gels.

That second image would make a killer desktop background for your computer. :cool:

Got out today and practiced some but man it was hot and I could tell in some of the pics she was about ready to kill me.. lol
But I LOVE getting out and shooting. I'm looking for gels for my AD600.

Very nice photos.
With the sunset at her back, yes, CTO gels would balance the flash with the ambient. But the others are pretty darned close, maybe 1/4 CTO would do it.
Love my 600 for outdoor portraits. Good work.

Thanks. I'm finally starting to see some progress thanks to the nice people in this fourm. The only problem I have now, is that my kids run when I pull out the camera and my wife gives me funny looks.
