CC please! I struggled with the sky on this one and tried to temper the sky and attempt to keep everyone looking warm and natural. Let me know how you think I did.

Another one. This time had the sunset and used a couple of OCFs for lighting.

Looks fairly good.

Pic 1:

I would have stopped down to F4 or F5.6, your front man and back man are entering the out of focus areas and are soft (especially the front guy).
Lighting is ok, a little "flashed" to me. Dropping light output by -1/3rd or -2/3rd of a stop would have made it closer to fill light and looked more natural for the blend.
I'd crop most of the bottom away, up to the first set of hands probably.

Pic 2:

I'd have went for more ambient light (drag the shutter, you didn't need 1/640s for that).
And again I'd drop flash output to more of a fill level than key here, as it looks flashed.
Would be nice to feather light with lip of modifier so that most of it is just catching onto their faces and not the ground in front of them.

Very best,

I appreciate the detail in your feedback. I'm always looking for ways to improve and stretch my abilities. Thank you!
