They look pretty good. Good lighting. A little soft. Nice job

Quite pleasant. If you're using auto focus, make sure the right focus point is registering. The second photo has the tree trunk in focus instead of the gentlemans face. There are also a couple of hotspots on the tree in the background of the first and his face in the second.

Nice efforts though.

Henny.

Though nicely saturated, they appear to be a bit soft and lack pop. Try a slight S curve adjustment and perhaps high pass sharpening or a couple of passes of USM. You also need to shoot in portrait orientation. Yearbooks don't accept photos shot in landscape.

I agree with previous comments about being a bit soft. I also feel they are a bit on the warm side... and one last comment if I may :) .. he looks not very happy in the first picture, you have to direct him to give you a nice smile.. like this: :D

It's a good set, I'm sure he likes them!

:p

I didn't think I was in Landscape mode, I shot all in Manual Mode...
If I understand correctly.

I agree with the previous posters on the focus being a bit soft, as well as the highlights being blown in some areas.

But I just wanted to point out.. I believe they meant Landscape Orientation (not camera mode), and Portrait Orientation.. so basically turn your camera vertical instead of horizontal.

hth's,
