My only suggestion would be fill flash and focus seems off in some of them. But a good start.

mrmarkin.. i agree with you there is to much in the background.. and this is what I was trying to show with the picture I cropped, but like you said the picture doesn't allow a good corp...

I like number 3, but two things are bothering me. One, is the vehicle and two, is the light pole growing out of her head.

Great shots!

I used the LOMO effect, cloned a few items and added some sharpening

Try to work on ways to get difficult people to smile, it's your job as the photog to make these people seem comfortable and happy in the photo's, I always tell them to look into each others eyes before a shot, it always either gets them to giggle or gets their eyes to water up for cutezy romantic photo's

Number 3 has two major issues with it that hit me right away, the horizion isn't straight and there is a power pole growing out of the girls head, the edited version improves the colours but you have to make sure you watch your backgrounds all the time.

Number 5 is out of focus, but the idea is good.

Number 6, I like the idea of the shot but I think you need to get down lower, at the moment it is sort of head on, nothing separates the couple from the background so it all blends together, if you get down lower you could have the train lines lead to the couple and then have alot more sky as the background.

Probably the only other thing that I would say is that you haven't really used the lighting to your advantage, there are too many heavy shadows.

I'm sorry if I have been a bit brutal, but the thing is there is potential in what you have done.​m/AndrewGosling.tbgspo​rt (external link)
