    #1 I think focus is ok. Id like to see a different comp though

    #2 I wish you were more on his level and it looks a little soft but the image is kind of small so hard to tell.

    #3 This one is turning up really small for me.

    Well first off, welcome!

    I agree on 1, I think a different comp would be better. Something where you can see more of her face and not cut off her teeny, adorable little fingers. I'm not calibrated, either, but her skintone does seem slightly off to me.

    2 Sunny with shadows can be tricky, but you did well not getting any sun spots him. I agree with trying to get more on his level, though.. or maybe a different angle even to "spice things up."

    3 is small so it is hard to CC too much, but I do notice the blown out dress. Be careful with light colors in bright sun. Sometimes it's best to underexpose a bit and then do layer masks in your PP so you can get the right exposure on everything. I also wish I could see more of the baby's face, but I know that can be tricky with another child holding her. Good job on the rule of thirds with this one, though, too.

    I also love your siggy pic, how adorable! I can't wait to see more of your stuff.

    Here is this one larger and one more from the same day.



    The lines in it bug me, like the wall he is sitting on is tilted or something.

    WELCOME!!

    1. This is precious and love the little hat! I agree with others that a different crop would be good and watch out for cutting off limbs!

    2. I think I would have cropped a little differently as well to get rid of some of the dead space on the top. It also looks a tad dark to me on my screen (but I am badly in need of recallibrating it!).

    3. Good job with rule of thirds here. The whites look a tad blown on my screen.
