    We went back to Oxon Hill Farm yesterday for the first time since winter. Here's a couple of shots of Tyler and one of a cute little boy who I couldn't resist photographing. I love photographing at this farm--so many interesting sights, textures, etc. Feel free to critique if you'd like.

    All these shots were with my 55-200mm, ISO 200.

    Centered, but I still like the pose

    I changed the color of the little boy's shirt; it was the same color of green as the grass before. I wasn't very neat with my edits and may go back and retouch them a bit.

    Gah, isn't it great to have an excuse to get out the ol camera and get some pics?? I wish there was somewhere interesting around here I could go to play!

    On the first one, I can see a halo around his left shoulder and around his hair on is right side.

    Not sure what your processing steps are, but it sort of looks like you sharpened your images for web, then ran it through a noise filter. I have been told that the best time to run images through a filter is before you do too much processing so that the program has as much original data as possible to work with. Someone please correct me if I am wrong!!
    After a little reading, I think that may be part of the problem that I have had with some of my pics in the past, so I don't know if it will help you any but I wanted to pass it along anyway.

    I think a lot of my pics come out like your have here (sort of over-filtered and over-sharpened looking), so I am very interested to see what someone else with more knowledge than me has to say about what might cause it and/or how to fix it.

    That is a VERY cool location! I can see why you like shooting there.

    I really love the summer feel to tehse. The yellow in the field behind him really says late summer to me. The sun on his head too.

    I wish #1 had more eye contact, but I also know just how hard that is to come by. Great use of the fence to create a path for the eye to move through the frame.

    I like #2 a lot as well. I think I'd like to see this one as b&w, there is something about it that really speaks to me and I'll bet it would do so even more in b&w (but I'm a fan of b&w anyway).

    That's a pretty good edit for doing it quick on the little boy's shirt. yes, I can tell something's been done, but if you hadn't told me it was changing the color of the shirt, I wouldn't have known.
