    Default Single mom & two pretty ladies (cc please)

    This family is very dear to me. The oldest daughterl is a member of our youth group at church and has shown me what true faith in God is. She lost her dad recently to suicide. It's a very tough situation, so this was an honor for me to capture this family. I would love some cc on the few that I have edited so far. Thanks.
    All shot with my 50mm. Had to up my ISO wayyyy higher than I ever wanted to, but the light was fading fast. I have other locations I shot at, just these were the first few I edited...

    1.1/100, ISO-1250, f/7.1


    2. for some reason this one is looking washed out on photobucket...
    1/125, ISO-1000, f/5.6


    3. 1/125, ISO-1000, f/5.6

    What a gorgeous family and what wow I have total admiration for them. I think you did great. You can't tell the light was fading! Don't be afraid to bump your ISO up, if you expose correctly then you won't have much grain.
    Some cc, do you have PS? I would liquify her arms a little and also her back a little bit in number 2.

    Yes, I have PSE. I will do that. Thanks for pointing that out.

    Glad you could take these "new" family pictures for them, Sadie! I think number three is really special of the two of them.

    I like their pose at the fence in the first one, too. Good job!

    These are great, Sadie and I know that this family will treasure these shots! What a tough situation for them all. (((hugs)))

    I don't have too much to point out, but I would probably bump up the contrast just a little in your b&w shot. It's close - so it won't need much of a bump, but I keep feeling like it just needs a bit more pop. Great catchlights and composition here! This one is a favorite so far.

    What a horrible situation, Sadie. So glad you could do this for them. I'm sure it's incredibly meaningful to them to have some special photos together, especially at a time when being a family means everything.

    You did a beautiful job. I love #1 of the three of them, and the one of the youngest girl at the brick wall.

    (Side note: Wow, liquify? I so don't know anything about processing. Just learning about layers and masks right now.............. so much to learn!!)

    Here's a liquified version- not the best, just to show you...

    Great shots. I like the way you positioned them by the fence in #1. Looks great! My only cc is that I wish there was a tad more light in the moms eyes in #2, but such a great capture, they look very natural. Way to go!
