Thanks all.

I would agree. #4 is my favorite too. I like the crop that you did Bagsfan5. I left a little elbow room when I took it just in case the kids' mother wanted an 8x10. I always seem to compose just right and then when making an 8x10 we end up cutting off body parts. Your crop is almost exactly how the 8x10 they purchased looked.

ZAKD. Thanks. I agree with you comments on #6. Too yellow and soft. The kids's mother loved it just the way it looks and didn't want any changes. I forget that we as photographers look at our work in a totally different way than our customers do.

Thanks again. Rob

Great shots!

The only thing i would suggest would be to fill more of the frame with the subject and with less 'dead' space above their heads, this obviously does not apply to every group / portrait shot, but can help make the picture stronger and more personal.

Also, try to make the subject laugh just before you take a shot, to help relax them and catch some real, natural smiles and energy - you might also try taking shots between poses when they don't expect it, you can get some great shots this way too!
