While the light may have been harsh you have maintained texture in the highlights on your friends shirt. Well done.

The light looks good. Hope it was a rewarding trip.

Thankyou Bynx and Pitter...

These shots were taken about 11am in the morning but I tried hardest to expose for the highlights. The first was in a little shade and the second in direct sunlight.
Sun was on left hand side.

Thankyou again for feedback...

Thankyou simple for your feedback as well...

I thought ND mainly for longer exposure but everything is possible...

An ND filter would darken any part of the image not hit by the flash. So the foreground would be lightened while the background could be darkened at the same time. If thats what you wanted.

Overall these images look soft on my monitor. Also, you my may wish to straighten the images. You could use the horizontal walls in the background as a reference.

In #2, the 2 men in the background are a bit distracting to an otherwise nice pose by your friend. Not much you can do about that unless your are an expert at cloning them out using a photo editor
Lighting looks good.

Thankyou for comment Wingman.

I was wondering about the softness as well. I export from Lightroom at 1024 -1024 pixel size.
Is that too big coz photos dont look that soft in Lr?

Regardless of size, I've found that uploading directly to the site degrades the quality of the image. Therefore, I upload my images to www.photobucket.com and then copy the link from there. Not entirely sure about the science behind it, but it works a lot better. Perhaps one of the moderators can chime in on the issue.
