Thank you for vs & cs for all my portraits - I know portraits aren't everybody's cup of tea
and it helps if you've done portraiture yourself to be more critical.
There were some b/g marks on last upload which I didn't see until tonight.
Please tell me if you spot anything wrong - I won't be offended.
I'll make this the last of my portraits for the moment - hope you enjoyed some of them.

Different Kate, and a lovely shot
not too sure of the background though
as is distracting from tender moment
But this is maybe just me

Seeing lots of marks on the background of this one, Kate, they look a bit like stars! WinkGrinGrin

Seriously, think I would prefer a more dreamy background to go with the mood.

You've saved the best for last. I would agree that a less busy background would be more in keeping with the image....maybe a soft blue or pink, or clouds??????

Kate, this is a lovely image the subjects really stand out with clarity. I don't know much about this style of shot but I think this one is very well taken.....and not to be picky, I would have just done white or another neutral colour for back drop..........well done Kate top image.
