Out of 60 pics, only a few I've been able to rescue. Relied on natural sunlight and no tripod, what a mistake! Lots of Photoshop work on this.

I know how frustrating that can be, when you do a shoot and end up rescuing what you can. I think you have done well, great pose and composition. I like the fact one subject is slightly off focus. I think its a great shot

Composition and focal difference are spot-on, K. Very impressive. Your youngsters have the most expressive faces. The lighting, I'm finding ok except for a touch less contrast at the front maybe?

Blimey thanks everyone. Mixed reactions on what works and what doesnt but the image has lost something on upload so perhaps that would be the colour problem. Thanks for the compliments about expressions - you should see my port pic! Thanks again everyone. K.

Don't mind the over exposure at all, in fact I think it adds to the pic. Only distracting thing for me is your sons grey troosers, IMO. Great image.

Hey, this is really good. I've often found it's so much better to shoot children without a tripod. It means you can move around and catch the unexpected.
This has a kind of GAP feel to it. I know it's mad but many fashion shoots over-expose whites in order to get more of a lifestyle feel anyway. Wouldn't worry about it.
