Phil The Printer

Phil The PrinterLovely eye contact, would love to see a version that was a straight B&W version (less contrast adjustment) only because the picture composition and contact is so strong and the processing distracts a bit from the fact there is a lovely moment under it all, maybe/?/perhaps/might be?

Masculinity

MasculinityNice one Janet might even stand a tighter crop say from about an inch above ear where hair line starts to curve and a tad off the bottom top of bicep maybe?. Its ok as is, this is probably just what I would do to make it more intense ( in your face ) or his lol.

The Matriarch

The MatriarchI've done a mod Kenny but only because I fancied doing one, your shot is fine, its real and its been taken while your out and about and sometimes there will be distractions in the background and you dont always notice them when your so intent on getting your shot but you've done the right thing and and shot with a wide f/stop and blurred the background if thats what you wanted. My advice is to keep doing what your doing and try and keep your awareness of whats in your frame at the highest level the moment you shoot, and the highlightes are perfectly acceptable dont even go there you really dont have to spend hours in photoshop with street photography to satisfy perfectionists content is far more important.

Tom

TomOne thing to watch out for on these fast lenses is that when they are used wide the focus is pretty shallow and I can see this shot has suffered from that as his face starts to blur from the outline of his nose back, and I can see where you have had to oversharpen his left eye to match that perfect right one, its always hard to see in camera if your sharp, I usually find f/3.2 gives enough depth of detail on a shot like this, hope you dont mind that I've mentioned all this, but he's your son and I'm sure you'll get another go, you always work to high standards I know.
