I'm finishing up some images for our local competition which will be my first time entering. I would love to get some feedback on these images. These will be for an all digital salon.

I do not have titles and would also appreciate suggestions as well as any critiques to improve the images.

The name that comes to mind for the 2nd one is either "The chocoholic" or "My True Love"

I had received critiques of these among a few others at IUSA, and have made some of the recommended changes.

For this one, it was recommended to crop similar to the second one because the legs were a bit "muddy", but I don't think it's working for me. I hate not seeing the legs. I did try to un-muddy the legs, but not sure if they're acceptable or not.

Not having seen these before, I really like the last one of the boy best. After looking at the both of them , the legs become a distracting factor for me. That is jmo though! :D

Bottom boy: think about a tighter crop on the top, the extra space pushes him out of the power spot (rule of 3rds) and doesnt add anything

Definitely crop the boy a bit more on the top...and I definitely like the bottom one (tighter crop)--you get a great look at that cute face...really like it.
