    Very nice images!

    Waitin on the Women is well posed, good composition, my only concern is it looks over processed to me, to much technique (saturation, structure).

    Love party pooper, technically well done, great expression, a simply nice portrait.

    What Cookie is my least favorite of the group. Just lacks impact and the technical quality of Party Pooper.

    Good Ole Boys is a neat concept, good posing, good story. Lighting is a little harsh but you handled it well.

    Couple leaning on the car, again a cool idea, the contrast is very hard, I would love to have seen the camera angle different or the bride turned away from the camera more. The current angle (shooting straight into the body) widens her out in the hips and body area. The highlights in the windshield behind the bride are distracting as well.

    The young lady in the field is very pretty, beautiful expression, and you handled the dress which is very busy nicely. I feel the burning in around the image is a little heavy handed and the skin tones are a little too warm. This type of image would look much nicer if it weren't over saturated keeping it a little more subtle to with the mood.

    Overall really enjoy your story telling and sense of design in you images.

    Thank you so much for your feedback! I will tweak them a little and take out What Cookie? and the one of the couple on the car.

    Gail, Dave gave you some great advice. On the technique you are using Lucis, Tonal Contrast...whatever it may be has given you that "halo" that surrounds every line of contrast. Be careful of that when applying these techniques. It's just like using salt and pepper while cooking... a little is good for the dish...too much ruins it.

    One comment, on Good Ol' Boys, the first thing my eye goes to is those neon green sunglasses. Might want to make them black + white, the color doesn't seem to match with the title or setting.

    waiting for the women...have you considered fliping this image and fixing the can so you can tell you flipped it? All eyes lead out of the frame. Just a thought...

    Thanks for all the CC! Jeff, I have not tried that, but I will, if I have the skill to fix the cans in short time. In all honestly though, and I have thick skin, are any of these, or could any of these be merit worthy?

    Ok, I am sticking with the original orientation of Waiting On The Women. Here is Emily toned down a bit.
