    Contrast and blacks too strong for my liking. Do love the third one.

    I really like #2, #3 & #4. I agree that contrast is a little too high for my liking but I'm not the one the photos are for, long as the customers are happy then all good.

    #5 would be great if the kid didn't look like he/she was going to burst out in tears.

    Love the third one! Agree with contrast and balck comments above. Having said that, if thats you and thats what your clients like and pay you for, why change.

    thanks guys

    PP was fairly simple, just exposure, WB, contrast, black and white points to my liking. photos like 2/3 i used curves to accentuate the warm tones of the sun and used a layer mask to control it so its not too over-powering :)

    Love the warmth and radiance being emitted from the photos. I wish I had family photos like that.

    That's me and my daughter in the photos. I really liked how they turned out, even though my daughter was crying for most of the time. Thanks ronnie :)
