Roger, I think your ISO of 320 is very adequate for most of your portrait work. But why not try an ISO of 120 or 80? While the subject is sitting still and all your lighting properties are as they are a lower ISO will definitely give you more definition into the highlights and shadows of your subjects. I am by no means trying to tell you your business, simply making suggestions to encourage better detail and color saturation, if only by one or two points. I am from the old film school of the lower the ASA, (ISO), of any particular film or setting, the better saturation you get. I have absolutely no complaints of the portraits you provide, especially in the color saturation of your photos. Only trying to make a small suggestion, which I hope is not out of line. Good stuff.

Ron, I do see a differenece in the textures. I like the normal much better! The "topazed" filter, in my opinion, makes the edges much too sharp. Just my opinion.

Ron: Different! I like! However you did the cloning of the buildings into the girl worked out well. Good stuff!

Bry, unusual and different, but very cool shot of this great heron. The highlights of the bird against the dark and somewhat blurred background makes this a remarkable capture. I really like this over most egret/heron photos. Good job!

Lois, maybe a tad bit too highly oversaturated because I see the red bleeding in certain areas. Out of a scale of 100 I give this a 99. Excellent flower capture!

Roger, I cannot suggest one single little think to enhance this photograph. Lovely lines, beautiful model, absolutely GREAT lighting! You're the master!

Alan, you took on a real challenge here! The face and skin of the subject are perfectly exposed. Unfortunately the red above the subject got burned out. Plus... red is the hardest of colors to hold as a highlight part of the photo. But then if you exposed for the red, the other colors were have been under exposed. Still, a beautiful and very colorful photograph. The only way to have got around this and show all colours in the best of saturations would have been to shoot several bracketed photos from under exposed to over exposed. Only problem there... Who's got time to do that on a subject such as this? Good luck on the next carnival!

Ron, I had to take three quick looks at this photo before discovering that the guy in front was NOT a part of the background scenery. His clothes suggests almost a ghostly image in the photo. I too believe the bride is indeed the center of attention in this photo because she stands out so much against the other two subjects. Great shot. B&G should love it!

Ines, whatever the other commenters said... I like it. Beautiful scenery!
