Cut photograph, but a lot of dead space on either side. A tighter crop might have improved this. 5-ClubJuggle

Could use more light

I you wanted the photo to seem happy, you probably shouldn't have made it a black and white picture.
Pretty good-8

Faces are good, background could be cropped.

The background is a bit to dark, her hair gets lost in the shot.

I think this image may have worked better done in a vertical orientation and a little less darkness around the edges... = 5 - jmsetzler

Very nice posing and great smiles. This photo could be even better with some improvements in lighting. The light source appears to be very close so that the boy is lit a bit hot, mom is lit about right. The light falls off very quickly, but not enough to prevent illuminating some background objects. You might try a black sheet behind the subjects if you desire a black background. I also suggest a little bit of fill light and keep the main back a bit more. Nice catch light in the eyes, which is something to look for when using multiple lights (it can be hard to get just right).

wasn't he on the slide last week? It's a beautiful self-portrait. What a handsome couple you are. Nicely done. My only suggestion is to take those two items out of the background. Well lit, nicely composed.

A vertical orientation would have looked better, as there is nothing interesting on either side of the subject. More lighting on the hair would have been good too. Nice pose though, cute kid :)

Nice shot. Maybe a bit dark, or background too dark, but really nice. 8 Swash

Beautiful people, love the tones. His shirt is too bright and her face is a bit dark. Still nice job. Kee
