You'll get some serious looks here, and if you've been really naughty, maybe Andrew will cruise by

It's funny how naughty, below the belt and my name get tossed around together.

I'll have a thorough once-over a bit later tonight, but for CrystalGSD, when there's a lot of snow or sand in the photo - even in the background - try giving +1 or 2 to the exposure compensation. Play around with it. Taking two or three shots varying exposure is free and takes very little time.

Lastly, for Red Chrome, regarding what Lizmo said about the green sign; changing where you're standing before the image helps. In this case though, some selective desaturation in the yellow channel in that specific area will also eliminate the distraction. Your depth of field is perfect here.

Sometimes you gotta look "below the belt."

Yes, this... I'll look more carefully but I HIGHLY recommend not using FB as a host. It destroys photo quality.

Like others have said, FB destroys photo quality. I'd suggest Flickr.

I didn't pay much attention to the other photos, but this one caught my eye. There is a green sign in the background. Eyes will be drawn to this detail and attention will be taken away from the focus of the picture - the people. Watch your backgrounds. It's a hard thing to learn, and it took a careful eye to point this out in my pictures over a time period for me to start picking up on it by myself. Suggestion: slightly change your angle so the little girl's head covers the green sign.

I'm paying $4/month to have smugmug host my photos. I used flickr but found it difficult to post to forums...multiple steps before I could copy the URL to the discussion boards. Smugmug has a gallery style layout, and I can zip through them pretty quickly.

I think the photos look good but if you worked in manual, you could really fine tune them.

I love Flickr to host. I thought it was a pain before but I've gotten used to it and it takes me no time at all to post to the forum or my blog.
