    The sun and the moon
    An ocean of air
    So many voices
    But nothing is there
    The ghost of you asking me why
    Why did I leave

    I LOVE IT! It produces extremely soft even light. Just point this little piece of "rubbermaid" up and it will light up a room like you won't believe. It's a bit expensive but what the hell, i like it.

    I like the treatment mumbles. I guess you blurred the edges - you've certainly emphasised your subject beautifully.

    Wooohooo, I finally got some feedback! Yeah I did blur the edges a bit and a slight vignette. Thanks man.

    Brian, the first couple look soft except for the eyes. Maybe it's the processing or the compression. Not sure. Everything else is nice about them though. This last one is nice. Everything works well. Maybe I could do without the tree, but it's not that bad. Nice shots!

    The aren't supposed to be soft. I wanted the eyes to be sharp and "pop" out. From what I've been told and have seen by many portrait photographers is that the eyes should always be sharp. They are usually the most important part in a portrait. Thanks for all the critiques.

    I think it's just the DOF. Since there's not a lot of background in the first two shots, IMO it's better to stop down some and get more of the face in focus. Especially if light isn't an issue.

    I agree with that completely.
