    I love your style. It's a lot like mine

    the one thing I will say, (it's what DH tells me all the time ), and please don't take this the wrong way because I don't think this, is that some people may find them over edited. DH hates when I mess with the pictures. I on the other hand, love it! It's a matter of taste

    keep up the great work!

    I am NO professional, but I like them! I don't have any detailed critique, I will just pass on some advice I have been given.

    I think you do have to be careful (general you) about the camera tilt thing. If you do it too much it looks like you are trying to overcompensate for lack of actual talent, and if you don't do it correctly the picture just looks lopsided. Creative angles are good, the same tilt over and over again is bad. Not that you are doing that, I just know it's an easy habit to get into.

    Also, be careful not to cut people off at a joint. It takes away from the continuity of the picture and stops the eye from following the subject.

    Last, I was once told to make sure there is a "white" and a "black" in every photo. That is a quick way to get a good contrast and prevent the photo from looking too flat.

    I also dig your style. I like the processed look, as long as it is done well and I think you do it very well! The only one I thought looked a little off is the black and white group pic in Family because I couldn't see any discernible white so it looked a little flat. I think you have great composition though, and seem to follow the rule of thirds when it looks good but you aren't afraid to break away from it to make the picture more interesting. I like!!

    You're improving!

    I'll echo Trina on the camera tilt and cutting off at the joints. I'm not really a fan of the over processed look. Whites are blown and colors are often way over saturated (and I like saturated) and detail in the image, especially the subjects, is lost. I like actions as they can simplify postprocessing, but not over doing it.

    Just a tip, be careful where you place your subjects or snap photos so you can avoid harsh lighting and shadows on the face and body because it can be distracting.
