My constructive criticism would be that the compositions could be stronger. It's very subjective and tricky to explain and I'm not a big fan of rules. But it seems to me like all the frames have a certain amount of dead space that just kind of sits there. Ideally I like my backgrounds to interact a bit with, but not distract from the subject.

Next time you're in Lightroom, maybe hit the "R" key and try doing a bit of cropping. I used to be very purist about printing the full frame - thought of cropping as a cop-out. That approach can certainly be good exercise, but nowadays, if I can pull a 5-star print-worthy scene from a 3-star full frame, I don't hesitate.

HTH - keep shootin'!

He he. I agree with everything you say, but when I got to your example I prefered the full frame! We all look for different things in images I suppose.
