critique and advice requested.

On 4 July, I had an opportunity to do some impromptu portraits for a good friend's brother and his boyfriend.  I do a lot of photography for the Army, but 90% of the work I've done has been ambient-light photography or on-camera-flash work. After my most recent deployment I bought some PCB Einstein lights.  The following were from my shoot with them, and it was my first time photographing a couple.

Camera:  Nikon D2Xs
Lenses: 17-55mm f/2.8 DX, 85mm f/1.4 D, and 60mm f/2.8 G

The photos were shot in my friend's living room in front of the fireplace with a standard 10-foot, white ceiling.

23mm @ f/ 11, ISO 100.  Light is camera left with a 20-degree grid

85mm, f/ 11, ISO 100. Light is camera left with a 10-degree Grid

85mm, f/ 10, ISO 100. Light is camera left with a 7" conical reflector, no grid.

Thank you all for your time and consideration.
