Mother and Daughter
Lens: Sigma 17-70 Camera: K200D Photo Location: Perth ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/90s Aperture: F4.5 

This was just a random shot of some friends, I am happy with the way it turned out but any C and C is welcome.
Shot in RAW with some minor touchups for skin blemish's.
Cheers Ian

I like it. I think the composition is good, nice smiles, etc. I am wondering if a subtle Vignette would help darken the background and draw your attention to the subject a bit more (by subtle, I mean a Vignette that is there, but not notable unless you are really looking for it). Overall I like it, though.

If the daughter was looking towards the camera, (ever so slightly) it would be the "money shot"

Hi I have this one with them both looking at the camera but I liked their expressions more in the first one, Thank you both for your comments.
Cheers Ian

Agreed. Or if the mom was looking where the daughter's looking.

#2 get both looking the same way but is a bit too dark. If you could lighten it up to where #1 is you would really have a keeper

Lots of good feedback already. The one thing that bugged me about the first photo was the cropping. Empty space on the right, and you've cropped the mother on the left. This is better in the second image (or you have more scope to crop from both sides), but there are the other issues that have already been raised.

Thanks for the comments, Didn't leave myself much to work with re cropping, only cropped some off of the top of original.

Yup, that's what I meant. I probably should have said composition instead of cropping.
