My first portraits
Camera: K-7 

A while ago I went out with my boyfriend and took some photos, these are the best from the day. I haven't done any PP except a bit of cropping, all the exif data should still be there too. Any advice appreciated

They're great, I think. The natural lighting, especially on #3, works wonderfully. They're all cropped and composed well, and they have good colors to them. The only thing I can really think of is that I would like to see more separation between the subject and the background in #1, and perhaps to have recomposed to take the branches out of the foreground.

Also like the third - would have done even better with a touch of fill flash, but it could probably be improved in PP as is. Nice candid capture.
