Mom & Dad
Lens: 50mm Camera: *istD ISO: 200 Aperture: F4 

Couple from Christmas morning. Flashed bounced off ceiling, plus some natural. How did I do? I have a hard time judging lighting, but I don't think it's too bad.

Mum has been placed too close to the wall for my liking. There are multiple distracting elements in the background that compete for attention in the frame.

Dad's sufficiently far enough away from the wall but now has a long brass-coloured bar streaming from his face. He's also shoved perhaps a touch too far to the left of the frame.

But good exposures - decent lighting and well focused. Consider PP work to boost the contrast and skin tones.
