My sister just had a graduation this summer, so over the weekend I did some portraits for her. Comments and critique welcomed!

I like them all ... the third I like but would love to see her eyes

Thanks for the feedback - I definitely agree, even though it didn't occur to me until you mentioned it. I do have a couple of similar shots where her eyes are visible.

OK, here are a couple versions of a similar shot with eyes visible. She likes the vignette effect, although I'm not so crazy about it in this particular photo.




Also played around with the saturation on this photo, and sharpened the flip-flops to make them pop a little more.
