This is my first post here.. been lurking for a while, have learned much.  Looking to do more portraits, but for now, my best portrait/candid.

Some very nice portraits all around in this post. I am just getting started in portrait work and I have set up a simple Tumblr blog. Any feedback is very welcome. http://portraitsbyjavi.tumblr.com/

I am looking to break away a bit from the typical vertical portrait all the time and include more of the location along with the subject. Currently shooting only outdoors with available light, a 5D MKII 24-700, 85mm and the occasional shot with the pancake 40mm. Sorry if I have broken any rules by posting my tumblr. I am a newbie at posting here also but I feel like I have learned a lot from all of you.

I like the shots :) On a couple of the shots of kids you have a birds POV, and to me that is not optimal, since imho it signalize their child status, as opposed to their individuality.

Best,

Just a couple of minor criticisms:

The pic of Lukas (kid in front of brick wall) could have been framed better so the piece of earth in the lower left corner isn't seen. The lines of brick converging off behind Lukas looks pretty neat but the earth in the corner distracts the eye.

The shot of Avtandil would maybe be better if either the metal structure on the right of shot wasn't there or, better yet, Avtandil was interacting with it - maybe leaning his body against it or just having his hand on it.

Hope that gives you some inspiration.

Best wishes.

Thanks so much for the feedback Quasimodo and GuyF! It is greatly appreciated. I am just getting started so I am trying different things and see what I like and don't like.
All the best!  :)
