Here's another graduation shot (after party at a neighbor's house) with the 5D Mark III and the Canon 1.4 50mm.

Nice shot. Constructive criticism. Could probably use a little work on the exposure of your subject. Looks very natural and clean though. Well done

RLPhoto - this is for 5D Mark III posts, not graduation posts.  You may wish to repost your pics elsewhere some may get the wrong impression that your pics were taken with a 5D Mark III.  Thanks

Cgdillan - sure always open to constructive criticism.  Can you be more specific though?  I don't see any over or underexposure areas and subject lighting looks OK on this end.  The skin tone of the male subject is a bit more pink than average but that's how he appears in real life.  Note his girlfriend's skin tone, quite different and both within the same pic.  Also, the pic is in fact on flickr, known for slight destruction of the photos..will await your comments though .

Done. Didn't notice it was under 5d3 sample section.

There is a neat trick to getting skin tones to perfect exposure.

Cinema had a chart for exposing B&W film to certain tones on a stop chart online somewhere. It shows complete black to complete white and explains each step is used for on set.

Anyway, for Caucasian skin tones, its exposure in B&W was close to absolute white in old films. So when I'm processing for skin tones in color, I occasionally dip into b&w to really check lumanance tones in my subject and tune my exposure there. Flip over into color mode again, and perfect skins tones but sometimes blown highlights I tweak out later.

There is definitely nothing blown out. but i think i would have pulled some of the shadows out a bit in the whole picture and more so on the two subjects. I might also add a very slight vignette that is almost not noticeable. but I've noticed that it  helps bring focus a viewers attention to the middle/faces.

i hope you don't mind but i downloaded the image and threw it into camera raw. i also everyone has their own taste in editing but this is closer to what i would have done. just my opinion. =-) i think bringing the background out helps it feel less empty behind them.

maybe i'm missing the point. if this shot is out of the camera then it looks great. a very good starting point. but with some post work it could really pop a bit more.

I think you nailed it on the head.  My point was pretty much trying to illustrate an "out of the camera" look and feel which I thought was incredible.  I didn't do much post process on this one for the latter reason.  Glad you took the photo though and showed its further possibilities.  Me personally, there's a bit too much emphasis on the background which detracts from the main subject although the subjects have more pop to them than before.  So in fact there are some aspects of the post process performed that I do like - thanks for the tips and suggestion.
Thanks
