    Something different for me

    Yep...............This is my first post that didn't pertain to wildlife.

    I met this couple while photographing deer in the park, and they asked if i would take their picture and email it to them. I know absolutely nothing about portraiture, or how to properly edit one. So all critique is welcome.
    This is what i came up with, what do you think?

    I think you nailed it, Steve. All four of them!

    I'd go ahead and bang it out to them!

    Thanks terry. I just gave it the basic edit i give the wildlife photos, except i didn't add any contrast or saturation to the faces, and toned the reds out of the skin. Not shure what is proper, just went with what i thought looked good.

    Great job, Steve. I wouldn't know that you don't normally do this type of photography.

    I would be thrilled to have you make a family portrait for me.
