    Some nice composition there, but that lens isn't sharp enough wide open.

    The lens is sharp enough, it's just that the shutter is way too slow in
    some photos, and I've yet to come to terms in the right balance of
    ISO/Shutter.

    Plus, as for the first image, it was the best I could capture of the little
    guy, and I really wanted him in the set for the benefit of his mother :)

    These are family shots, and - presumably - shots of family members who
    have been photographed many times. The intent doesn't seem to be to
    capture what (name) looked like on December x, 2013. They present a
    different view than what is normally captured in family photos, and
    the result is quite acceptable in my view. The subjects probably
    liked the shots very much because they're a bit different from the
    normal family snapshot.

    #1 is a bit soft, but has appeal for being that way. #2, #3, and #5
    have some distracting white areas that I might have applied the Burn
    tool to, but they still work.

    The only one in the set where I feel Jonas erred is #3 where the lower
    face is very soft and the forehead is too sharp. The subject of that
    one will be thinking of getting Botox shots after seeing that.

    All-in-all, a good set of photos that look completely unposed and
    natural.

    It's not so much that it's soft as that the point of focus is a bit far
    back. The eyes are soft but the outline of the face and ear and the
    fabric on the shoulder are sharp.
    Also one eye is sharper than the other--focus just a little deeper would
    have balanced the eye sharpness and might have softened the forehead a
    little.
    Yep.

  6. Agree.

    However, the highlights on the first three photos draw to much
    attention—at least, they were distracting to me.
