Hi all,

Here's another engagement session. We decided to simply walk around one of Boston's central arteries. Apparently, it also doubles as a miniature park.

As always, C&C is strongly encouraged. Thanks!

Some really nice shots here. A couple suggestions. One, shooting wide open can create some very nice bokeh, but a short DOF doesn't always work. 8 and 21 and 29 are examples where a wider DOF would have worked nicer, in my opinion.

Also, again just my opinion, but when you shoot a silhouette, have them going in for a kiss, but still separate so their noses don't blend together.

You've got some really nice shots here, and I'm sure your client will be very happy.

Not a bad set overall, but I would take out some images. I think the focus is too far off on some with the shallow DOF and would remove those. The ones with the cab don't quite work for me, especially 16 because the focus is on the cab rather than the couple.

The skin smoothing seems too strong on the last ones taken at night.

It can be hard with some couples, but it would help to have more interaction with each other in the photos, like there is in 18 and 25. It seems like they are looking off into the distance too often.

One other little thing is his arm in 24 is awkward. With just a little adjusting that could be a great photo because the composition and lighting are awesome.

I'm sure they will enjoy the photos.
