Here are my humble comments
1. 3667 is the best for my taste. The car (?) in the background could be removed.
2. 07742 lacks sharpness. If focus was good and the picture was sharp that would have been the best in the series.
3. 3649 would have been even better with a cleaner background. The photo frame distracts a bit.

Thanks for sharing

My 350D is always set to center point focus and I tried to always focus on the eyes. Any reason why the focus would have changed?

If you are going to do it that way, you should point the center sensor at the eyes, halfway push the shutter, move the camera, and press it the rest of the way. Otherwise, every time you push that shutter after the initial focus, it will refocus where you are telling it to (in this case, the center of the photo).

Unless you focus, switch it to manual, and then DON'T MOVE AN INCH LOL.

Actually, what you are telling me makes sense because the one photo where her far eye was in focus, is where your center focus point would have been.

You can also change the focus point from the center to one end or the other (depending on which way you turn the camera) when shooting in portrait orientation or you can just let the camera choose where to focus and half press the shutter until it lands where you want it.

Tedious, but it works :)

That's exactly what I did, haha. It's actually exactly what I always do. Focus and recompose.

Then after you focus, either don't move your finger off of that shutter (because every time you will have to re-do it or it will jump on you), or switch it over to Manual focus and don't move. Forward, backward, anywhere LOL

Wow!

I think you did great!

And turn it to one shot focus... if you have it in Auto, it may switch to AI-servo if you move the camera too fast.

Also, might want to switch from center point to whichever focus point is closest to the eye to minimize camera movement after focusing.
