    It’s hard to tell from this resolution, but I can’t see if the subjects are perfecly sharp or not. It’s tough to get background blur though, even at f/2.8, when you’re a great distance from your subject yet they are a very short distance in front of their background. However as long as you perfectly nail focus, it will look OK in print.

    My only other critique is that the guys seem to be a bit too angled inward; I’d like to see more of their open shoulders, whereas the girls are looking to be at mostly good angles. Other than that, lighting and editing is solid, though maybe a flash could have helped, if you had been able to put a flash in the middle of the lake LOL. Sometimes you just can’t, of course.
