Need Critique

Hey everyone,
It's been great reading the advise and critiques of from others. I finally have some time to upload some pictures that I did for some friends. The images brought to me were only 4x5 (or smaller) @ 72dpi in raw form. The ladies wanted 8x10s made out of these. One is a faint sepia tone(I didnt want to get crazy with it) The other is way too much "anti-aging" work that she wanted, Im not happy with it. I would love it if someone would give a critique of my work. Im open for advise. Thanks for your help.

Sandr35, it's a bit hard to judge due to the size of the images, but whatever makes the customer happy, I suppose it's okay - at east for us beginners -

Re: Need Critique

Sandr, I am rather concerned about how you are going to manage to get a passable, print worthy 8x10@ 300dpi (assumably no less than 200dpi) enlargement from your 4x5 72dpi (72 dpi is way too low a resolution for printing) original image files. Can you get a hold of much, much higher res scans of the originals? If I was going to enlarge a 4x5 to 8x10 basically double the size, I would try to scan the original at at least double the resolution that I wish to print. I typically print photographs at a resolution of at least 300dpi so ideally I would be wanting to scan the original image at a resolution of 600 dpi at least.

No this is not passable. I like to scan originals @ 600dpi, but these were only available through poor emails by family and friends that wanted something done. I was just wondering if I was missing a technique in working something this bad. Ill put in some "good" images later on tonight.
Thanks for your advise everyone.

I started putting some images on Flicker this morning of the same problem.
