Photoshop: defining a style

Another long break. Hoping once again to be better.

I did an impromptu shoot with Lucy in the yard today. It was a gorgeous day and the light was pretty and at a good angle for some more back lighting. Unfortunately, my background options are snow, asphalt, or dreary bare trees. Here I am just playing with some different editing styles.

Some questions that come up...

Is this part of defining my style?  Is it ok to have a variety of styles like this?

Part of me says,  oh sure, of course.  

But part of me says,  look at these photos on display together...  they aren't cohesive.  They aren't telling a story.  Together they don't work. 

Therefore, in a presentation to a client they should be much more similar in style,  or broken into different clusters.  This is my homework,  due later this week.

What say you?

Interestingly, or perhaps I should say that I find it interesting that the images were all a bit more blue hued in their original state.  Like the one pictured below.  Clearly, I prefer warmer tones when we are talking about a little girl on a winter's afternoon.

And you,  my 3 readers...  how are you? :-)
