Thanks, but there's no great secrets to these...!
The first two were processed from a700 RAW originals (initial file size of about 12Mg) and processed in Bibble and PSP X2. Can't quite remember full details for #3.
I tend to crop in camera, which means getting in quite close even with a 90-105 lens. I often use fill flash (with a little negative EV) -- either the onboard or a Metz or Minolta unit. And I handhold, adjusting aperture to keep the shutter speed from going too low. The camera's inbuilt SSS sure helps a lot, as my hands are not the steadiest.
Here's another one, from the 7D and a RAW original.
