    They look pretty nice.. They'd look nicer if they weren't shot under such harsh sunlight... Try it on an overcast day, or in the early morning or late evening. The shadows of her eyelashes on her face in 1, 3 and 4 are a little weird..those would go away with the different light.

    Sometimes you cant pick the lighting conditions to adapt this one use a fill flash close to the same strength as the main light.. Slightly under is good to. Over is not unless you expose for it and ignore the main light...

    The last two are nice. You have some pretty bad sun on the first two. However, I'm digging your comps here. Keep at it. :)

    I know I'm probably going to get chewed out for going off topic here, but did anyone else notice how dangerously thin this girl is? In 2 and 4 especially...you can see every bone. I don't know how close you are to this girl, but you may want to consider having a talk with her about anorexia. She looks sickly thin to me.

    yes I know, Im very close although Im 5 years older. I finally got her to get help. I have sleepless nights and tears in my eyes even looking at her, but thankfully she took my advise and is seeing someone now. I love her very much and I will do anything to help her and I hope that again someday she will we be the fun and happy girl she used to be.

    Well, bowronfam, I must say that was the VERY FIRST thing for me to notice, too, more than any light problems or any composition assets these photos may have.
    So, virenko, I am happy to hear that she has finally sought herself some help, she does need it by the look of her truly emaciated body.

    I am not sure I like the use of a wide angle on the first, making her forehad HUGE, but I quite like her pose and your POV in the second (but that shows her skinniness SO much, :cry: )

    With the light in her eyes, making them sparkle a bit, 3 would be really nice!

    thanks, I want to make pictures that are a little different, Im not trying to make a picture perfect. When I was taking the pictures I saw the eyelashes, hers are long and I tryed to get a shadow on her face, everybody's taste is different I guess. about the sunlight, I have trouble finding the right light, I think they are a bit harsh to, although the last one was taken after 5 pm. Light is my struggle, this was the first time I used my new camera a canon 350D (totally happy with it :p)
    Thanks for the advice I will keep everything in mind for the next time :)

    You can see it in all of them... If she has a problem, as a human being, you should try to get her some help...

    oh my... she looks so young... like... 12 years! I think you should work on poses. sometimes it is better to have a whole person in a crop rather than to crop it too tight...
