    I took these for a photo class. The middle one is the one that I included in my final project, but I'm torn between the 2nd and 3rd as being my favorites from the shoot. The first one just feels little too anonymous.

    They look a little too grainy...unless that was your purpose. Were they shot on film and scanned? That would explain it. I think that a little bit more contrast may help...but I like the soft muted tones for this subject.

    I think I like the first one...maybe best, but at least as much as the others.

    I like the diagonal lines of light...but I'm not a fan of how they are blocked by her arms...leaving a dark spot on her shins/legs. Maybe you could have rotated her toward the light a bit...but still maintain the moody side lighting.

    I agree with big mike in they look grainy and I would go a bit more with contrast... but thats just me. I like the second and third the most. I think it is the ability to see here face that draws me in more.
