    So I was walking around with a friend and decided to shoot some pics of her.

    I know she's stage center in most of these, instead of "rule of thirds", but she is the main focus of the photos... I want some critique on what I could've done better.

    Yes, it's cold out in the pics, haha. Any C&C would be great:
    (oh and I have two monitors. On one the pics are light, and on one they are dark, how do I know which monitor to trust?)

    #2 This photo is dark on one of my screens and light on the other.

    #3 I know her head lighting is a little sloppy on this one, I got lazy... I had to do a lot of dodging and burning and now it looks surreal.

    You can't really trust any monitor unless you calibrate it...and to do that properly, you need a hardware calibration device along with software.

    Yeah... I've read everyone talk about monitor calibration for color. I didn't realize that handles the brightness as well. I'll def look into that... thanks.

    any C&C on the pics?

    Gotta love Lake Shore Drive. It looks like you shot them today, it's pretty darn nice out! I wish I could slide out of work to get over to the shore for some pics...

    I like the composition in them.

    Does the white balance look off on the 4th one.

    I miss living in Chicago. I posted a photo a few days back of a row boat on north ave. beach late day in late spring.
    your pictures are good, i shy away from shooting models outside when there is still a chill in the air to avoid the red noses. but she looks like a great model and i am certain that if you stick with her we are in store for a heap of cool photos.

    It's actually not the white balance, but the fact that I played with some colors, so it has that tint of orange.

    But good observation, I was concerned about that also...

    Any other C&C's?

    I like #4 the best. Very interesting/unique pose. For some reason, something is making me go strait to the girl. Can't quite figure it out....
