    Some nice work, C&C per req:

    1. A nice casual pose, good expression, but the hair over her right eye is very distracting.

    2. Another really nice, happy expression, agree it would have been better with the foot. Addtionally, I'd like to see a little more space image right. She looks like she's about one step from walking out of the image.

    3. A little mid-tone rich, and again you have the subject posed too close to the edge. Ideally, we'd like to see her looking into the image, rather than out of it. I would suggest having her posed on the other side of the frame, or looking to her left.

    Overall, you've got some really good ideas and your work is technically sound, but with room for improvement in posing and composition. Looking forward to seeing more.

    Just my $00.02 worth - your mileage may vary.

    1.:thumbup:

    2. & 3. I'm not crazy about the composition.

    4. Too smooth.

    My 2 cents worth, also.

    Why is it when some people give CC they refer to themselves as "we".

    While I find that the images are a little too "gray".

    Girl looking out of the picture in 3 works really well. In MY opinion.

    Just sayin.

    Yeah... Agree (for the first time ever) with Bace. I like three's composition, and that makes it my favourite.

    You say it like I'm never right?

    Shame. (p.s. thanks :)...i think)

    One more thing, what are you using to convert to B+W? Desaturation? Grayscale?

    I love the spirit of the model in #2 and the composition of #3. Beautiful girls, both of you. : )

    You might wanna try a Channel Mixer Layer. Check off Monochrome and play with the color sliders till you get the look you like.

    As mentioned the images you've posted are great just a little to much gray.

    Let us know how it goes!
