    Man.. #2 really pops. I've never used the word 'pop' in relation to a photo but that's what this does. I like the lighting in them all. I'd actually soften #3 a little.

    I bet she likes these.

    I think they were all 35/1.4, probably somewhere between 1/100 - 1/200 at ISO400.

    I love #3. #2 looks like she got an insane look to her. It gives me the creep.

    Pretty girl.

    The processing in #1 is a lot brighter than in #2. In #1 her skin looks to have a lot of blown spots. I could be wrong. Also, the blue is so much more vibrant in the first shot than in the second. I don't think the skin tones look natural in the color shots, and the backgrounds are distracting. Maybe a different crop on #2 so she's not so centered? The light on the right side of the photo is also very distracting.

    I love #1, the colors, her eyes, would really like to know what pp you are using. 2 has a very insane look. The eyes look great but the rest of her face is like a deer caught in headlights. 3 should be softened a bit than it will be amazing!

    btw, what kind of camera are you using?
