    This is my first time posting in the professional gallery and I hope my work is good enough. I just started in April and have only had a few paid shoots. Please be honest and let me know what you think. Thanks! The last photo is probably my favorite but mainly because we don't have a lot of cornfields around my area so I think it's cool. =)

    Nice set.

    I like the light in the first one but her left eye (on our right) is a bit too dark IMO.

    I like the last one as well...but something looks off. Her face & eyes don't seem to be as sharp as they should be. It might just be because of the resizing and compression but I'm not sure.

    Thanks... you're right about the eye... I didn't notice that.

    I did notice that her face looked soft on this post but I don't think it looks like that on the original. I have that photo on my blog and it looks much more clear.

    Wow Richelle! I visited your site and I was kinda expecting okay pics since you said that you just started last April but I love your work. Seems like you've been doing this for a while. I love the poses and colors! Great work!!!

    Thanks! I've been working on it a lot and took a class taught by some really good photographers. I'm glad to hear my work is paying off! =)

    Very nicely done, especially given the short time you've been doing this. Great job. Two comments; the first and last images both have a blade of grass/leaf across her chest; minor, but slightly distracting. Also, generally a good idea to avoid showing under garments in formal portraits.
