    Something wrong with the site or something wrong with your photography?

    Both. If I need to put the images in a different place or something.

    She's people so you are doing fine as far as the site is concerned. IMHO.

    As for your photos, I like the idea but level your horizons. Tilted horizons rarely add anything and in this case they don't look like they were tilted intentionally.

    Two, when you include the sun in the photo, you need to make sure the shadows make sense. And in this case they don't. The strongest ones come from your lights, not from the sun. Yet, your model is still pretty dark in most of the shots.

    Three, there is no good reason why your model's hands are cut off at the top in the first one. Or so close to the top anyway. You are in a wide open space and there should be some space there.

    Cheers. Will be looking for more of your work in the future.

    Okay, well I fixed the horizons on theses ones.

    As for the shadows it's a little difficult to control them but I'll watch out for them next time.

    The reason I'm cropped so tightly on the first one is because I don't have a wider lens, so I worked with what I had. And this was the best on of the group, her hand is fairly close, but you can still see space above it.

    Most of them were light with an octabox (softbox) from above and just a generic fill light. The lights were alienbees, and the camera was a D700 with Sigma 50mm.

    I LOVE this set! The last one is my favorite by far. The first one I feel like you need to fix what I believe is her skirt right by her butt? Not sure what's going on there but it's distracting. Other than that those these are really awesome.

    Thanks, yes the dress was having issues, just because it was super windy out there.

    Beautiful set. The dancer/model and the location are perfect. 1 and 2 are my favs.
