    #1 - Very nice shot. Her face could use a touch more lighting though.

    #2 - Well composed overall. To me, it looks like the subject of the shot is her arms. Use some more PP work to bring the highlight levels down some.

    #3 - This is my favorite of them all. Nice work!

    #4 - Cropped a little to tight for my tastes and watch the levels on her face.

    #5 - Very nicely done also. This shot could be the best of the bunch if you brought her face a little back in line lightwise with the rest of the shot.

    Overall, these are nicely done shots. The poses are interesting and the backgrounds add to the shots without discracting you from the model. The colors are exceptional, but the focus seems to be a little soft in some of them. Keep up the good work!

    I think they are all pretty good, the only thing I see that bothers me is how her face is leaning on her arm. Her skin around here eye is being streched out and up. But I do think they all look good.

    they all could use a little fill on her face. 3,4,5 are underexposed, nothing a little bit of ps couldn't fix.

    My favourites are the last two- the others seem slightly awkward...

    I agree with noescape...more relaxed, natural poses would have been better.
