    (Its been a while since I posted but if anyone could let me know how I post pics from Picasa that would be great. I know I have to put in some but I dont remember where)

    Just as the title says. I picked up a 1.4 50 MM and a 17-70 sigma and had a friend of mine come shooting. I have the rest of them on my picassa web albumns so if you want to check them out feel free. Im just going to post a few I really like. Please let me know how I can improve, thanks guys\gals

    I suggest you follow my example and post your pics, replace the ( ) with [ ]. few people will follow links. My only critique (no comment on composition, exposure etc, I'm not experienced enough to critique that) is that exposed bra in that first pic, looks unprofessional and snapshot-esque, shouldn't be hard at all to clone it out in PS, would probably look best to clone the shirt to cover the bra, rather than clone her skin to replace it. Next time, though, it'd be best if you made sure that details like that were fixed before the shot.

    not bad, a couple look a little underexposed and the crops could be a bit tighter. As stated above i think you will get alot more feedback posting the images directly in this thread rather than the links

    Pic 1-agree with photoshopping out the bra, I think the light at the base of the column in the background is distracting
    Pic 2-Very well done, nice lighting, dramatic composition.
    Pic 3-I like the composition, nice lighting, I think that pose only really works for somebody with absolutely no body fat at all. Your friend is extremely attractive, and I'm not a stick figure kind of guy, but the harsh truth is that leaning back on her arms like that is making a couple fat folds.
    Pic 4-Stunning. I love the out of focus background, the positioning of the model, dramatic lighting, everything is well done. The only thing I would change is to clone out the spot of her bra that is showing
