    Oh, these are really nice. She is very beautiful, and her eyes truly are something else! Wow. I like all four of these, but best of all I like the third, with the red door offering such a nice contrast to the blue of her eyes.
    Wow, it must be really special to be working with such beautiful people!

    Great use of colour, lighting and outfits to give variation - excellent work!

    I really like #1, the face has an ethereal "feel" to it... how'd you do that? Sorry if it's obvious, I'm bit of a noob... :)

    The lighting looks great in all of these. And she looks very comfortable.

    beautiful subject! You can really tell when your photographing a friend, they look so comfortable and it genrally makes for a better pic. And thats what you've done here! I agree with woodsac, the lighting in all of these is indeed awsome :)

    Well I am not sure what that word means, but this is what I did...

    I added just a touch of diffuse glow to just her face, and then went to photo filter and warmed it slightly. (CS2 Photoshop) Then I DIDNT sharpen the picture. Almost every picture out of my 20D needs a little sharpening, but this one I left soft.

    BTW, this shoot was the de-virginizing of my new Canon L 70 - 200 USM.

    Thanks everyone for looking.

    The first 3 are on the shaded side of a small shed on a sunny day, and the last is with my hot studio lights with camera white balance set to tungstun.

    nice job with these.

    eyes look a bit too white in the third one though, and maybe the fourth one...too much post work perhaps?

    #1 and #2 are the best in my opinion, although I wish her feet weren't cut off in the second one.
