    You did a really good job. The wind effect is awesome...especially on her dress.

    4 and 6 are my favourite.

    Very very neat.

    I'm really impressed.

    What kind of editing did you do to the shots?

    Thanks man :)

    thank you :)

    Thanks man :)

    Er... I edited them in Lightroom, there's a preset named "Cold Tone". I just added it, then made two exposures. 1 for the background, 1 for the sky. I make sure that the model in the background layer is bright enough 1st. Then I combined both the layers in Photoshop. Then i used curves to darken the whole photo but leaving the model and the foreground bright enough that it wont look unnatural. :)

    Thank you :)

    Haha, yea she does look so. :) thanks!

    thanks!

    These are amazing! Your gf is beautiful and the background and cool feeling really work.

    The only thing I see is that in #5 her arms look a bit weird. I found I was looking at them more than anything else in the picture.

    I'm no pro at critiques, but that one just struck me as odd.
