    The first one is too distracting for me... 2 and 3 are a bit soft, which isn't always bad for portraits but in this case I don't care for it. It looks like her hat is in perfect focus but that puts the focal plane just in front of her eyes.

    I think #5 is neat.

    I love #4!!! Awesome shot.

    Great first set - keep up the good work

    Thanks for the comments guys. I really enjoyed this shoot. I agree with you that #3 is a bit too soft. However I kinda like the way it is on #2. I dont know thats just kinda my taste.

    The focus is a bit off in some and - sorry - it bothers me a lot ... I can see where it is on the thing behind her in 2 and on the rim of the hat in 3 and it just feels like it does not really belong there.

    I really like her expression in 4 and it is a pity that droplet passed right in front of her eye the moment you took the pic, but oh well, I still like that one AAAAANNNNND the reflection portrait in 5 (!!!!!) very much.

    Nice thing to be TAUGHT how to take photos. I never was...

    i agree with the majority here that 2 and 3 are too soft.

    in the first one there are many distracting details ... having the background in B&W could help.

    nice boots in the last one ;)
