    So im working on a new series for a book. These are just a few I did tonight to test out one of my ideas. C&C as always

    #1 is the best, but the elbow is too much. I like the fact that it turns into a completely different photo if you crop it like this:

    By the way you're getting much better at processing, or shooting, or both. ;)

    i agree that #1 is the strongest shot in this set. i also don't like the elbow, but i don't know if i like this crop though.

    my other 2cents:
    do a reshoot. leave the arm out of it all together. maybe light the hat some? maybe color? maybe one with the hair tucked under the hat?

    I like the crop because it disconnects the arm from the body. So although you know it's connected, it also looks as if it could be someone else reaching into the frame. Giving the viewer something to think about makes for a much more interesting shot than "oh, I see she's holding the hat."

    I like the first one just as presented, it fits with the rest of the series. Except for the last one, all have two prominently lit areas.

    Nice work as always.

    On a more basic level, I don't know if I'm really feeling the glove in the one photo. It kind of competes with your eyes for my attention (but maybe its supposed to?)

    Anyway, that's my only suggestion. Other than that they seem nice.
