    You're lucky to have such a beautiful subject to work with! ;)

    #1 is a bit dark in the face for me, but I like the shots alot.

    I would be aware of the background a bit more - #3 would be awesome but the lamp appears to be coming from her head... or at least pointing at her... it's a bit distracting.

    I like #2 the best, but it looks like your shadow is on her feet... again a bit distracting.

    They are certainly great shots... keep them coming! :thumbup:

    1.) I like this one the best. But, I'd try to clone out some of the hair. I think normally some hair blowing in the wind could work, but this just looks messy and it's really distracting my eye away from her face.
    2.) Pay a little more attention to your posing. It looks like she is an amputee in this one. And she looks distracted and is messing around with her skirt.
    3.) I'd rather see more of her face. She doesn't necessarily need to look at the camera (although I think I would prefer it) but you definitely can't see enough of her.

    Very pretty girl. You are lucky!:wink:

    Thanks for the comment!
    On picture 1, i don't like to post my Post Procesed pictures because then i wouldn't be able to ask for C&C, because the picture was altered... IMO, i should be sharring the pictures, the way i took them, as this is a "photography" forum and not a Photoshop one ;) But i totalle agree with you, cloning is needed! (or WAS needed since i've already don it LoL)

    2. this actually wasn't posed :) i just took a shot of her while she thought i was changing lenses hehe

    3. Yeah, i know what you mean by not seeing enough of her face! Good tip!

    Thanks for the comment!
