    I would love to have your constructive criticism on every photo I have posted, alot of time was put into shooting them and Post-production on them

    The portrait was done with a standard mirror umbrella, a softbox as a fill light and another soft box as background light.

    thank you in advance!

    Comment for #2: Her left hand is a bit hot. Even on the left half of her face it appears that your key light was a bit too strong. Concept looks good to me.

    With so many clothes on it's important to pay attention to the detail. I'm not sure if you intentionally did that but her right, pink strap of the hood is going back to her head underneath the gray hood. I think it would have looked better to have both straps hang down.

    I'd also may tone down that red saturation of the red/pink sweater with the hood unless you wanted it to pop like that. I think her expression makes the image and not the color. Pushing the reds takes away the strength of her expression.

    I can't read the EXIF but I think you shot that with a 50mm or something relatively wide. I need more images to make a better judgement but I think you've got some lens distortion going on - not dramatic but a tiny bit. I'd say it would look better at around 100mm or 150mm.

    Her expression works. Hair looks good. Good skin tone, maybe too much yellow. Try also a tighter crop.

    #1 I'd make the shot square and clone the little petal out in the center despite being imperfect. Colors are fantastic. I'd have liked it a bit sharper but still great shot.

    #3 I'm not too fond of silhouetted shots, especially if it's "just" a bird on a tree. It would have to be an exotic bird or something to knock me off my chair.

    #4 Composition is good but that's about it. Not a very exciting scenery.

    #5 I think the shots of garbage and grungy urban scenes work rarely well. I think there you need to involve more the surrounding to give it some setting. Too tight for me. Also not very exciting.

    actually the bird photo was made around late afternoon, thinking of the crow poem ( if you know what i mean)

    anyone else?
