    I think the pictures look very good. The main thing I see that you might watch is the white thing behind her head in number two and the car beside her head in number three.

    Very nice start. I like number 1 out of the whole set, that said I see a few problems:

    1. There is a white thing sticking out of her hair above her left ear.
    2. Due to time of day, there's harsh shadow cast on her right shoulder. Perhaps try fill flash next time?
    3. Her bra strap is showing. Perhaps clone it out in PP. It's distracting.
    4. Her heart shape pendant is sideway. A little bit distracting (just nit picking really).

    I'm pretty sure that's the way the pendant is designed to sit.

    I like the 2nd.
    Given a slightly different pose with the same effect would look great on a t shirt.

    Thanks for the nice comments :D
    Yes photo number one her heart necklace is ment to hang like that. I havent edited it at all, only made it B&W, im always worried ill totally screw up a photo.( Someone can have ago If they'd like) Unless its not a very good photo to start off with (like the 2nd one down - It had a horrible background, its a garage with lots of stuff in it, lol, it was a spontanious photo, I was walking behind her and I yelled out "Vanessa POSE!!" LOL! so she turned around and I took it! Ha Ha)
