    Hey,

    I'm an art student and I had to make portraits. In the end I only have to have 1 good portrait, but I currently have 56 pictures I could use and I'm having a hard time selecting.

    I know 56 is a lot of pictures but I'd appreciate it if someone could take a quick look and give me some advice on which pictures are good and which are not, or what I could do to make them better. I'm just a beginner...

    So, I don't know if we're allowed to link to another website, but I guess 56 is a bit too much to show here so:

    EDIT: Since it's not viewable without permission I've made a small selection, so C&C on these pictures might be helpfull for other pictures too.

    Take a look at the Professional Portraits and Weddings section on this site at the top where it says Tips for Portraits.

    Looking through some of those tips, you should have a better idea of how your portraits fit with some of the criteria mentioned. Then pick a few and submit asking for a critique. In considering the value of the critiques, the more specific the comments are on elements of the your portrait, the greater the likelihood of other experienced photographers seeing the same thing.

    I made a small selection, but I also changed some settings on my space so it might work now...

    Out of the photos that you posted the first holds my attention the most.

    Same here. I like that one best. 2 and 3 look pretty noisy and her foot is chopped off in the last. I do like the vibrant colors in the last one, though.

    If picking one it would be the first photograph.

    Your white balance in 2&3 are blinding and puts off a haze.

    4&5 look very posed.

    6. has the foot chopped.

    your first photo seems the most natural & well composed.
