    I like them for the most part, numbers one and four are my favorite.

    1- No complaints about this one, I really like it. Depth of field is perfect, and so is the lighting.
    2- There is something about the perspective that I don't quite like (just my opinion, of course)
    3- I would crop out the left side just because I'm not a fan of it being perfectly centered.
    4- I like the composition and her position, but I would've liked the shot alot more if there wasn't that shadow underneath her right eye.

    I'm really not sure if I have room to critique portraits because I've never tried it myself, but those are just some of my thoughts.

    Nice job :)

    only problem is the 1st and 3rd...they're perfectly centered...but even then it works pretty well for the first one... other than that....extremely beautiful girl, and great backdrop. GREAT job!

    Campbell gave some good pointers. Here is my take on them:

    #1, I like this one a lot, but be careful about the background elements. My eyes are drawn to those distracting elements back there.

    #2, Good, but the focus on the face is kind of soft. The focus seems to be more on the chest. There needs to be sharp focus on the face and particularly on the eyes.

    #3, Again, nice, but the focus can be sharper on the face.

    #4, Not bad, but crop it closer to her head. Also, be sure her toes are relaxed.

    Big positives are that the colors are rich and vibrant, and contrast is very good. Great skin tone. Lovely model. :)

    What everybody said.

    plus - the creases where her arm meets her body in pix 2 & 3 are really eye-catching - and not in a good way.

    Very nice set; #1 and #4 seem to stand out for me. I go between the nice framing of the first one and the sultry look of #4; I can't decide!!!! :)

    Nice work and very nice model!

    Cool shots, nice urban feel to them. I would add some "edge" in PS. These shots would benefit from a grungier look, especially the last one. I could edit for you, if you wish, and send it to you. Let me know.

    I'm with Mesoam... She looks amazing, but the makeup around the eyes is too heavy.

    Where do you get all those pretty girls!?!:blushing:

    Nice shots, but she should really tone down the mascara and eye-liner.
