    #2 is the only one I see with interesting composition. Lighting is good in all of them. However her smile and overall facial expression is lacking any interest. There's a personality in there somewhere, next time try to tease it out a little more.

    I think #1 would look so much better with her feet up in the air behind her, head cocked to the side a little and smiling more. Maybe I read too many Max Brooks books but it almost looks like she has no legs and is crawling down a dirt road - no I'm not trying to make a joke of your photo, please don't take it in a bad way.

    I like #3 and #4 a lot though

    #3 I'd like to see straightened out, but the lighting on her is good and she stands out against the dark background well.

    #4's a bit warm, and I might try to crop a little off the left and desaturate the yellows in the foliage.

    EDIT: Wow... I mixed up the numbers, sorry. (was calling 3 '2' and calling 4 '3') Fixed it

    C&C per req:

    1. This is a really interesting image. I like the idea, and while there is sort of a 'disembodied' look, I think it's unique and a good image. My only niggle is that you have the vanishing point too far behind her, so the road is really leading your eye right past her. I would suggest the image would have been much stronger had she been a few feet further back.

    2. A classic, but too much 'empty' space, and a very distracting background.

    3. Nice, good use of the dark to highlight the subject, but I think the WB, esp. around her face could use a little adjustment as it seems very pale.

    4. Rather too centred for my taste, but again I like the composition of the subject in relation to the tree and grass. Agree with the comments concerning WB.

    5. A nice expression; I would prefer to see this as a vertical orientation with a little more body visible. The monochrome conversion is a bit mid-tone rich; I would suggest a slight contrast increase and perhaps some levels/curves tweaks. As well, the image seems slightly soft to me.

    Just my $00.02 worth - your mileage may vary.

    #1 looks to me like shes buried in that dirt...perhaps one step to either side would have negated this illusion.
    i think im digging #3 the best.

    Just my 2 cents...

    I like them overall. But I was thinking.... Since you say that it is ok to edit your photos... Perhaps a different crop in #1?

    I think #1 she needs to have her feet being shown...
    It looks like she is just a head from the way the picture is situated.

    The more I look at it the more it creeps me out! haha

    Over all, nice lighting.

    #1 gives me the creep...I keep thinking she is buried in the road.
    #2 too much dead space to her right. There's a tree branch coming into the back of her neck and tiny branches emerging from the other side of her head.
    #3 I like this one except the door way is crooked. Perhaps that's what you were going for?
    #4 She is too centered IMHO, but otherwise, I like the photo.
    #5 This could have been a really nice photo. Her pose looks interesting, but alas, I feel you cropped her too close.

    My 2 cents: I think you should go for a wider range of expressions. Her expression is strangely similar in all of these, and she looks strangely out of touch with her surroundings. She's a pretty girl , her beauty won't suffer from a serious face.

    I like 2,3,4. Not bad at all, imo.
