    It looks like the photo was made from close range with a short focal length lens, and the close shooting distance seems to be distorting the apparent size of her nose. It isn't a super-flattering look at her.

    That angle kind of accentuates her thickness.

    Sorry, this one isn't working for me at all. The image is at least 1 1/2 stops under-exposed and her eyes appear as black holes. The use of a reflector image left, or a single strobe with soft-box/umbrella would have really helped here. As well, you've cropped part of her right hand; cutting body parts isn't a problem, but try and do it boldly and never bisect joints. As others have mentioned, the pose isn't the most flattering. Keep at it!
