    The first one isn't great. She's looking away and her fingers are purple (was it that cold?)
    #2 is better. The tones and exposure a good but she still looks either cold or uncomfortable.
    In #3, she is looking more comfortable and #4 looks to be the best of the bunch.
    #5 looks a little too contrasty to me. #6 is better.

    Overall, I like the color ones better. She has great hair color and the warm tones (hair, clothes, background) really go well together.

    i think that looks frostbite purple... i would just do some quick selective coloring on her hands and pull that out..

    I agree with #4 being the best of the bunch..
    Great job overall in my opinion, keep it up

    What you shot looks good. Can we see some of the others? The leaning against a tree or post does not seem too creative.

    I would agree that #4 is the best, however, there is a stick that looks like it is coming out of her bottom. Other than that I say keep up the good work.

    thanks everyone.
    this was my first portrait session and I just wanted to know if I was on the right track.

    the one thing I know I need work on is getting a variety of poses.

    I think your crop look a little wierd, like missing figures and toes. I like the crop in 1, and 6, the rest of the crop is a bit distracting for me. Just my 2 cent.

    #4 is excellent (agree with the stick comment, though). #3 is good on your part...wish she looked more at ease, but her hair/pose/coloring looks wonderful. Nice work overall.
