    Nice work.

    I like the pose and exposure in #2, but the background is still a bit distracting.
    In #3, I love the exposure and body position...except for the way her neck/jaw is pulled back.
    #4 & 5 I like very much.

    Looks like you are doing a pretty good job of balancing ambient light and fill flash.

    tell me which one did she like and which one do people think looks the most like her.

    If I were you on the last one I would clone in that patch of sky over her head/

    What kind of lighting did you use here?

    She looks slightly overexposed in most of the shots to me. There are spots where her shirt is blown out and her skin has strange hightlights.

    She hasn't had a chance to get the CD from me yet... so we'll see :)
    i used a crappy $15.00 Quantaray Q15 flash that i only bought for shooting some little league basketball games in a crapily lit gym :)

    I only have a little laptop, so as far as calibration goes, i lack the capability to get everything right.... which is why they are most likely overexposed like you said! :)

    Thanks for the comments everyone!

    Great pics! Lovely model and 2, 4, and 5 are very nice compositions. I like the last one the most, but would see if cropping it a bit does anything positive. Also, i agree with you as they seem a little bit over exposed - but likely an easy fix in pp?

    Well done!!

    since you say it is okay to edit I cloned in the background I was talking about. When I do a portrait I try to make it all about the person with nothing distracting..
