    Really great lighting and natural expressions. Her eyes stand out very well. I love the fun feel to the last photo as well. The only thing I find a little distracting is the wrinkles in the white backdrop. That's a matter of personal preference though :)

    The wrinkles bother me as well because it's not actually wrinkles it's a design that ends up looking like wrinkles in the pictures, drives me crazy.

    did you play with the saturation of the blue in the third one? Almost looks fake...

    Not to worry... shallower depth of field will make it all better. Increase the distance from the background to the subject if you have room.

    Don't forget general retouching to take care of the shadows under the eyes.

    NICE WORK! The butterfly lighting works well with her.

    The exposure looks pretty good in all of them, but I have never been a big fan of butterfly lighting, but to each his own. The first image (IMHO) is the best. In all of the others she is sitting straight up and down and straight up and down usually looks boring in a photograph. Leaning her body and tilting her head gives the image some action and prevents the static straight up and down 'Olin Mills' look, especially when using flat lighting.
