    OK, 76 views and no comments. I guess I'll go first.

    First of all, Tina has AWESOME eyes. I feel like I'm falling into a trance if I look at them too long.

    In photo #1, I think F/9 is a bit too small of an aperture. I think a shallower depth of field would have done wonders for this photo. Looks like you shot this with a 50mm--so I'm sure you had plenty of room to open the aperture. Composition is nice, except that half of her head is missing.

    Photo #2:
    The best of the three you posted. It is very nicely done. Those EYES!! Once again, shallower depth of field would have worked a little better.

    Photo #3:
    I hate to say it, but it doesn't do a whole lot for me. I mean, Tina is very pretty and I like looking at topless women as much as the next guy, but, I dunno. I'll let others who are more qualified than me critique it. I think it's the lighting, but I really don't know for sure.

    On another note, I've seen lots of your work on here and it is very good, so I'm sure I'm not telling you anything you don't know already. I'm sure your next batch will be off the charts. :cheers:

    I have to agree that #3 doesn't really do much for me either. Technically it is great. But the look and pose just seem kinda "eh"...

    But I love the highlights of the face in #1 & 2. Her eyes and the "look" are very strong and provocative. I really like the feel of them!

    I don't know if I care about the topless ones, but the 2nd one does seem to be an improvement over the first one. The white background and her being overly illuminated did make it too bright imo. On the 2nd one you can see more of her body definition. But the poses to me are still.... unmoving?

    The other ones are much better though.

    Please keep in mind that the following comments are not an aesthetic judgment of your subject. And the things that are wrong with the photos are oversights, not crimes. With practice, attention, and good critique you can learn to not overlook them.

    #1: Not too shabby but would be much better with less DOF and in black and white.
    #2: Just doesn't work. The hands are really kind of pointless. And if you can't find a hair-stylist who will TFP or can't hire one, then at least get a brush. That hair is no good.
    #3: Wide hips means do not shoot dead-on.

    In the next post
    #1: The boy shorts almost work, but I still would shy away from shooting dead-on. To be honest if I were going to try to keep this shot I would liquify a tiny but just above the panty line.
    #2: Does not work. There's a lot of things going wrong here...the background, she has no neck, etc.
    #3 and #4: Definitely do not work. I think they're scary. Trashy at best.

    I personally think the model has great eyes and is very good at posing.

    #1 from the first post is your winner...great light, great composition, just a great shot overall.

    and like others here, the topless ones aren't working for me...

    if you want to continue shooting her topless (and im sure the members will continue to view them for critique :lol:), have you considered posing her just like you have on the other ones?... rather than just a dead-on frontal shot?

    she has a great look, and those eyes ARE stunning! she seems like she likes being in front of the camera, so i would DEFINITELY continue working with her.
    you found an awesome model...good for you!:thumbup:

    I noticed in the ones of her standing up (topless ones) you had her facing dead straight at the camera. Did you try anything different, like having her body turned slightly? I'd love to see some different angles posted here.
