    These are better portraits, but...try not to shoot down on your subjects and you don't want to use a wide angle lens as it can distort their facial features.

    Better use of the light. Exposure, white balance and PP work are better. Not real crazy about the compositions, especially the last one.

    i looked at your origional post and these as well...they are definately an improvement! I agree with Samanax though, it does appear as though (esp. in the last pic) you have some wide angle distortion going on which is altering her facial features...not always the most flattering...
