    #1- I like her smirk, and really wish that flower wasn't there to block her cute expression!

    #2- Feel a little bright, but I like it

    #3- Seems a little too dark (underexposed is the right term?)

    #4- I like it! Is there anyway you can seperate her more from the tree she is in front of? It's like her hair just blends in with the bark.

    Keep in mind, I'm just going off as a viewer, not an experienced photographer! I think you really do have a knack for people photography though, you posed her well and I think her personality comes across through the photos.

    The last one is wonderful! What film/body/lens etc were you using?

    thanks for the quick responses!

    i wish the flower wasn't there on the first one too :/ but im using film so i couldn't check the LCD to make sure.

    The camera is a Yashica FX-8 body with Tamron SP 35-80mm lens.

    Thank you!
    One day I will be rich enough to buy an DSLR, but for now the 30 year old film camera will have to do.

    What he is saying is you should be taking care of that in the field. When you are framing your shot. All you had to do was move to the left.

    Yep, I understand that, but I guess I wasn't looking closely enough while taking the shot, and i had no LCD screen to check afterwards because i shoot film.
