Very nice images!

Cropping the right side of #1 would make her more prominate in the image.

The skin color in both seems off...very yellow/red. Is that what you were going for?

Thanks, for the feedback. I will have to check my monitor as I do not see the yellow but do see a hint of red in the 2nd image.

I like the images. 1 could stand to be brought up in exposure more. I disagree on cropping tighter for 1. Sometimes you need environmental shots where the subject is part of the environment. If anything maybe pulling back more.

I say those are great, I think pull back a touch although composition is very important when pulling back. I like the lighting.

I think in the second shot she's perhaps too close to the background and the lighting appears a little flat. Also I'm not crazy about having the subjects shoulders square to the camera. I also agree that both images look about a 1/2 stop underexposed.

Now to the first image. I like the composition and I like the pose though her facial expression isn't great. I think what would really make this image better would have been a wider aperture or perhaps a longer focal length. Blurring that background a bit more would add some needed separation and make that fence and gate a little less distracting.

I also agree on the exposure. In the first on it appears that is it pretty warm and she may have had a little sweat on her face that reflected the flash. I find using the patch tool in PS works well to remove hot spots on the face. There is one on her chin and above her right eye.
