    Firstly she a beautiful lady....I think you need to bring out her eyes a little (maybe a little post processing). Image number 2 is the best out of the series for me.
  3. I'm a complete newbie. I have Lightroom 2 and Photoshop CS4. Any explaination of how to "bring her eyes out" ? Thx!

  5. Processing is a little over the top on the face...IMHO

    In #1 you left pimples on her arm and shoulder, but her face looks like a barbie doll.

    Clean up her skin and back off the facial processing just a little....

    LOVE #3! Nice B/W and pose!
  6. She looks great in black and white. Clone out the lighter spots on the steps for they draw my eyes to them immediately.
  7. Thank you to everyone for your comments. I did some work on them considering what you said and here's where I'm at.






    And I'm gonna sneak in a new #6, just because I kinda like the vintage look:

    I like them (not that I'm a professional or anything). To me, I wish her smile in #5 was not so soft. #2 is the best IMO.

    1 and 4 are my faves.
  11. Thanks. I've never shot models either (this isn't a paid model...she's my wife) :) 
    She's been really supportive of this growing hobby so we went downtown yesterday to see what I could get with the new 17-55 f/2.8.

    Thank you. I agree about #5, I'll see if there is anything I'm able to correct in pp.

    Thanks Ryan, #1 is her favorite too.

    Well if you are a newbie than I would say that you have some great photos. Great job!
  13. Debbie, I'm a complete newbie. The first time I pushed a shutter button on a camera was only 2 months ago.

    Your statement begs the question - If I wasn't a newbie, what makes these images not great? :)  I use this forum as a learning tool and I'd appreciate your feedback on what aspects of the photo could have been improved to be great overall.

    Thank you!
