Dear All,

This is her and my second time doing portraits and I hope that I was able to bring out the various aspects of her character & features. All in all, I had a great time and it was made the more easier due to my great assistant, my wife.

Please comment.

I love #3 especially, the expression, angles, framing, very nice!
For me, #2 and #5 suffer a little from the background "going through her head" and #4 background I find too bright...Having said that I do really like the angles of #5...
It's a great set of pictures :)

What follows is only my opinion and can be safely ignored if you like

Nice series.
IMO #3 is the best, the composition is much better than the others, the colors are saturated and the subject is very intriguing.

Even so, I think this could be improved by some changes in the crop.

The left hand side of the image is a very light blue featureless wall that is at a slant and so throws the picture off a bit. (the color doesn't match the rest of the picture either)
The woman's eyes are almost at the midpoint of the picture vertically.

I would straighten the image thus removing the wall - its color doesn't fit the rest of the picture anyway.
Then I would crop tighter. This puts her beautiful eyes at a stronger position in the frame.
A little area sharpening to intensify the color.

BTW, I just read that this was your second time trying portraits.
These are just great and even remarkable for a second try.
Congratulations.
