  2. I like the first two... nice poses. I don't care for the background in #3. All of these are just a touch hot.

    #1 is good and I like the lighting. I would just crop out some of the extra space above her head and whiten up her teeth a little.

    #2 looks good and I like the background.

    #3 looks slightly overexposed and the pose doesn't work for me. I would like to see her body turned a little more towards the camera. Also crop that extra space above her head.

    The catch light look square, were you using a softbox? If so, what size?
     
  4. Geeez, I like em all. If any nitpick it would be the very serious look she is giving in photo 2. Very wholesome lady

    I like them. They're a little hot, but I tend to like portraits kind of hot.

    I actually like the umbrella a lot more than i like my 15" Alzo softboxes, and umbrellas are a whole lot cheaper! I just dont like round catch lights.

    I finally realized that #3 bugs me because of the fairly strong shadow from her nose.

    HEY! No take-backs! :tongue:
     
  12. i like #s 1 and 2 the most
    they are a bit hot....
    which is fine.... but, it's the minimal UNDERsaturation that bothers me... easily fixed in post.... if YOU want to do so

    pretty girl
    i agree that #3 doesn't really "work."

    thanks for sharing
     
  13. #3 background is a yucky color for skin tones to go against. could have taken a different angle on number two but it's ok and I like the first.
     
  14. I will follow the general consensus regarding image 3. Also, they appear a bit soft to me. Maybe add a little smart sharpen or USM to the web sized images. I would definitely sharpen them for print.
