Direct frontal sun is seldom a desirable main light.

thanks all that gave positive feedback also thanks bobby for stepping in and addressing the issue. I've only been shooting for a few months the sun was something I knew was going to cause probs due to the time of day. there are many more shots and angles I just thought these were "different I'm still learning to edit in lightroom. I am also still learning about lighting and shadows I prolly should have used a fill flash and a 50mm instead of a 35mm. Should I post the raw files post crop, post process?

I agree with Bobbys comments 100%.

I think a longer lens here would certainly have helped.

I like #2 but can't help the feeling that the wider angle lens is doing a dis-service to the model. I also think a different crop where the model is centred and the edge of the wall in the distance is on the 2/3rds would be worth trying. She's pointing out of the frame and is right on the edge.

#1, 3 and 4 have harsh noon day light. Morning or late afternoon sun will make a big difference.

#4 is almost there for me but the focal length and pose undo what could have worked. Looking along straight legs with a short lens seems to fatten them while making the head much smaller and seem further away.

Since you've only been shooting a few months, you've done well. If you listen and evaluate the critique everyone provides, you'll come on leaps and bounds in no time...

What Bobby said!
I think most things have been addressed about lighting and poses, however I really like #2 and #3.
Try cropping two as mentioned with more room on the left and crop to the small horizontal lines on the right removing the large lines.
I like #3 I wish I had places like that to use as a backdrop.
Keep up the good work.

You've gotten all the comments I might have made (including Bobby's defense against rudeness) so I'll just say I'm only a little bit ahead of you in learning and I've got 10,000 horrible frames to prove it.

Stay with it and keep learning from the people on here.
