Slightly risque, slightly dark light in the face, but a lot to like in this one. Nice job.

the face is slightly dark, but this is a portrait that gets your attention.

This one has a lot of potential. I would try to brighten her face a touch, and then a bit more than that around her eyes. However, I do like the bit of light wrapping around her cheek on camera right, so I wouldn't want to lose that with the overall brightening.


For me, I would crop off the bottom of the image right where the shorts start. To me, the angle of the image makes her thighs seem big. Either that or I'd liquify them thinner. But for a portrait, to me, there's too much skin on the bottom and it distracts from her face.

Lovely lady. Yes, I would have put more light into the face, camera left. The underware, hand placement, cutting off the fingers doesn't do much for me.

Beautiful woman! I agree with the underexposed face needing some additional brightness. Nice expression.



My critique: The tops of the legs are way to hot. The wild strands of her hair (on left) should have been swept aside along with the rest of it. I don't care for her hand in between her legs.
