Yes. I really like the soft feeling of this image and the lighting/color scheme is quite nice, though it's a little too blurred (even though I know that was the effect you were going for- it's just a bit too much) The dress shows off your figure well and the pose is decent- I like the backward glance look. Your expression should be more engaged though.

Nice:

No. The image is a bit too dark for me and I dislike the grainy texture of it. The pose is also a little awkward- I can't make out too well what's on the model's left side- I think it's an arm. Also, would like to see more of the model's face. And the model's expression isn't that great.

Somewhat better:

Sure, what a long thread. smile

Maybe. Even though the image is a little blurry, you have a great figure and a nice pose going on - except for the left hand- not sure where that one is. The outfit and heels are sexy- I would maybe move 1 side of hair off the right side so can see the outfit better. And your expression needs improvement- not very engaged.

Nice:

Yes, though I think the expression is not so great, the rest of it I like. I enjoy the smooth finish of the image and love the model's hair and natural makeup. Her features are lovely and the jean outfit shows off the top half of her figure well. The only thing is that her bra is showing and I dislike the crop at the top.

Decent:

No. I don't believe this a flattering picture of the model - she looks pale, the expression is blank but she does have beautiful colored eyes, nice hair and I love the color of her shirt.

I would say maybe. I like your outfit- love the color of the dress! and think you wear it pretty well. The pose is decent, could be improved as could your your expression- Would like to see more of your face.

Would you or would you not?

I think so. The model to the left is far superior to the one who is just standing there, vertical. The model on the left has this lovely pose going on, that shows off her legs very well and there's emotion in her grip and expression. The other one doesn't have a good expression or pose. But overall, quite an interesting photo- Not sure I love the black and white though. I do, however, like the backdrop and styling is quite good.

Maybe. I like the black and white tones of this image and you have a very cute look. Love your big eyes and what I can see of your face - right down to the hair and your ear and earrings, but I don't like the arm that's in the way of the other half (of your face). That pose and showing off of your naked shoulders is lovely- sexy in an understated way.

Wow:

No. The image is quite dark- I don't like black backgrounds with a black shirt together. Not sure what the black bar is on the model's shoulder and really dislike smoking.

Yes, love the outfit and seems like you have a great figure. The pose is pretty good and I like the white, black, purple color scheme as well as the background of balloons and glittery foil on the floor. The light purple hair looks great on you too, but the expression is a little bored... Should be more engaged.

You look good here:

No. Don't love the style of this type of image-can't make out your facial features well and I think our looks would clash.

Maybe. I don't really like the smoking theme but I do like the color scheme, and the model looks great. Love the outfit on her and she's got great features- nice hair and makeup as well. Expression could be more engaged though.

No I think the retouching is way too smooth for it to be your real skin and I dislike the cropping in general. Your hair and eyes are very nice though. Makeup is okay and expression interesting- Not sure I like it.

Oh yes! I love the lighting, look of the model and most of the styling... the makeup looks great, and love the dress which looks great on the model- showing off her figure. I think the scarf and gloves are a bit much though, especially paired together but the hat looks good. The posing is decent, though arms are a little awkward. Expression is lovely. Nice location too!

Maybe. Nice body paint job and you've got a dynamic pose going but hands are a little awkward and your expression is a bit blank.

Not sure. I do like the background and the way the model is posed, making use of the location but really dislike the blurriness of her arm and face. Would like to see more of how the model looks but you've captured her figure well.

Maybe. It's an interesting and unique photo and I like the black and white tones. I've also always been a fan of mirrors and reflections in a shot. And the girl has a great expression but not sure about the dress.. What's wrapped around the middle?
