you're gonna have to look long and hard to find the worst image......there are dozens and dozens of them that really suck. Really, about 90% of my port should go....   But give it your best shot!!!   lol

None of your images really "suck" they are all ok, but yes, you've got way too many. For example, delete a bunch of jessirose for example this one should go, among several, as you got better ones of her.

I would delete the face painting below. While it is artistic, and would be good to display in the face painter portfolio, this image does not show your true beauty in the best light.

Any railroad images, no matter how beautiful the model,  are a detriment to one's port in my view as they are deemed unoriginal.

This one shoud go too. Its just another pretty girl with boobs. No unique concept here. Off she goes.

Now here is another pretty girl, but the veils, light and photography make this image captivating, and beautiful

You did not listen to me the first time, so I will repeat. This following one should go as you are just smiling in every picture. If you decide to post a collage in the future, at least make sure it offers a wide range of poses and expressions

Pose, expression and light are superb here. Editorial quality stuff.

You posted too many images of this weird concept. Remove them all as you should delete the many other image variations of the same scene throughout your port. Keep only 20-30 best images and increase your port value by 200%

Lovely setting and wardrobe here. You look beautiful.

Anneliese,

While your makeup is great and you look beautiful, just sitting in a tree without a unique concept behind it,  gives this image feel of an amateur snapshot. This is bound to drag your beautiful port port down.

This one does justice to your gorgeous face and trim figure and the background is appealing. A great choice for your AVI

Get rid of ALL these images. I critiqued your port last week and as I recall there were a few great images. These do not compare. But if I were to chose just one, this one shows you in the worst possible light. Was it an abusive photographer?

Welcome to MM Emma!

Delete this smiling image and the previous one. Posting one or two images of your gorgeous smile is sufficient. Anything more and the viewer starts getting bored. As you develop your port, try experimenting with a range of emotive expression.

This portrait is one of my favorites as it captures your sublime beauty. Love your AVI too.

I'd love your help. I have a lot that probably should go. I get attached to the photos though, and see them as a photo blog rather than a portfolio which isn't good.

Thank you!

I think with my very few images, and not being of a professional quality as is, there isn't much that can be done for me as of yet. But I'd be interested to read your take either way, as this entire thread is quite good.

Always great to get second opinions on what you do.
