If you make it to mine, I'd really appreciate your thoughts. I'll be trimming my portfolio soon.

Would love to know your opinion

You posted too many images of the truck. As a general rule, keep only one image per outfit or concept. There are other such examples in your port.

Great work overall. This image stands out for its lovely loaction, light, your pose and engaging expression

I would not delete anything as your port is brief and diverse. But if you insist I would pick this one as I see no strong concept.

My fave is this one. Its creative, and makes me wonder what other cool props you hiding in your stduo smile

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.

Your figure and beauty is seen well here:

125 images in anyone's port is too many. People dont have time to sort through such multitude. I am sure you can pare down your port to less than 40 which will represent your capabilites quite well. If you scroll up, you will see I always recommend deleting images if multiply posted from the same scene/concept or wardrobe. Here is one example, but there are many more such in your port:

Unlike your other images, here you look too emaciated for my taste.

http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/29261718

Overall, your's is an amazing port. My fave is this one for concept, pose, execution, and because I am a fan of Salvador Dali smile

Unlike your other images, this one has the feel of a snapshot with no unique attributes. I think this image seriously drags your port down

Not a fan of composites/collages in a port. This one in particular neither shows your face/figure in the best light, neither do I perceive any captivating concept. Delete.

This one shows you beautiful face and nice leggy figure quite well. Plus I love nerdy girls showing their sexuality.

While the light and setting are interesting, your expression is not captivating. Delete it.

Delete this one as it has least comments. I know this is a copout, but sometime you just need to listen to your audience. As they say, the voice of the people is the voice of God.

I find collages confusing in a port. Ok so you pack several images in one and thus stay within your MM quota. But I will predict you will not get many comments on it, so its like a zero value.

Here, the pose is superb. I have a soft spot for ballet dancers.
