Exactly what it says in the thread title - link (or use forum code for non-18+ photos) to the strongest and weakest photos in the portfolio of the person above you, and explain why!

I get that you want to have an "insane asylum" theme in your entire port, but this could be anywhere.

WORST:
There are quite a few that are not very good in here (get some basic, clean shots, showing off YOU, not backgrounds or railroads) but, this one I particularly didn't think was very flattering:
http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/110908/23/4e69b57628b66_m.jpg
You have a nice body, do shots that accentuate it, not detract from it.
Of course, it's just my opinion, take it for what it's worth. smile Lot's of potential, and a great face!

Avi is definitely your best, but could be better if you cleaned up the backdrop.

Your worst is this, I feel it's been photoshopped beyond all help.

You are perfect in this shot, I wish there was a shallower depth of field.

Interesting idea very bad execution, by the photographer.

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120726/10/5011840989a1a_m.jpg

Your port really shows at you know what you are doing good energy and connection with the camera.  A lot of your pictures could be perfect if your photographers just made slight changes.  I wish I was in Brooklyn you seem like you would be great to work with.

I think this is you best overall.  Nice pose and composition.

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/110606/15/4ded58723cf4f_m.jpg

Don't really dislike anything in your port, but since I have to pick something, I'll say this is your worst.

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120605/12/4fce5eb4552b6_m.jpg

Nothing particularly wrong with it, just doesn't jump out at me.

In general... your striking features give me the impression that you are a much better model than your port would indicate.   Look forward to seeing what else you do.

This is your best. The location is dynamic, the model looks lovely and I really like the crop. smile It's a little oversatured for my taste, but it's still lovely!

http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pi … 2#29843042
One of your worst. She's really yellow/green, and it's just not all that flattering.

http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pi … 8#29109758
Your other worst... holy Photoshop! May try re-editing it with a much, much lighter hand!

Your best photo is
http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/110616/19/4dfab797d8617_m.jpg
because it's a beautiful headshot and shows off your wonderful facial features. Black and white photos really suit you!
Your worst photo is
http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120130/06/4f26a80aed434_m.jpg
Because your eyes are closed, I can see up your nose and the styling, hair and makeup does not suit you.

Something about this photo just seems a bit awkward to me. I can't quite put a finger on it. I wouldn't really call it a worst, but it's certainly not my favorite from your portfolio.
