Worst. I don't like the light on her nose. It makes it the focal point on this shot.

Thank you very much.  I appreciate it.

Best. Awesome viewpoint and sky!!! Wish the style was edgy fashion for this. Perhaps a small pop of light to make it more about the model while retaining your cool sky!

Worst. The comp is not my style! I would lower it a good bit to fill the frame with your subject.

Best - Dayummm!! I LOVE this shot so much! I will take two of these please!!!! Ha!
http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120916/14/50563e964e69f_m.jpg

Worst 1 - Get a pro to do the "no makeup" shot. I don't think you should burn a photo slot with this one. You could paste the "no makeup" shot on your profile page and keep all your awesome ones for your MM port.
http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/121031/13/509189dc2d3ac_m.jpg

Worst 2 - Your left arm go missing in the shot due to the pattern and pose position. If you brought the hand to the knee it would help some. I also feel like the mood does not match the location. This is a happy place and it feels/looks like your puppy just passed away.

Your worst is one of my first MM shots. I didn't do any PS work back then. - other than tone/color work. Perhaps it is the amount of light.

Best - Love the model and her sexy outfit!! Nice frame work too!

Worst - I don't think that this helps your port look any stronger. I get it... light writing is fun!

You have a lot of happy/fun outfits... Make sure your moods reflect the style of the shoot. Don't hold back on showing a wide range of emotion.

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/121208/18/50c3f7144ddd9_m.jpg

Worst - I like your pose and the dress! I just think the comp and view point make you look very short. A tighter crop might help some.

Yes!! We moved to Fredericksburg recently so it was slow for a while! Ha!!

Best - Love it!! Great color tone and nice comp!! Sexy style too! You have a stunning face!!

Worst - I don't care for the light on your face. Not your fault! It looks very strange to me.

Try to change up your mood it looks like you are staying in the same range of moods for all of your MM shots.

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/110929/21/4e85489439880_m.jpg

Worst - Pose wise it is very collected and feels unbalanced in the frame. Creating windows in your pose would help this one out.

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120726/00/5010f05cdba08_m.jpg

Worst - The other one from this shoot is a much better shot. The post work lightened your backdrop (especially in the facial area) and made the edit work one of the focal points.

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/110426/23/4db7b7ba257a6_m.jpg

Worst- The light in this shot kills it! It is way to harsh to do anything for you.
http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/110620/04/4dff3269c2fa9_m.jpg

The best thing you can do is try to line up some work with some better photographers. It will help you out a great deal! Most of the problems with your port are not your fault.

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/121211/22/50c820c96bb93_m.jpg

You have a really good port, every image I looked at was better than the one previous... then this came up:

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120713/19/5000d6a135dd6_m.jpg

It's a nice picture, but compared to the rest of your port, it's not very memorable. Very "high school senoir yearbook".
