Please have a look at the first 5 images of my portfolio and let me know what you think.

Please be detailed on what's good and what's not. This way, we can all learn and do better.

Thank you for all that gives their critiques!

Loose the photo borders, make sure the eyes are in sharp focus and clearly visible
Best photo of portfolio

Best with only one photo per slot, makes it easer to focus on

Wish you well!

Arrrghhhh... The first five images are collages... I hate collages.

Collages are collections of crappy pictures put together to try and convince a viewer there's something worth looking at.

They 'dilute' strong images, and do NOTHING to help weak ones.

Putting borders on them just makes them even more obvious as collections of less than interesting stuff. Outside of obituaries, when was the last time you saw a black border around a printed image?

Just my opinion.

Aside from it being collages, can you please be more specific about why the pictures are weak?
