skin looks muddy, the blow out is way to much in the headshot. 3 years? why is half your port from the same shoot?

The eyes are badly overprocessed. The crud on her eyebrows may be an artistic choice, but IMO it wrecks the image even more than the eyes.

Again, overprocessed eyes. Face is blown out and the image is just too darned out of focus.

I like this for the energy and personality. It's a basic snapshot, but a pretty decent snapshot. Personality makes this.

The lips and the whites of the eyes are overprocessed, but otherwise a really interesting image.

This is definitely your best shot IMO

The rest of them look like they've been over processed, blown out or have other exposure or tonal problems. Maybe portrait professional? Since that software usually has a similar effect on the eyes as to what we see here.

You get extra credit for the composition on this

not exposure or post work, just composition.

The rest of my portfolio is typical portraits like engagement shoots, weddings, seniors etc. I have only done a few shoots with models.
