I have recently added quite a few pics to my portfolio and need some feedback on what to cut. Please provide feedback.

Thanks,
Dan

I think you should change your avatar to start with - it doesn't reflect your style.
Also get rid of the kid looking at the terracotta army as it sends out confusing signals.
If you want to have a really compact portfolio, cut it back to the best shot from each shoot.

It's a lot of work. I would rather just leave comments on photos that I like and you could delete the comments later. "This" for I like. "Kill" for I don't like.Compiling a list on Xmas day just takes so, so long. Merry Xmas.

You have a lot of repeats.  Many photos from a single shoot, many photos where models are in similar poses.  If you're looking to trim back, that's what I'd do. 

Beautiful port by the way.

you don't need us for that. Remove photos that look similar. Keep the ones you find best.

You have cut off the models fingers
Missing models left arm altogether
Details hair band on wrist
Forehead looks dark compared to cheeks
Hair messy on models right side
Over all image lacks pop, could us a reflector or additional light next time
This would be one to start with for removal

There is a new campaign to save models hands; it called “The new composition revolution”
Bit excessive on head tilt a little goes a long way
Second nomination for removal
