Based on your avi I expected a beginner profile.  I was pleasantly surprised to find some great images in your port.

Beautiful work with sunset beach shots. The lighting has a nice natural feel to it.

I would like to see a bit more in the way of facial expression and engaging the camera emotionally. Your photos are fine, but lack emotional impact to get the viewer engaged.

How am I supposed to critique a body paiter?
OK.  'Too much painting nipples!  'Baby wants a snack.  What's he get?  A mouth full of paint chips!
"Seriously though, it looks good, but I thing more shadow details would give needed depth in some cases.

Technically great shots and quite original, but stop doing composite, just choose one shot per shooting.

You show quite a range of feelings - but not one shot where you are happy, smiling, portraying fun etc.

I do enjoy B/w nudes under dramatic lighting, however the weapon theme is a big distraction for me

I don't think this shot matches the quality of the rest of your photos (which are amazing):

I understand why you'd want to keep it (cool setting, cool contrast, cool colors) but it's really not of the same caliber, IMO!  Plus, I hate that the llama isn't wearing shoes! :x

The polaroid style picture just does not do you justice at all. You have much better work.

I simply love how beautiful you look in the one your brother took

I think you should work on your posing and start working with better photographers. I think it'd really help.

Out of your 15 pics, 11 have your hand coming to your head or face in one form or another, and that suggests you're playing it safe in your posing.
I think you should really push yourself and step outside your comfort zone. Get in front of that mirror and shake things up a little! :^)

OmnyRa - Technically solid...I think some of the poses are awkrard, especialy given the context in which they were shot.  Natural settings / Unnatural poses.

Nice work.. if I had any constructive criticism, I'd suggest directing more expressive facial expressions out of your llamas. They all seem to have the same look on their faces.. So much is in the eyes, a smirk, a raised eyebrow, etc that takes a shot from ordinary to more intriguing.. My favorite shots in your portfolio is the girl sitting down and laughing!

I wish you continued success! Happy New Year :-)

Your work is nice, if a little flat.  If you can't find assistants or don't have access to grip tools to help you with reflectors and flags, consider introducing some dodging and burning in post.

I really love your use of back lighting in most of your photos, but some of the posing with the models could be changed up. I think you could get even more dynamic shots in a similar set up.

You are off to very good start. Good lighting and focus. The only issue I find is that the cropping on two photos, first row, the second one. The llamas hand seems to get my attention more because it's bright and by itself. The third photo she is missing her hands. Just feels awkward to me. Aside from that you are on the right track with your technical skills. Nothing else really to pick on.
