I would work on posing and facial expression.
Practice in the mirror and study your favorite models/ fashion magazines

The big problem Jade is that you're asking for a critique on images that have been created by a photographer who hasn't asked for a critique.

It is impossible to give a critique because these are essentially a photographers's creations.

These images cannot be critiqued without giving an unsolicited critique of the photographer.

Wow.. really?? So a model cannot get a critique of her images??

Edit: I better change that to "images she appears in"...

The photographer shot a human being, not a mannequin. I'm pretty sure  we can critique the model and not the technical aspects of the photo. We're all "adults" here and photography is a collaboration.

I have been watching a lot of ANTM which is helping me to possibly make better photos for myself let alone critique a model accordingly to get what I want out of that model...so what I can tell you about the 3 photos you provided is that I am just looking at a pretty girl in a photo. do try to give more in the eyes and the body shape...

this shot (http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pi … 8#30422672) would have been great if you took the piercings out cause that's all i keep staring out.

Keep it up though, your doing great so far!

have to agree with you mr. harvey! unless this was supposed to be an exact imitation of another photo then we would be critiquing the photographer, but this is not that case

Did you and the photographer come up with some kind of back story as to why this location was chosen?  Who/What your character was? It seems pretty disjointed cool relic and then you standing there - the first image works ok, but the rest and especially the 3rd one don't.

Most of my critique would have to do with the processing - which isn't your fault.

For you personally, I'd recommend focusing on your lines.  You're flat footed in your photos.  Keep on your toes - lengthens your leg line and is more attractive smile
