My goal for 2013 is to raise the bar in terms of my look. I'm currently focusing on composition, posing the models, and post processing. Any feedback on how to improve would be greatly appreciated. Feedback on what works and doesn't work in my portfolio. Images that are heading in the right direction and images that are doing the opposite. Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing the feedback, both good and bad.

Eliminate the logo
Clasp on necklace [Photoshop out and or keep it behind llamas neck]
Raise camera to level near llamas eyes
The llamas pose looks confusing as to which way she is going, body to photo left, face to photo right
Raise crop to just above elbow
Where is the llamas right arm?
Lighting seems a bit flat
Whites of eyes look over processed
You are not getting any light into the llamas eyes, too high as indicated by nose shadow,
Every time you repose the llama check the lighting
Too much head tilt
Cropping you seem to like cutting off the fingers

Thanks for the input Lee. Much appreciated.

Pay attention to the crops, where you cut people's appendages off, where the line of the head ends; pay attention to the background poles and highlights which steal attention from the subject.

Thanks. I'm unfamiliar with the term "line of the head ends". Would you have an example with one of my images?

I think your images are lovely. I do feel that they all look very similar to each other though. many are cropped like the one before and all have the subject dead center. maybe try some close beauty shots or farther away full body shots with the rule of thirds? and I'm sorry but I agree, I think your watermark is large and distracting.
cheers to my Seattle neighbor~
