I find your portfolio to be all over the place.

Some photos are simple and effective - well lit and well executed in terms of post work.  Seems like you have a good grasp on communicating visually.

Then there is this which seems completely incoherent to me.

And then this.  Harsh lighting, very distracting background and weird tinting.  Why place the model in a stream so she needs to gather up the dress into a ball around her hips?  If she was jumping/skpping across the stream it might work, but stopping to pose looking off into nowhere?  I am lost with what you are trying to do here.

Sometimes it seems you have no regard for lighting whatsoever:

This sort of post processing is way too much for my taste.

I think you have skills, but seem somewhat unfocused in what you're doing with them.  I hope that's helpful.
