First one I look at this morning and really good images, although way too many nudes to view while eating my cornflakes this morning.

Love this one:

Two beautiful girls and this is the best you can create.

I see this as a modern take on Ophelia which I like.

My thoughts are that you are very talented, but could take it to a level higher.

Maybe less in quantity and more in quality.

Promising start but do more of this;

and less of this;

http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/30715435

Get out of the studio, pack away Photoshop and get some raw energy going.

What can I say; it's like looking at some fake internet dating agency.

Where is the art of the photographer?

Some very pretty models, lots of awful images.

I understand what you are trying to do, but get away from the gimmicks. You are too talented to waste your time.

Also consider getting into real black and white printing (film and a darkroom), because I think you could produce some amazing pictures.

You have an eye for black and white.

Lay it on me.

(I may request a recount in a couple of months when I finish updating. What you see is the last three months of 2011 and the first 5-6 days of 2012. I'm about halfway through 31,000+ newer images - but I'd be interested in what you have to say about the first snapshot in time.)

All of your photos are very good, but I feel a lack of passion in them. Sort of like a very good high street photographer.

What I would suggest is get one llama, go away for the weekend with her and shoot all the time.

Develop a relationship between the photographer and the llama where the camera does not feel like a barrier between both of you.

Find some passion

Honestly I see potential here, but I think you are trying too hard.
Get down to some basics and plan your shoots better.

Take this image,
http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/30496864

You had the right idea, good model, but then look at the flat light, the power cables cutting her in half.

You could have waited for a better day or personally I think this idea would work well in the early evening, with good back fill in flash.

Attention to detail is what is missing

I have to admit the eye contact is very good.

But look at the wrinkles around the nose.

When I look at this image I can't stop asking myself "why"?

The reason why I said hard is because all the images are good.

With the bad one I think more could have been made with this. Also remove the shoes.

With the ugly one ..... please don't add things to an image that really has no reason to be there.

Overall some nice images.

When you get a couple together it must have passion, desire and lust.

It is hard as models are not actors, but when you do that type of photo the models must act and feel it or it just will show in the image.
