Here are two of my newest images. I am suffering from "been staring at them too long and dont know if they are done or not" syndrome.

They both feel as though they need the contrast popped especially in the dark areas which are blocked up. The top image is cool, but could be brighter overall.

This one just needs a little more contrast, and brightening on the face. A great photo though.

Thanks Guys.

I dont know why but MM seems to darken my images when i upload. If you were to see them on my FB page  http://www.facebook.com/EAwesomePhotography  you can see that they are much more colorful.. well a bit anyway

Wrinkled background
Face is dark compared to body
Prefer hand not to block view of models face
Pointing fingers at camera will tend to make them look short

Too much dead space for a models portfolio
Big toe sticking up on models right foot
Hair band o wrist
If anything you should have her looking at your big logo
Arch back, let hair cascade down more gracefully
[Not lump up on shoulder]

Over all both seem to lack pop
