It's an awkward pose and the horizon is off.

It's my opinion that there are two choices for bikini footwear.  None (at least one foot on toes) and cork or rope wedges.  Dressy heels tend to look slutty.  Flats tend to make your legs look short.

Your pose is awkward.  Your expression is blank.  The background sky is overexposed.  Also, the shot is crooked, as mentioned.

Also, a black bikini is not my first choice of color for something like this.  I don't see any detail in the suit since the contrast was turned up so high.

Do you like the photo?

This one is much better. http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/31467624

Did not make use of a good location.
Lighting is off.
Horizon is off.
Good model but not a good look on this shot.

Fail !

Sorry Kelly that's a big no from me.
If this is the best from the shoot you need to reshoot or find someone who knows a little about lighting and giving direction.

Your right hand hides the hour glass shape of your body which makes it seem less flattering.

No. I don't see a model. I see a girl trying to pose like one. The styling is way off and the photography, rather ordinary.

Kelly, you are pretty with a nice figure. But that is only the start. You need to project some energy and sexiness into the image.  And the photography is very plain and listless.  Combined this is a boring photo.

I hope after the shoot you immediately sought medical attention for the pain in your side you were experiencing.
