I've been trying to expand my portfolio and added a couple of new nudes. What are your opinions on them? Thanks:)

Love them both - favour the first because it works comprehensively. In the second you look stunning but the setting is a bit like an Ikea commercial - your pose and look and the set don't sync for me - in another setting this would be an outsanding shot.

Number one is not very flattering to you at all. Your shape is deceptively pronounced in many ways and your skin stripped of texture, but most impressively your body has been flattened out despite every attempt to do the opposite through the use of dramatic lighting. Bad shot, way bad.

The second image is by far the better of the two. Your feminine qualities are displayed to a far greater effect.

Without a doubt I see it as one of your best overall.

Both are worthy additions to your collection.

great shots both of them, actually i like the first one more, but the burn out parts i don't like. maybe they just got lost during convertion to b&w.

I like them both - but have minor quibbles with both.  (but this is nitpicking)

The first has a few issues already mentioned -

The 2nd has your toes curled so tight - as to create a feeling of tension - that is directly in opposition to the quiet relaxed nature of the image.

I'd have no problem seeing them both included.

On both shots good work on your part. The first pic is overprocessed. The second is spot on.

You can keep both in your portfolio if you want.

I personally don't like either. You are just an object within the frame in both. I think you can do more interesting work than this as the subject of the photos, instead of an object in the photos, but if you are happy with them, by all means, keep them.
