You have a really distinct look. Love your black hair.

The new location shots are good but I'd love to see some studio non-nudes as I think they would add depth to your port.

Keep up the good work.

What exactly is it you're working on?  Is it the posing?  If so, that won't do you any good if the quality of your photos doesn't improve.  Is it the editing of your photos?  If so, then you simply need to STOP what you're doing. 

You DON'T need that much post work done on your images.  You have what looks like a nice figure and nice eyes.  Instead of seeing more shots where either you're blurred beyond recognition or there's so much contrast you lose any fine detail, I'd rather you hired a really good makeup artist and a good photographer and show what you've really got. 

The overall quality of your images has not improved since you started on this site.  The post work done to them is just as distracting now as it was then.  If you were in my area, I would do a TF shoot with you just to show how little you need all those filters and smoothing brushes.  It's a shame, because you really could be showing improvement by now; but it seems like you're too scared to believe people will like the way you look if you don't alter the images.
