If you scroll up you will learn that I dislike composites and why.Consquently, this one should be deleted. Furthermore your expressions are lackluster.
Also delete two of your last three images - smae set, same wardrobe, same concepts.
This blurry one adds nothing of value.
Here you look gorgeous, keep it, although I wish your photog photoshopped this image remove the bottle as it is distracting a bit. Always check your photographer's work for such annoying details and have them edit the imge accordingly.
As much as I hate smoking, here you look totally cool. Great job.
Delete most of your composites (read my previous posts about these).
Delete half your port as its too bulky. One simple way to go about choosing which ones to chop is to delete old images that have one or no comments. Listening to your viewers is sometimes a wise thing to do. If you hate deleting, at least hide them.
I love this portrait for her expression, nice tattoo and the light.
I would say poor expression is your weakest point. Delete this one and the two images to the right as your expression is forced. There ae several other images in your port with this same expression. Be natural, be sad, be happy, be surprised. You ought to work with some talented photographers that can coach you in this area.

This one looks too much like highschool class photo. I recommend removing it.
Delete this one for two reasons. you already posted a very similar image and the green cloth background looks unprofessional. There is a way to fix it with editing. I do it all the time. If you send me the original image, I would be glad to fix it for you.
I love your pose and expression here (but you ought to delete couple of the related images)

I will throw the ball back in your court. You read my comments in this and the previous page, and delete (or hide) the images you think I would recommend deleting. Come back to me then, and I will propose more. Deal ?
Alexandra, if you read my previous posts you will see I dislike composites and I the reason why - they images are too small to see on the thumbnailplus you will get judged by the worst image in the group. delete this one not only because it is a composite, but you already have a similar image from the same scene. DOnt confuse the viewer.

Dana, please take time to read the last couple pages of this forum and you will see what kind of images I alway recommend removing. Based on that you should know to remove about 10 images from your port. Once you do that, please get back to me and I will be glad to point the 11 th image to remove. Then I will also tell you my favorites Deal ?
Okay, I really cut a lot out of my portfolio your suggestion. The first five were liberating to delete, the last 4 or 5 painful. But, I do want to improve my portfolio, so any opinion or advice would be appreciated.

You seem a quick learn and you have done a great job picking the weak ones thus greatly improving your port. Now I am ready to pick a few more to delete.
Bad makeup, lackluster expression, duplicate scene
Lackluster expression, boring pose
Third praying image in your port (or is this a yoga pose?), unflattering to your beauty
Now here are some of the images that make your port shine. This retro has good photography, great wardrobe and so is your expression.
Delete this image as it is the same expression and photographed from the same angle as your first image. As a general comment, as you develop your portfolio, be mindful you need to experiment with a wider range of expressions.
This B&W is one of my faves. Nice pose, thoughtful expression, shows your curves well, great photography
