Not a fan of this one, your expression is hard to interpret and photography is mediocre. Get rid of it.

And while you at it, get rid of your car image, I dont get the concept.

My favorite is

Great makeup, expression, and beautiul sky (maybe photoshopped in, but who cares). Keep working with professional photographers and MUA's and keep up the great work!

Greetings neighbor. I suggest getting rid of ALL Dina K images, perhaps keep one. I counted 14 making me wonder if it is your port or DinaK's. Below is one example that should go.

I love your AVI as well as it's relative image
http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/110615/14/4df921758458c_m.jpg

but why did you post both. Wouldnt you rather prefer getting 22 comments on one image rather than getting 10+12 comments? too late now but a lesson for the future.

You do have a great look and your port does show it. Would love to work with you.

Sounds good Thanks

Get rid of Lisa, second image in the third row. The capture of her lleft breast in this angle is not particularly flattering.

Your overal port is a visual feast and quite creative/ My favorite is the first image of the third row for its unique pose and light. Cant show the link here as its  a nude.

Thanks for the warm compliments.  It will be gone soon.

Is the blonde biting her lips? While she is beautiful, her expression is not interesting. Delete her.

Nice light, background bokeh but Laura's  expression is dead. She must go.

Jovi is my favorite for her emotive expression pose and great B&W implementation.

Not a fan of Apryll's expression and her contrived pose. The image does not match the caliber of your port. She is beautiful but she must go if you want to bring your port a notch higher. If you are still not sure about deleting it, you should note Apryll chose NOT to display this image in her own port.
http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120124/11/4f1f0b7045f9d_m.jpg

April is my favorite and she is the right choice for your AVI.

My wife is Chinese so I appreciate the traditional Chinese culture including the wardrobe, which you so well display in the image below. I love your qi pao dress and the traditional makeup to highlight your  porcelain white skin. You show emotive expression. The composition and POV are superb.

As mentioned before, dupicate images of the same scene must go. This includes your barn series where you raise your hands in a contrived pose. Cant post them here as these are nudes. Keep only one image from Christian Argon series

My fav is the B&W below as it shows your true beauty.http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120130/12/4f26fc83c2d44_m.jpg
Delete its twin color version, so as not to confuse the viewer. Keep up the great work.

Dont bare your chest as you have no chance of competing against the multitude of hulks lurking on MM. Plus your body is limp with attitude to match. Get rid of this image fast.

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120624/18/4fe7c3f00228d_m.jpg

Your AVI was the right choice. I like the preppy/corporate image you project here, something you should continue cultivating in your subsequent shoots.

While model Khan is gorgeous, several of her images are ruined by raising her hands to make a contrived pose. Plus you have posted too many images of her from the same scene in Thailand. Get rid of a few of these.

Peve Sok's B&W image on the other hand is superb displaying character and emotion. Your AVI rocks too.

141 images is way too many images to pack in one's port. You should put as few as possible. Consider your port your showcase and art gallery where you display only your very best, not the mediocre. Only chose one image from any particular shoot and get rid of the variants. Get rid of those where you are just smiling and there is no unique concept behind. Get rid of those which have been sitting there for a few months and get only one or two comments. Delete and delete (or hide) until you got 40 or less left displaying. I know it hurts, just like it hurts pruning a beautiful blooming tree, but if you dont do it, the tree will grow out of control. And once you do finally cut your port to a minimum, you will boost its quality by 200%. Ok, enough pontificating. Below are a few that definitely MUST go:

You are just smiling plus you posted a better variant. You are also posting this red dress too many times
http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120429/22/4f9e22d847839_m.jpg

Pretty dress, sour smile:
http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120325/15/4f6f99ffcc851_m.jpg

Over photoshopped, weak expression
http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120330/20/4f767f1f3fb6a_m.jpg

Not flattering at all
http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120401/21/4f792a9ded159_m.jpg

Now my FAVORITES:

Nice dress to show your curves
http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120101/21/4f01455f4884d_m.jpg

Great POV and light
http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120325/16/4f6fa3ca3ae3f_m.jpg

Good luck and have fun!
