Over photoshopped and unlike your other images, your smile is contrived. Delete.

great port, and here is one of my favorite as it conveys class, elegance, beauty. Great light and vintage rendering provide nice ambiance.

Mediocre B&W rendering with little contrast and not an exciting expression. An ok image, but has no "wow" factor. Delete it.

Your AVI is a superb image  - light , pose, composition, etc - editorial stuff. My personal favorite though is your nerdish, sensual look. Its close, its personal, curvy and super alluring.

You skipped me hmm

The makeup here is minimal, and you did not provide sufficient foundation thus exposing her skin imperfection from this closeup view. No excitment here.

I love this image, both for the model's beauty (as enhanced by your work), composition and photography

Compared to your other images, this one is the weakest due to the model's expression.

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/090317/17/49c03f0c75d11_m.jpg

While the following image got very few comments considering all the views, it is my favorite. The zipper, her pose and expression tell a story. I find it super erotic.

This  image   should be the first to go as it projects you  somewhat heavier than you really are. Even worse, your expression is undefined and the image is blurry.

Makeup, accessories and great photography enhance your beauty here. A truly gorgeous Cleaopatra look alike.

I always recommend posting only one image from one scene if the dress and concept are the same. Less is more. Here is an example and there are several other near duplicates in your posrt so you should delete them.


http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120623/20/4fe6873fb78e5_m.jpg

This one, while a bit over photoshopped is still breathtaking. In the future, make sure your photographer retouch work is moderate and less obvious.

Frankly I do not know much about plus size modeling field and what specifically would be prospective clients looking for. Should you look as heavy as possible ? Or is there certain ideal dress size? So I will avoid this issue.

Your first image expression to me means fright. Is that what you intended? If not, delete it.

Great light, composition and super B&W rendering here:

While the photo is beautiful, I dont perceive any unique hairstyle here.

Here is a dramatic transformation, however in the future I propose combining before/after in the same image for easier viewing and comparison.

Get rid of this couple image and its twin as this particular female pose and expression does not add to the value of your port

You only have three images, and they are good, so keep them all.  Here is my fave due togreat light, location and composition

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120813/12/50295047edeb6_m.jpg

In your future work, you ought to strive to display a wider range of emotions.

Sorry to lay this on you, but this image, which you got most comments, should go. While the wardrobe, pose and expressions are cute, you look way beyond your age, plus the pose is not flattering to your stomach.

This one is my fave. You look absolutely stunning, great pose and expression, and the photgraphy is superb.

You posted way too many images in your port, many are variations of the same concept. For example this one should be deleted but there are many such examples. Prune your port to leave only 20-30 images and  your port value will go up 200%

It is evident at a glance that you are a first class photographer. Your use of light, beautiful models in great pose placed in interesting setting help create visually pleasing, sensual, and often erotic images.

I think you went a bit overboard by posting too many images of Model Jenny. Yeah, she is gorgeoous, and you have done superb job capturing her beauty, but this is your port, not hers. You pick which ones to remove (or hide). One particular I would delete is this composite image as I see no unique concept, plus in general composites are a liability. Remember, less in more.

http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/29106034

As it is hard to chose your "worst"  it is even harder to select a favorite as I see many. Here is one of them for the  model's expression and pose. The light provides a great ambiance.

I propose deleting this composite s the sub images are too small to see clearly. I know the port is your resume and this is your tear sheet, but I recommend you pick one of the images and post that one only.

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120604/20/4fcd76851249a_m.jpg

Your AVI is superb and I also love this portrait series for its sheer beauty.

Julius, thanks so much for your feedback. Really appreciate that and totally agree with you on the montage and too many of one model.. A consequence of only doing it for 6 months part time, but hopefully I'll resolve that in due course with some more talent.

Thanks again

Like you describe yourself, I am also an "amateur", but this term in my mind refers to how I make my living (which is in the high tech), and hopefully does not imply my work is amateurish.

As a matter of fact, I find that many models and photographers on MM who are hobbyists,  show more creative work than the "professionals", BECAUSE their primary goal is art rather than profit, so they put their heart into it.

Regardless whether you charge for your work or not, I find your port to be superb. And like your MM name, yours is a work of LOVE.

Ok, now back to the original theme, which photo to delete. I would say your first one. It is a nice image, but unlike your others, there is no strong concept behind it. I would also recommend putting captions on your images as some concepts, while seemingly unique, need some explanation.

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120819/17/5031841b0561f_m.jpg


While you posted many great images, I love this one for its composition, light and ambiance.
