I'll just describe my reaction to opening your port - first it was a WTF!? and a bit of a heart thump, then it was laughter and then just a head shake with disbelief and some sadness. I also wonder where you were locked up during your absence from MM.

Funny you have some degree of warmth and pleasantness in your avatar shot which is a great set up for the disturbing and pitiful photos inside.

It might not be what you hoped for but its honest and I have been looking a portfolios all day and this one had the greatest impact.  Just wish I hadnt done it as I was about to go to bed smile

Any way hang in there- pun intended

If that's the kind of work you like and want to be known for, then I think many of the images are quite good. However, ...

I would lose the first one on the first row because the second one is better and you don't need two similar ones. On the second row I would lose at least one, and probably both of the last two. The lighting is flat and uninteresting and the headpiece does nothing good for you.

On the third row I would lose the second from the left. It doesn't really say anything except that somebody naked is under a dressing table.

You have three shots from a wrecked, abandoned building. The strongest is the final one where you are leaning against the wall. I would abandon the other two.

Finally,I would lose the final image. In fact, that's the first I would lose, if culling.

i think you've got a great figure, but i dont think your portfolio is living up to your potential. surely you've seen better rope bondage photos, and better art nudes. what's holding you back?

this is better than the shots you've got on your mm page, in my opinion.

what i assume to be the new images are very dark and need to be brighter. i mean as far as lighting goes, not mood. Some of your what i assume are older photos have terrible framing and should be deleted immediately.

The light is too high, which is causing the dark  band across the top of your eyes, and long shadow under nose, lips and chin
