My first post here, despite being a member for years.
Please take a loot at my port and tell me which photos should stay and which should go?

what are your goals?

maybe it's time to focus on one genre, study it, put together a solid group of 10 shots in that genre, then move on to the next one.

I guess my goals are to show that i am adaptable.
I dont really want lots of the same image as it shows i can only do one effect/style.
A photographers port should show that they can turn their hand to various looks to try and attract models or paying customers (or so i believe).

Having said that, it could also be looked at as being a 'jack of all trades', but master of none.

Reviewing this image from a technical portrait perspective
The models nose should not protrude past the outline of the far cheek as your does
Either rotate the head for a true profile, or back toward camera
Areas of image come across as over exposed, forehead, tip of nose, cheeks
To give the illusion of a long neck lower shoulder toward camera
The bright area between hands and chin is distracting
Wonder if the bead area of headband should have more detail lighting

Light seems quite high, as models brow is shadowing upper part of eyes
Details, lint on black dress
Some fly away hair [Found using a dryer sheet to gently dab hair, not rub works wonders]
Lower shoulders
Think long beautiful fingers

I’m not a fan of multiple images, would rather concentrate on a single image at a time
But of the group prefer the model with the pink umbrella

Ultimately you need to make the decision on what stays and goes, just some thoughts to ponder

Wish you continued success!

Advice taken on board.
I have changed the indian head dress one to a shot that is better framed.
I will work on the others as i can.
