I'm in. I'll take both love and hate. If I have to choose, I'll take 5 you love and 5 you hate.

I see you don't shoot, or do nudes, now.

But if you don't mind seeing them, I'd love your thoughts, you were a fantastic model.

Edit; both if they apply.  Hopefully you don't dislike TOOO much.

I guess I should post back stories on a couple images.

The "purple skin, yellow light" is all natural sunrise ambient light. Cool light of the blue morning sky (purple skin effect) and the yellow light is the actual sunrise light from the opening on other side reflecting off the sulfur elements of the inside of the rock. Actual exposure and no color enhancing whatever, scouts honor.

"Gimmicks" photo is strictly for avatar reasons, the original got the ole Red Screen, haha... so as at first look, yes I agree.

"Airplanes" is an actual capture at LAX runway approach, not PSed in case there was doubt.
Thanks Kess for taking time to critique wink

Still a big fan of your work, wish you were still modeling.
