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.

http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/19704468 how much noise there is in the shadows
http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/29885264 how the face looks like it isn't really in focus, but not on purpose

http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/30586429 how soft and pretty your face looks

http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/26321568 not being afraid to make different faces
http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/27016697 how relaxed you look on camera

http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/26262636 how your arms and face look stiff and armpit pictures in general
http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/27787664 how you lost your neck
http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/26321568 how you could have pushed the expression in the face just a little further to make it that much better
http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/30070195 armpit, also a little more arch in the back would have made this even better
http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/28829660 how stiff your body looks

Thank you smile

http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/5055404 as a general rule, pictures of yourself if you are the photographer
http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/26874101 how the gray bars are making me wonder if the whole picture feels a little gray
http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/26873648 how half of her face almost looks like it is glowing

On this one I actually did a the point on the floor for focus because of low light. This was a spontaneous shot while we were resting after shooting some leaps. Great catch.

Thank you -  I have been needing help to see some of my images more critically so that I could do some culling of the port...

however, on this one

http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/29475115 that i can see on the background where you edited the stray hairs

it was shot with a ringlight - the shadow you see all the way around her body is a typical ringlight artifact

I appreciate your time - 

I know I need to take a lighter hand with some of my edits,  and you've identified a few images I can part with

Cheers

http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/30539821 the forehead/eyes being in shadow on the bottom image
http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/30551617 how much better i like the bluer toned image on the left, which makes me like the right image less
http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/30582314 how, instead of feeling soft, this image just feels a little muddy
http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/30732924 how interesting the light is in the leaves, but how flat it is on the model
http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/20181235 the color of the yellow wall

suresure- no problem smile
i think maybe it isn't the shadow, but there is a lightness in the shadow right above the head just to the left of the center that cuts in to the shadow from the hairline?

I'm always down for some feedback. Not a lot to go on in the profile, as there hasn't been much time to update, but hopefully that changes this weekend!

Hit me with your level-headed critique.

Looking at it right now, I realize I could definitely do with some more body shots.

http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/9028375 the dullness/loss of detail in the highlights (hard to explain- looks like it was close to blown out and you lessened the output of the greens in levels to give it a dull purple color)

http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/24513502 that there is light on her stomach but not her face
http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/22899045 for this--- the top image, i feel, does not fit the lovely/dusky mood of the others
