Hey all,
I am looking to rid myself of some pictures so I can make room for some others, and to just overall streamline my port. I've hidden and deleted quite a few, but I could use some help deleting some more.

Thanks in advance!
I'd also like if you could explain why you chose what you chose to go!

IMO these are the ones to keep:

http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/23382411
http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/21105107
http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/25149934
http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/23728565
http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/22331927
http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/28296578

Pick one of these:
http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/23709724
http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/21877067

and this because it is slightly fun and shows a bit of personality:

All the rest.....not so much. Don't really do you much justice. If I can expound just a bit, what I believe you need is more full body work. Looks like you have some good legs, but do you? Can't tell for sure. Also something to show off your curves better. The last thing is a true OH MY GOSH headshot. You are obviously very pretty and have quite the exotic look. So I am a bit surprised that you don't have one or two of those breath-taking killer headshots yet.

IMO once you nail those 3 things, your port will be 100% stronger.

Good luck!!!

I would thin out by:
Loose this one -http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/101227/14/4d19155c880ca_m.jpg
because this one is better http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/110117/00/4d33fd1641b84_m.jpg

because you have this one - http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120409/22/4f83c66c9014a_m.jpg

If you can get the photographer to retouch the ugly ass railing, keep it but if not scrap it, the splotches on the rail draw the eye away from you. http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/110401/23/4d96c06d82cad_m.jpg

I'm not a fan of this one - http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/110418/15/4dacbb4cea0b0_m.jpg I don't think the colour balance is right your skin looks green, other than that though it is a nice image.

To make it five, I would cut this one - http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/110307/06/4d74e806b31bb_m.jpg the white zipper draws my focus away from your beautiful eyes.

What ever you do, don't ever get rid of this one! -

Thank you very much! I'll take your advice.

Thank you! I'll make the cuts after a few more opinions.

One of the least flattering views is looking up the models nose no matter how cute it is

Blasting the camera with the whites of your eyes is also another non recommended pose
