Photo 1
You have all the space behind you but have lost your foot

Photo 2
Interesting
But would love to see your beautiful eyes
[Arch that back, lower shoulder toward camera for long looking neck]

Photo 3
Not so much, pose not flattering

Photo 4
Think long fingers
Hair band on wrist
Those eyes need to be in focus

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Argh, I'm afraid it's one of those cases where it's "none of them".

I love #1 - but it's a shame the photographer cut off your foot in the shot.

#1: Terrible composition (the photographer's fault, not yours). Your body is dead-center (lots of dead space to your back) and your foot is chopped off. That's a bummer; this could have been a great shot.

#2: Nice use of light, but you're kinda gray. And I wish you weren't wearing those sunglasses.

#3: See above. Interesting pose.

#4: Terrible snapshot. Badly lighted, out of focus, noisy, badly composed.

None of them are up to your port's current standards.

Damn number one was gorgeous. Sucks they cropped it out sad Maybe if its cropped in a little tighter it can be salvageable.

I like the first one but it looks like the photographer sneezed when he hit the shutter, it's badly framed...

You look amazing in the shot tho but to bad the photographer screwed it up!

#1 is the best pose, but the foot being cut-off is a no no.

2 and 3 show off your legs really well too.

keep one even w/ the cut off foot...fashion shots in magazines seem to ignore rules of cropping...cutting off limbs at joints, weird crops, etc.

It's the best of the 3 you posted...wish the foot weren't cropped as well..

Keep #1, maybe crop it into a square, and maybe cut off your foot even more.

The others don't show you off enough, so don't keep them.

yup...

that cuttin' off the foot thing has made me trash a few of my fav photos..

and also prevented me from shootin' with that same shooter again.. http://a4.ec-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/147/083b307e34474cc0b3f5f3cf297adeda/l.gif

I agree with everyone else. Number 1 is great but the foot was cut off, I'm sure it can be salvaged with a cool crop though. I also like number 2 but I think it feels like you're not well lit or too dark, kind of like it lost detail in your dress

My thoughts too - crop it close to the back and the feet won't be such an issue.

I actually like #1 of the 3 - it looks more 'professional' to be honest and the pose shows a lot more confidence.

Of the others, #3 is better. Really #2 looks more like a shot from a friend's cellphone - not so good.
