I like things obscuring the view, it makes me feel like I'm there. You could have been bolder with this effect.
Atmospheric and moody, while remaining quite minimal. I think this feels contemporary.
Like the blown out back which still renders the model and clothes properly, it fits the feel of the clothes and the capture of the model mid-move feels contemporary and lively.
Right: Not so keen on this model from this angle and the colours are maybe just a bit too blown...
A lovely pose. On my monitor I can see the attempt to recover detail from hair on the right and it doesn't look very precise. Also the burning of the face on the right looks smudgy, although it does give the photo more volume. Lightroom?
Personally I like things that reference bad taste. And these next two images work for me and could go even further. I see a lot of cut-outs like this and they work.
In the rose-bordered one my eye goes straight to the model's stomach which is left much paler than the rest of her skin.
Nice enough. Not very strong but could work in a story.
The gradient on the right of the face that fades into the background looks artificial. The hair suggests this is a cut-out plonked on a black colour layer.
Composition fail. She's too central. But the smudgy black and white gives it quite a raw look which I like.
This next set is good. Well lit, consistent styling, good model. Occasionally the retouch pops out because skin blur looks artificial on cheeks.
He's starting to look a bit blank. Still has some presence though.
Not so good. Obvious blurring on cheeks on the left, bored and moody on the right and can't think of a good pose.
Overdone retouch on the face. He looks like he's had reconstructive surgery. Be careful not to obliterate detail and keep on top of contours, otherwise you end up with synthetic-looking results. Otherwise well framed an acted and a good idea.
A good idea but the model doesn't use the space well in this shot, which is too wide. Shot at high ISO with daylight streaming through the windows and adding to flare it looks like there wasn't much point in making this about detail. You could have posed her using the railings, moving with a slower shutter speed to add some controlled trails. The result isn't very punchy.
