It's more a tractor shot than a model shot.

Depends on what your expectations for MM are.

Wanna attract models? Post great images of models.

Wanna show off your skills, post anything you want. But don't expect models to beat down your door.

Just my opinion.

I would keep these and then build up from there:

Thank you smile Both of you. I really appreciate it. I feel it's easy, atleast for me, to be raher 'blind' for my own photos. So glad you replied smile

I like a lot of your images but I would just suggest removing some of the "duplicate" shots from the same shoot. You have a couple of instances where there are two shots of same model, same outfit, same location.

I also prefer the glamour shots more than the portrait-style and am a big fan of your use of natural lighting.

Fantastic

You've got some good stuff, but I would definitely get rid of the 3 with this makeup look:

She's a beautiful model, but that makeup is terribly unflattering (mostly the eyebrows), almost hard to look at.

If you're going to shoot models with breast implants, pleeeeease retouch the scars.  Visible implant scars can ruin an otherwise gorgeous image.

This is my favorite, great lighting:

Thank you smile

I understand what you mean when it comes to the models make-up, but that's the look she's going for so the makeup's not my work. But I'll defintly take it in consideration.

When it comes to the nude shots, I am aware of the scars. the Shot's were taken to a charity project where imperfections and such should not me edited, since the women in the project should show ''their true nature''. But I see your point. Maybe I'll re-post a new retouched veriosn of them later.

Again, Thank yoU!
