I have uploaded my first photos so someone please comment on them, there might be one that you really like.

Seriously though there is one that I have really spent time over thinking and it has turned out great.

There's only one I'd consider near portfolio quality...

I have problems with your other images. It's just my opinion though.

From the critique guidelines. Somehow you neglected to read the guidelines before posting. Since I had nothing better to I thought I would share #4.

{4} Do not just ask for love. Do not just ask for people to post comments on your pics pages. Do not just ask for tags. There is an Announcements feature on the front page and the Shoutbox is also available for this sort of thing. This is a place to ask for serious help and advice toward improving your work.

Unless you're a really hot chick, people will really scrutinize your images before they leave comments.

Critique isn't the place for comment whoring. Check out shout & announcements on the main page.

Also, we are not allowed to critique nor find fault when giving comments, so I'm not able to do so at this time.

Shoot & practice more. Good looking model, but I'm not enthralled with the teddy bear nor your lighting.

Let us know if you're interested in actual critiques.

All I wanted was to see what people thought of my work, maybe some advise and encouragment.

Damn people show some love.

Your concepts aren't too terrible. You do need to know what a good exposure is. You have some under exposed images...naked gal with teddy bear...too dark. Not flattering at all. Also you need to edit the skin here and there an make it more appealing as far as skin is concerned.  Focus issue on the mask, if you were going for focusing on the eye under the mask you missed it. If it was to blur the eye and just get the mask then you nailed it. Your intention of the shot is missed on those images.  You should get some Scott Kelby books and practice some techniques.  Not trying to be mean to you or anything but you are in critique forum so be it.  You need to work on that lighting really. Lighting is as important as focus and composition.  Lighting determines the mood, look, and appearance among other things. Your photos don't show any sign of experience at all....

The light speaks what the image can't say in words... Just think of it that way.

This is a nice red, but take more care with your framing.
I think somebody was standing to close when you got the shot of the backdrop.

I'll assume you were asking for some portfolio critique.

This image is under-exposed : http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/32132371  It's not a bad image otherwise, and if you fix the brightness it might be a lot better.  I'd also suggests some minor skin touchup (unless you're a purist, of course).

I would like this image if the focus was on the eye (where i think it should be, and i think you wanted it to be): http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/32132202  (and the same with the other mask image)

This one...is probably a mistake?  Not sure what you're trying to do with this image, but even if you want it to just be her feet, i think you should have not cut off half of one: http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/32132200

Overall, i see lots of potential, but there are several easily-fixed things i'd suggest you correct.  Not a bad start, do some more research, experimentation, and don't get discouraged.

OP, there isn't a single shot that looks good.   Not one.   Your work screams I'm lazy.   If you have access to that
model who has a fantastic figure by the way get her too shoot some more.   This time get creative with your lighting.   Forget silly props and masks.   Focus on the lighting.
