I think I'm gonna go with 6.  I think you have some good expressions going on in some of your images and some great soft, lo-fi images (I love the ones in front of the glass).  I feel like some of your images are just a little lower quality and you're just not my style of model.  The one with the green background isn't a fav, you look really awkwardly posed and I feel like fashion just isn't your strong suit because of your dimensions.  You're doing great with the art nudes though so keep it up!

7-8 I think.  I really love your work with natural lighting, you certainly know how to shoot a good softly lit glamour portrait.  I just feel that there's some that stand out as cheesy or more amateur looking.

These are the first two I noticed (in the second one it's mainly the outfit I don't think works.  The hot pink satin just looks low end to me but it might be cause I don't shoot glamour. )

7.  You have some really good images in your port but the thing that bothered me the most was your avatar image.  The crazy blurred background just looks weird to me and the models tan lines aren't flattering either.  Your first two rows of images are great though, I would almost suggest trimming down the rest.

6. I like some of your images, but I wish the concepts were executed a little more professionally, you need to think more about styling, accessories and lighting to match.  You also really need to work on your post work.

I saw this image and was so excited when it was small but then I saw the blurred out black around the hair and it ruined it for me. 

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120621/06/4fe31da457a8f_m.jpg  This has always been on of my favorite pictures in your port.  I really feel like if you shot more like this you'd be unstoppable

4 but not so much because your 61 but more the style and quality of photos that are in your port.  I like #1,2 and 4 but I really wish you had some more dramatically shot art nudes or a really high contrast portrait, just more high quality fine art in general like the images I listed.

5-6.  The bottem 3 images are easily your best; shot decently and you look stunning.  The styling could be a bit better but that's ok. You have good dimensions for glamour model and even some fashion so just keep working with better photographers and practice your posing, you look kinda stiff in some images.

7.5.  You have some nice editorials in your port.  I particularly like this one

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120907/15/504a780b45296_m.jpg

These two though just pull down your port I think

Also you might wanna remove any images with blurred skin or just reedit them.  It's a huge red flag for amateur retouching techniques.

7.5.  I think all your photos have a really good quality to them, I think it's just too much commercial work for me personally.

I really love this image http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/130825/17/521a9ba6940cc_m.jpg the models expression and the composition are great.  I almost just wish she had a reflector on her face cause she's still a little dark.  I also really dig the images of the blonde with short hair in the grey shirt.

Thank you for reinforcing what I was thinking. I do have dramatic art nudes but they were done about 10 years ago and I don't think they are useful today. I will definitely make it a point to do more of that sort of images in the future.

6.5-7.  Some really decent erotic photos and art nudes but some are a little lesser quality.  I think your port shows you have an alright understanding of posing the body.  I still think you could improve a little bit on the styling and composition of your images, your just missing something to get that extra bit of drama I think.  I just can't put my finger on it cause I don't shoot nudes  :p.  I think this image and your avatar are some of your most interesting pieces

5.  Like the other poster, you kinda have your age working against you.  You have some nice art nudes and some portraits but your edgy fashion/glamour work just looks cheesy to me.

Nope it doesn't and 6.5-7.  You have one or two great images but the rest are just kinda missing that special something.  I think you need to focus a little bit on your post it stands out as something that needs some work

These are some that I just don't think measure up to the rest of your port

5-6.  I think you actually have a pretty good look for a model I just think you need to work with some better photographers who will shoot better styled images. 

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/130902/09/5224b73fd4f4d_m.jpg

The outfit, pose and location in this one just look cheesy and you might wanna ditch it from your port. You avatar is really nice though and shows you have potential.  Try to keep things simple and classy.  If you need inspiration look at TONS of high end fashion/glamour photos and practice their poses in the mirror before shoots.

8-8.5, some awesome fashion shots in your port, I love this one http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/130827/09/521ccf04d2522_m.jpg 

You really seem like you understand lighting and styling and image, especially in the studio.  Maybe just work on getting some more location shots in your port is all.

7-7.5.  I think you have some wonderfully styled images in your port and some with great composition, I think some just leave a little to be desired.  You need to work a little more on lighting and maybe on your post work in your higher fashion images. 

I actually think this is one of my favorite images because of the story it kinda portrays,  http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/130221/02/5125fad39cf00_m.jpg

Your avatar is also one your your best.  Shot wonderfully and looks pretty high end to me.

Well thanks! I recently discovered that my photos on MM look absolutely horrible compared to the original ones I uploaded. MM makes my colors look funky aswell as everything looks a little too dark... Dunno if this is a problem everyone is having, or if I just did something wrong...
