Hello all.
I'm a long time member and first time poster here. I'll introduce myself by introducing Britt. Comments and constructive criticism are welcome, appreciated and asked for but should be directed at the nimrod behind the lens and not the model.

Welcome Britt,
The main critique I can give on these images is that they seem soft and appear in need of sharpening. She is a lovely model and the exposure looks pretty good but it is especially noticable in the close up that the image is soft. It looks as if the shallow DOF is focused on the pearl necklace and not her eyes. It is especially important to get the eyes sharp even if everything else in the image is soft.
There are 2 other things about the closeup that bother me and that I would correct (if the focus were spot on) and they are touch-up of the mark on her cheek left by her sun glasses (could be stray fly-away hair) and the spot that appears to be a pimple on the apple of her left cheek.
On the long shots, I would have the model place the hand that is on her thigh or hip so that her fingers were not splayed so much - it makes for a better line if the fingers are closer together.
Thanks for sharing this lovely model with us.
- Chris

Thanks for the helpful suggestions Chris. The images appear to be sharper before uploading although I tend to prefer a softer look to my images admittedly.
Here's another of Britt that has the same sharpness applied to it but is more focused on her eyes (as you pointed out).
