Very nice. I do think #4 would be better if you had the same nice more shadowless lighting as the first 3.

Thank you. I played with that idea, but once all the shadows were gone the pose looked very awkward.

Nice shots. I like the composition of #2 and #3 the best of the 4 (#2 more closely follows the rule of 3rd's without cropping out the bike.)

I didn't mean the shadows cast by the model but was more referring to the overall lighting of the background. Here is an example of what I thought might work better:

We're talking about the same thing. I edited the image like that first time and it looked to flat. I think shadow in the background adds dimension to the whole shot.

Well, I never did make my self clear I guess. What I was trying to get at is the color of the shadows. It seems to me that your #4 has a distinct color cast in the shadow areas. I went too far in my original example, and perhaps that wasn't very clear. Here is another example where I've done nothing but remove the color cast from the shadows. Note also the color of the blue jeans in the two examples.



The upper is without the cast, the lower is the original. In your other three shots I didn't see this same color cast in the shadows.

Does this make any sense?

Cheers,
rfs

Not sure why there is a color cast to the shadow.
The background is pure white, unlit and the color always comes out like this.

This is on my cove with no background lights other than one spot light.
note: On the first two images the background is lit with two umbrellas.
