First, since there is some nudity, these should be in the nude forum.

But all three photos have problems with "attention to details". #1 has door lines slanted to the left so the whole photo looks tilted. The white is quite overpowering and tends to draw the user eye.

#2 has the distracting window and the blown out quality of what is seen through the window. The pose is awkward with arm on left seeming not to know what it needs to do and the hand slightly showing.

#3 has most potential because their are fewer distractions but it is cropped too tightly (chopping off top of hair for example).

On all three the double copyright notice is distracting and has no advantage other than the distraction.

Is that a TimeEx Expedition watch in the first image? Whatever class that image had is now gone. Bad job.

Thanks Michael. Your quote on bad job - does that refer to the watch left in or to the overall feeling you get of this series???

Hi I am an amateur so please take my comments with-in this context, I am unable to offer advice on the technical side (exposure etc) but as an amateur I have the pleasure of seeing the art without the complications of seeing the technical error!
I like #2 in B+W the best it looks real rather than posed.

I like the distraction of the window again it confirms the reality of the shot
Because I think the shot is “real” I think the left hand is not awkward, to me it looks like she’s hiding something from the viewer – maybe its your car keys!
I love her long legs and the contrast of the buckles on her shoes
I think her hair lacks depth and looks flat and the shadow down her right arm has a similar contrast level to the arm so could do with some adjustment
I invite the professionals to comment on the reasons for this?

The watch. The photos overall are nice. I like them. #2 is my fav. That watch in #1 sticks out like a sore thumb and screams GWC. It really hurts me to see such good photos have that element in them. I would PS that out.

Don't worry, we've all done it before.

1 needs to have been shot from a slightly lower angle with the camera back parallel to the doors in order to avoid the tilting door effect.

that's what makes this sub-forum redundant and confusing. we have a main forum and a nude forum. each forum can be used by members for critique with them simply asking for C&C.
