Dan,

R. Fredrick has always suggested not posting multiple images and asking for a critique, and I do agree with him. It is difficult to comment on so many at one time. One thing I will say is ... wrong selection of wardrobe for the blond lady. The soft vignetting is not something that helps either. Perhaps if you post one or maybe two and ask again it would be easier for those who wish to critique to do so.

THe headshot and the scarf over the neck are both flattering her to some degree

BUT the other two do not flatter her at all.

I agree the wardrobe choices are poor. However the angle and poses could be chosen better. - especially the pink dress - way to tight around the mid section. But given the model has chosen the wardrobe then the pose andangel should be adjuated to resolve the issues presented.

You asked for critique, and Lord knows I have plenty of opinions . . . probably about everything in this world. :-)

Of the four pictures of the blonde: my favorites are the top right and the bottom right photos. The top right one I would have cropped it a little bit tighter to remove some of the strong white from her dress that pulls my eye away from her face. I would have just cropped off about half of the lower dress portion and some of her left shoulder (camera right), but just a little bit of the shoulder.

The bottom right picture I would have added a small amount of space above her head so that she didn't look so scrunched at the top (like she is in a box).

The bottom left photo makes it look like her arm is missing and the pose makes her stomach stick out. The lighting also makes her right leg (camera left) look thinner than the left leg. I think a little bit more fill light from camera left would have helped that.

I also agree with ProShotPhoto that the wardrobe does not flatter her.

Well sir, I looked at some of your past posts and it appears that many comments have been made. Please understand my tone.. I am not trying to be rude nor am I putting you down, but after looking at your posts you always post multiple images, someties as many as 6 or more and ask for a critique. The problem with that is; in my opinion, in order to make fair and useful comments about that many images takes a lot of time, especially if the person is trying to evaluate each one. Wow! A person could take an hour to reply. I am realizing also this is a very large community with many people who just like to look.

May I most respectfully suggest that you post one or two at a time. But with that said, I did notice a post where that suggestion has already been made.

Well,, you might give it a try.

Seems like I've heard this refrain before. Check out your earlier post:

http://www.glamour1.com/forums/photo...tml#post234747

It takes a lot of time to review multiple photos as it is very hard to scroll back and forth from where one is typing to look at the photo. Doing a good critique of one photo is possible, but for multiple photos you just sort have to pick one thing and go with that as I did in my response in the above quoted thread.

Actually as I look back over the history of your posts you've gotten quite a few critiques to your photos, in fact, more than many others.

These are not your best photos by the way. You have previous posts where the work was better (as in your 6 month post).

The problem with the current crop is that there seems to be too many special effects (selective blurring, legs that disappear, etc. as well as exposure problems). Your logo looks nice, but is a bit overwhelming in some of the photos.

But I'll take time to comment on #4 since it has the most problems and probably the most potential. The big problem is the burnout on the right side where the hair, face and garment have very little detail. I think your light on that side was too hot. #5 has the same problem with blown highlights (maybe even more).
