The first thing that I notice about the image on the right is that the background is too cluttered, and the walkway/railing in the middle distance is not attractive. I have a tendency myself sometimes to focus entirely on the model in my viewfinder and ignore whatever is behind her until it is too late, so I know how it can happen. Also, the cropping of her left arm is a bit awkward. She needed to bring her hand up to be in the picture.

You may want to try warming them up by adjusting the color temp of the photos. This will help a great deal.

SteveB,

Could you go into a little more detail with your suggestion? I know as a beginner in digital, I don't know all the things you guys take for granted. If this was film, we would be stuck with the images the way they are. That is not the case in digital.

Scott,

It is crucial to get light into the yes. Do that first. Then, without losing that, get some light crossing her body to define her shape. Finally, or perhaps firstly, choose an uncluttered background or throw it way out of focus by using a long lens. Don't have a long lens? Use and uncluttered background.

Even at the beach, the models needs make up. Clean up her skin, define the planes, add some color etc. Knock down shine on her face with translucent powder applied with a puff, not a brush. Make sure her face skin color doesn't differ from her body when you do all the above.
