Well, you totally blew this one, didn't you?

Cuz this ... just rocks. Every freakin' shot is hot. Thank god you didn't number these, cuz I'd have a hell of a time picking faves. But the 8th one down, and the 11th one down are both just sick. Nice that you had such a beautiful model to work with, but you just killed these shots. Nice job!

As usual, awesome stuff Gabe. Yeah, it's not the gear (though obviously it helps and make sit more fun).

If you number them I'd love to critique (because I know so much about portrait photography )

Very fine work! So tastefully understated, so much class.

Your work is truly inspiring.

Two quotes apply here:

"Creativity is spurred when there’s just enough pain to prompt thought, but not enough to keep you from clicking the shutter."

"The best camera is already always with you. The best sensor is your brain. The best lens is your eyes."

2L and 6 are divine (numbers! )
Great mood here with all of them, but I liked the button up shirt series less; that dress was a real winner (I know it was prolly getting colder).

Really gorgeous set Gabe. The tones and feel still look like you (which is a very good thing). How do you like the files by comparison to those from a dSLR? The one critique would be that most are center composed... is this a function of being unfamiliar with the camera or something you were going for?

Very nice. There are some expressions and compositions that I'm not a huge fan but it is hard to critique such beautiful images.

How much post processing went into these images?

Going to read up on your blog so if the answers are they don't worry about replying.

thanks.

yeah i wasn't that familiar with the focus and found with the back light it was having a hard time to focus...and i also kind of like centre focused portraits (i don't know why)

so i guess it was a combination of both...but seeing the set together i agree that there is a lot of similar compositions. next time i'll mix it up a little.

Mindblasting pictures!
but IMHO the #4 (because itīs B&W and others ainīt) and #13 (different color space) donīt belong to the group.

this is the best from the list in my opinion...i was amazed you were able to produce natural effects using nothing but your camera...the model too is very beautiful which added more substance to your scenes...but would be a plus if she is barefooted...thanks for sharing...

Very nice, Gabe. I'll never forget when somebody described your work as sitting down with a hot cup of coffee, or hot chocolate out on your back deck early in the morning, with a view of a mountain, or something like that. I totally agreed with that, and I feel like that every time I see your work. I love the orangey/gold rim light on her in a bunch of these.

Gabe,
I'm having a lot of trouble as well, to focus in these conditions, with the X100.
But still, it's a gem

Uh... what's the challenge? Pretty girl. Golden sky. Pretty girl. Crazy talent. Did I say pretty girl?

OK the one with falling leaves is good. But there is this leaf that landed right smack under her nose which lends a bit of humour to the result.
