Hottie. I'm sorry, you did not directly ask for comments but that's what happens here usually and I think most appreciate the different perspectives. Think you could do something about the impression marks from her jeans that shows on her left hip area in #8, though. Tight pants. #10 tilts a wee bit to the right and her dress bunches up around the back strap of her bra; seems that could be smoothed up a bit for a nicer effect. This is a nice lot of photos; I enjoyed them.

Hey thanks for taking the time to comment
Critique is always welcome, whether i ask for it or not.

Glad you enjoyed the photos, I see the areas your talking about and wondered if i should fix them or not and then decided to leave them alone. Will give it a try and see if they look better

Thanks again
Bud

I was going to comment on individual pics but they are all lovely. #4 through #8 are exceptional in my opinion.

First impression for me was very positive. When I scrolled to #2, the big difference in skin and hair colour hit me hard. #2 is the "off" colour to my eye. A white balance change should do it.

I like the simplicity of the last shot, but #4, #6 and #7 are my pics. Nice work!

I have 2 edited like the first and do all my edits without major color issues etc. Some shots just appeal to me more and I usually have a play with them, he only thing that was added was a filter in PS to give it a green cast. I post them occasionally to see what others think of them.

Thanks for dropping by

+1 on the hair control. I would have liked to have seen #10 with the chair positioned a few more feet camera left. Overall, nice set!

Thanks Kevin
Now that it's been mentioned the hair is certainly in her face.

I can see how 1 and 2 seem like there is some color variance; 2 looks too "green" to me. I really liked the variety of PP and color in the shots. Beautiful model and fantastic pics.

Thanks Dude

The green color cast doesn't seem too popular.
I will deliver both a normal edit and the green edit just for variety.

Bud, nice series here! I liked quite a few of them, but none stood out as a favorite. Maybe No. 6. I really liked her body positions in this series. There were lines in her body, as opposed to standing there stiffly looking at the camera. Composition was a bit centered as a group, but you had lots of lines to give it balance.

A few nits, other than the aforementioned hair. On 4, I'm curious how you processed the eyes. It looks like it had a different post-process than her face. Or maybe it's all a little oversharpened. I know flickr does that to my pictures before I post them here. Really, my only other nit would be No. 10. In my opinion, you were shooting in the wrong direction of the sky. If you shot in the opposite direction, you would get the deep rich blues, pretty much like you got in that picture you added in a later post of her on the couch. But if you had gotten the deep rich blue sky, nice texture in the clouds, and then nailed the lighting on the girl, that shot (10) would have been totally a game-winner. But that's just my vision. I think a lot of people thought it was a game-winner as is. Nice job!

Thanks for having a look mate.
In regards to 4 I did saturate the eyes a little in PS just using the sponge tool at about 20%
I also add to most head shots a bit of local contrast using the unsharp mask at settings of 15 255 0
Then i add a levels layer and brighten the effect a little by moving the middle slider to the left a range of 1.00 to 1.20. I really like the way it makes my portraits pop. These days i hardly apply any sharpening the Nikon d800 produces plenty of detailed shots. Having said that i do have a little action that i made up that i rezise and sharpen for the web, but all the photos have that run on them.

With 10 the shots are both shot facing the same way the second i posted was a little further down the slope, I can always darken the sky a little to make it a darker blue and from memory the light was harsh in the second image and had to tone down highlights which contributed to the darker sky too...Here's a wider shot from the same location as 10







Thanks again for taking a look

Bud
