Cracking stuff. Some really lovely portraits here. Nice posing and compositions.

Colour cast seems inconsistent across the images. White balance?

In 2 I'd like to see her eyes and eye sockets a bit lighter.

Nice set indeed.

Nice poses of a very lovely young lady.
Processing seems all over the map here though, with #1 probably being the most flattering to the subject. #2 is cyan, #3 is magenta, #4 again cyan, and #5 blue/cyan. The harsh light combined with the cast causes her face to almost look dirty in #5.
The sharp/centered catchlights caused by the direct-on flash are not my favorite.
The skin-smoothing is too much for me. I think the DOF is unnecessarily shallow on a couple of these, too, and that may also be contributing to the blurry effect of the face.
Cut-off foot in #4 although the other boot does help distract from it a bit.
All of these could be helped I think with some different post-processing but I think different on-site lighting would help, too. Maybe better use of a reflector or off-camera light with large modifier. When you have a model like this with baby blues like hers, you really need to get some light in there and capture that beauty.
You've got some very good equipment and a pretty good sense for a pose and for framing. I suggest working on the lighting and post-processing.

Thanks for the feedback. I am colorblind, so I do struggle with avoiding color cast. Guess I need to use my gray card more often!

Blimey. That must e a struggle for you.

Can you have something check images in a set to ensure they are consistent?

From a colour perspective all of these images are acceptable individually but as a set they are all over the place. The first is, as stated, the most natural and flattering for the subject. The second I would say is the most unnatural looking.

Some nice work, as already mentioned some color issues and for me some slight over processing in a couple. is my favourite.

Thanks for all the feedback, I really do appreciate it! I'll pay particular attention to white balance issues going forward.
