Hey Jeff, have to agree with the others on these. Is this at the 17th ave trestle? If so, good spot for this...

I like the pose best in the second, but the first is potentially the most interesting because of the lighting. I would have liked to have seen a more dynamic pose with the same lighting because the balance between sun as a back light and fill flash on the front is really very nice.

BAcklighting on the hair in #1 is very nice. I would have preferred a little illumination on the face to eliminate the dark shaddow -- perhaps using a reflector.

#2 is nice as well...RR tracks make for an interesting background.

#3 & 4 have too much flare for my taste.

Thanks guys!

i only used a gold reflector in 2

that is lens flare from the sun in 3&4

It is the tracks off of 17th next to the boat ramp, and 1&2 are off of senic hw a little south of I10

and on 4, i had a strobe to my back left and a gold reflector to my back right (propped up with my f5 and 70-200 :O ) and the back lighting on that one was natural.

Hey Jeff, I really like #2 - love the light in this one! But I have to say, my skills in this kind of photography are about zero

To be honest with you, i have 0 experience in this kind of photography. I bought a 5 in 1 reflector that day, and it was the first time i used an off camera flash besides at my house....

Try a crop of #1 as a portrait. For me the ambience just detracts a tad from the beautiful backlighting of her hair. Also as suggested decreasing the shadow on the left side of her face a tad with Photoshop or equivalent.
