Zak,

this is very good work, you're getting better with each shooting - do you want to earn a living with photography?

regards,

Fisheye

Hey Zak, they are great!!

1 - Excellent !! My favorite #1

2 - Very good, althoug I don't like at all where is she watching

3 - Good experiment, but the two kind of ligth make the white balance very difficult, I don't like the final colors.

4 - Awsome, 4-1 -

5 - Great "rembrandt" effect on her face. My favorite #2

6 - Very good, but I don't like the ligth on her rigth arm

7 - Wow!! My Favorite #3

8 - Great, the only thing I don't like in this pict are her earrings

9 - very nice illumination, but her upper stomach- lower chest doesn't look good

10 - Very nice, here her earrings look great!!

Congratullations!!!!

All of them are great, I'm being very critic, hope you don't mind.

With the exception of 4, 4-1 and 6, these are great. 4/4-1 the pose is not good. 6 looks like you got a little to close.

#9 is my favorite an had the most potential but I think I see some cloning duplication on the top left 1/2 of the image (rug). If its not clone duplication it sure looks like it and draws attention. I would clone over that. Also the crop has left the bottom of the ribcage and stomach area looking odd.

#7 Hands position, shoulder tilt, leg position are all great. I don't mind the looking away so much but a stare right into the camera would have made this shot. Not sure about the crop and spotlight effect.

Most of the images are on the soft side, some more than others.

Very good work. Definitely your best to date.

Thanks,I appriciate your comments specially by choosing your favourite ones .

Almost every photo was with lot of proccessing in PSD (#5 was the only without proccessing) and took me few days to prepare for showing since I have a regular job and I have only evenings to work on, and I would like a lot to have possibilities to earn money by photograph-ing.

Hope to have more comments to overview the differancesof like-ings.

Thanks

Zak

Some nice looking shots, but watch the light always it's better to expose a little under than a little over.

Love the many different moods.

That looks better on the edit. I still see a couple of clone duplications but only because I knew where the problem was the first time. Probably not noticable to a first time viewer.

Good work.

I think that taking into consideration that I'm begginner it is good session...(I still have 5 or 6 more photos to prepare for showing in few days)....but....

there is still some more improvements that I see...

for example: in Global, all of the photos are a little soft I think...and some post-processing are not good enough like on #8 photo the processing under her left under eye skin is showing that I have used a clone to to kill the shadow....but...

I hope for the next session to be better.....

Zak
