The first two, in my monitor, are too white and lose details.

The first 2 are just to bright.
The bottom one seems almost jaundiced or was that the effect you were trying for.

Hi BZChi7d. I know nothing but. Im not mad on the first one maybe its all the background but im not sure. But really like the middle pic. like the bleached out look. Think I would have preferred a tighter crop with tad more detail, but I woulden't know how to do it. cheers mark

i think you went a little too far on the purposeful overexposure of the first 2. instead of emphasizing cheekbones etc, it has just washed out all detail.

the 3rd one has bit too much of a yellow/green cast to it to be pleasing. i like the desaturated old-style look of these types of shots, but you need to work on the color of it to make it a little more neutral.

My opinion is "bad". What is your opinion? Thats the only one that counts. If you like them thats fine. I dont think you will be getting any rave reviews though.

Yeah, as has been mentioned the over exposure, purposeful or not, makes the shots lose too much detail. I like the third one a lot but you do need to get rid of some of the yellow - perhaps by desaturating it a bit?
