this was a grab shot using just window light while they were playing with some poses.. shot like ISO 800 just to get reasonably sharp.. converted to black and white and then added some noise to increase fine contrast.. does this work at all?

Wow! Window light. Looks like really big window! I would never noticed if you didn't mention it. I think it really works!

I like the composition and expression on the models face. But it looks out of focus to me ?

Its easy for me to like this as she is my favorite of the three. As I stated before, with her skin tone, she is a prime canidate for a nice color shot with a dark brown background... if you get the chance.

I lke the expression and pose. She appears very comfortable in this and the other shot you posted. Her hands are very relaxed and elegant. The very dark area to the right of her head might have used a little more light. Its hard to tell if that is all shadow or part of the apparel. The other models hand to the left seems a bit posed.

Yeah, seems a bit soft. Also, the knees are a distraction to me. I'd crop it horizontally just above the knees and at the top of the girl's head.

this is soft because it was inbetween sets and i didnt have alot of light to work with.. so its just borderline on too much camerashake blur.. i added the noise to bring a little more detail back and mask some of the blur.. but i think its a bit of a lost cause.. i just liked the pose on this one and wish i had some good ones.. always another time right?
