The sun was shining bright from behind this vision of beauty. She was kind enough to tolerate a few shots.

I like this idea, but I think you have just oversharpened the image a little. Too bad.

A crop jus above the breasts would have worked better. Great backlight!

a bit too contrived (why is she wearing snorkel gear in a swimming pool?)

Not particularly interesting composition. Backlighting doesn't seem to add much here.

Compelling - wonder why? Hidden delights, perhaps. Crisp and sparkly with nicely captured skin tones.

Good pic, focus is sharp.

Good use of backlighting. Probably should have waited a little after the dive so there wouldn't be a pressure mark above her lip from the mask. At first glance it appears much like a mustache. I don't know why but my eyes are very drawn to the stretch marks. Not such a big deal as the photo has a very natural feel but still somewhat of a distraction.
