I took this shot in a sailing dock before sunset. I know that it is not perfect, but actually it is an experiment with your taste. I hope that you will like it.

You asked for my comment so here it is :) This is not a bad shot and if this is only the 2nd time you take a real stab at portfolio photography I can´t wait to see more. However, there are a couple of things, her pose first. Having her knees like that in the frame kindof draw the attention there, I think sitting more straight and bending the knees to either side would have helped this photo. I don´t usually cut off the head like that when shooting a half body photo, sure it works sometimes but here I think I would have wanted to see her whole head and maybe what´s behind her, so also the slight looking downard at the model is not maybe the best way to go here, I don´t know what was behind her so maybe I am wrong but that´s just my impression of the photo.

The rest is pretty good, good lighting and focus/dof and all that is like I said, pretty good.

One of my favorites in the challenge. Nice job with the crop and exposure.

Reminds me of a clothing advert... pretty sure that's a good thing(?)

But why'd you chop the top of her head???

Nice shot but I find the models knees distract from the shot. IMO it may have been better to either crop the shot or perhaps have had the model stretch her legs so that it was only skirt in shot.

Don't care for her head chopped off a bit at the top but overall it's a nice shot
