Lovely shot, great skin tones and I love the way her hair gets shorter closer to the shadow. (If it were not for the rules would you have softened the neck on the right a bit?) Nice shot!

The centred composition works great here. I like the clean, crisp feel of this shot. Great model.

I'm really torn on this one because the model, expression, makeup, lighting, hair, and focus are all fantastic. But, I really don't like the crop and composition, I'm not at all adversed to tight crops and central compositions but I don't think it works here. The crop is either too tight or not tight enough, it's like the frame is fitting round the head rather then positioned and then the central composition adds to the discomfort of that. Still love it though, great lighting

This has a very Twiggy factor to it! Love it, the only thing I see I might have done was run it through neat image to smooth out the skin a bit more, but still a very cool pic! Beautiful eyes!

I like the portrait, crop, lighting, colors, just perfect. I feel this is what I would want my portraits to look like when I begin trying them. Negative space is good here on the sides, makes her more imposing. Her hairstyle is really cool, I must say, very futuristic. That 60s style with the makeup meets 2012 here. Eyes could be more smiting, but blonde hair is easy to overexpose. 9

dramatic portrait could be used in a 'Hair' mag.

Technically excellent! Wonderful model as well. I think the composition/crop leaves something to be desired however.

I would have used a square crop, or the rule of thirds for this...the model is very pretty, 1960's Twiggy looking, very nice 7
