First one looks somehow over-exposed.

Second looks good, but I don't like the pose. Looks painful... and possibly fatal. (Unless that's what you were going for.)

Like the third; exposure still looks a little hard/bright.

Oooohhhh....I like it!

The model has a starkly distinctive look about her with her chemical (as in: not found in nature) hair color, unusually creamy skin, finely shaped eyebrows, and piercings.

The post process also adds this...well....processed look. It matches perfectly with the model's appearance, and gives the model an almost otherworldly look about her that is very interesting.

I really like the shots of the model too, she looks so different in the three shots. I had to look carefully to see if that was really the same girl. Good stuff!

I like it! It starkly brings out the reds in her hair and that's attention-grabbing (in a good way). The second one has a nice play of light-and-shadow but the upper left is too bright for me. Can you dial down the whiteness in the skin tones just a little? I basically like it but it's a bit too white/bright.

I dig them. I like the play with shadows. The lighted areas are so crisp and brilliant every detail just pops.

Jeff, the whites look ok on my end, though they are a bit bright. Problem with web images is everyone's monitors are a little different. Here's a calibration strip, let me know how this looks for you. She is a pale girl so where I see pale might be a hair too pale for your monitor. Or I could be a hair darker, y'know?

Every time I look at the last image, the first thought in my head is "Rebel Flag". For some reason, the red hair with the blue and white bandanna reminds me of a rebel flag, and it stands out from the rest of the photo. It's kind of a subliminal thing, like if I look directly at her face I catch it from the peripheral. Maybe because the hair comes down like an X.

Nice! The first two have some lighting issues but the two where she's squatting against the wall I really like--the blue and re graffiti makes a great echo of her hair and clothes--and the close-up profile is excellent.

I see all 11 shades of grey so my monitor is fine. I knew that she had pale skin tones from previous shoots so that didn't throw me off. Actually I like the whole shoot... except... umm well....hate to say this.... but...uh.... well....:rolleyes: ... uh... her pants are torn.


:lol:

Looks great Bob.

See you in Chattanooga soon.

Bob Bob Bob...how many times do I gotta tell ya...composition composition composition! LOL!
Try not to cut off limbs at the joints buddy...elbows, knees, shoulders, wrists, etc.
Im seeing a bit of discoloration on the shot where she is sitting on the rock facing us.
The 2nd to last shot has a slight blue tint to it as well.
Your lighting is getting a LOT better now!
Also try a lower F-stop for a better DOF
I like this series you did!
Well done!

Bob, Cool shots. I especially like the up-close facial shot. I seem to like the pics that have some light playing on her face opposed to her face being in the shadows. I seem to like the gold of she sun shining on the paleness of her face shows a cool contrast.

Yeah, I remember those now! I'm a sucker for RED hair, and not natural red, but almost glow in the dark red, plus she's ... yeah. She looks like she lost some weight too I think.
