A & B
In the first shot the composition and relaxed pose work well with the
light and the outfit though I wouldn't mind seeing a little more of
the back shoulder to twist her body a little more to camera.
Also, her face is a little close to the tree line in the background
and would have stood out more with a bit more space.
Overall a good shot.
In the B shot the model looks tense and the background doesn't add
anything to the picture.
I don't know if it's glam, but I love it as a portrait.
The model has great eye contact and a looks relaxed and the outfit
and background are well matched.
With the lighting a little more shadow would have given it more
shape, but it still works.
Sexy in a strange way.
The lighting on the model doesn't do much for me.
Great skin tone !
E. (came third for me)
Well done on the lighting, background and outfit, all work well
The model has a nice look in her eyes, but the pose is a little stiff.
Nice skin tone as well.
Another good portrait with good eye contact.
The make-up and hair combination is good and the background good
though I'm not sure how well they go together.
It does makes her stand out.
I wouldn't mind seeing the model looking a little more straight to
camera on this one.
Overall well done.
I think this is a good pose & outfit on a very cool background (color
and shape), but the models tight mouth and the
slight fear in her eyes takes away from the shot.
There are some issues with the shadows on her arm and a bit on her
face as well, though the lighting is in general not bad.
H. (=highest score)
Vargas is back..
Awesome cheeky look & pose from the model and also a great outfit and
The shadow under her nose & chin & chest are a little strong IMO for
the blown skin tone.
Also the left are stands out for being a bit dark.
I'm being picky because it's studio lighting. winkwink
I. (=highest score)
Great shadows both on the model and background give this a beautiful
shape, the shot is well lit.
Though the concept is not new, the way the the shot has been set-up
is well done.
The model is a winner, her pose and outfit are both awesome.
The only negative I can think of here (and I have to try hard) is her
hair and the one ear sticking out.
This is a great environmental portrait, the composition and post are
first rate - I love it !
The only thing I don't like is the slightly sour look on the models
This is cute but doesn't quite work for me.
On a positive note the look in the models eyes is great and she looks
The negatives are that because of the pose of the outfit she looks
like she only has one breast.
The crop is also a little tight.
I'm not sure about the background, I like the long grass, but
something about cement doesn't say 'sexy' to me.
Maybe I'm getting old..lol
