An interesting shot for a jewelry shoot. I'm not sure how to critique this and I usually have something to say :D
I think I'd like to see the jewelry more close up as i can't really see the details.

Hope that helps

Not too keen on this one. The background is distracting for me and the vignette is *way* too hard for me (and I'm guilty of way overdoing vignettes - even I wouldn't have gone that far! ;)

I can't decide whether cutting the models head off with the background works or not - it's nice the roof line is more or less parallel with the shoulders, so you can probably pass it off as a concious framing choice. Also, the grey wall she's sitting on is quite dark and heavy - it's too dominant for me - perhaps lighting it up a little would work better..?

Hard vignettes are part of my "look" (although i agree this one's berserk ;)

This shoot was real spontaneous, the girls took soo long to get ready I had about 30 min of daylight left, and no lights with me - i was expecting a nice sunny shoot.

I think as others have said you need to focus in one what it is your, erm, focusing in on.

If you showed the photo to a stranger they wouldnt realise it was the jewlery that was the focal point if you see what I mean.

Perhaps her left hand resting on her left thigh to show the ring then compose to position the necklace in the top right 1\3 intersection would let you move in closer and have less back ground

Hope this helps
