    I like it but I think it would be better if the leg in the lower part of the photo was either more visible or not at all.

    Ah yes, I didn't really notice that much. Very good point, thanks for pointing that out.
    Fixed that up, does this look better?

    These are quite good indeed for someone trying this for the very first time - LOVE LOVE the sharp eyes; it is what draws you in immediately.

    To improve the shot even more, the lighting seems a bit harsh (in particular the direction of the light) here for this model (esp in shot 1) and the glare on the model's forehead, cheek and nose, to me is a distraction. It reveals a lot of skin imperfections which to my eye should be somewhat retouched in pshop.

    You might want to experiment with this model again (if possible) and use frontal light. Normally frontal light is a bit boring but for 'glamourish' shots it works well for people with less than perfect skin. Light coming from an angle reveals MUCH more skin texture than frontal light.

    Describing the lighting pattern you used would really be helpful for newbies.

    Hope that helps - Marko

    Unfortunately will probably never see her again. She was a model in my course, next week we get a new model. I added a glamor blur to those photos, what do you think?
