    Nice images, i am trying to work out the lighting and it looks like it is a flash either side of you...? or a flash and a window...?

    Either way, for this type of "fashion" shoot you are usually better off with the light coming more strongly from one direction.

    If you look at 2 where she is turned slightly you can see the definition of her nose but in 3 it kind of disappears. It is those shadows that you need as a minimum. This stops the image becoming flat...

    They are well exposed though, i would remove the tat from her hand if they are to go on the wall, and also the "bulge" under her arm pit in 3...!

    Also the back if a bit cluttered, but they are relevant to the shot.

    Sorry do not want to sound harsh as they are nice shots, 2 is the winner for me by a long way..!

    The background is a little distracting and multiple reflections of the lights in her eyes but other than that looking good.

    I was gonna put more but along the similar lines of crash just didn't have the balls to do it as I'm only learning portrait stuff with lights at the moment and the 2 comments I made are the bits I always concentrate on so far.

    Start watching Britains/Australias/Americas Next Top Model...

    There are some fit birds in it and the ocasional breast and nakid buttock but lots of pictures and photo shoots, so you can see what they are looking for in a certain style of shoot. High fashion, beauty, catwalk, ad campaign etc...!!

    And did i mention there are fit birds in it...!

    Cheers for that.

    I think one of the issues is my shitty photoshop skills. Here's image No. 3 again with a little less done in photoshop. You can certainly see more definition around her nose etc.

    I prefer the 2nd version of number 3, maybe somthing can be done to remove her orange tinge (gotta love fake tan) but it looks a lot more natural. A reduction of the highlights to calm the blow top a little may help.
