Top photo is great. Beautiful lighting and tone. I'd definitely blow off dust from your lens, and perform some spot removal so that your model doesn't appear to be advertising Head & Shoulders shampoo ;-)a

The bottom photo, without seeing EXIF, appears to have been shot at high ISO and way too much noise reduction has been applied. It's otherwise a very nice, intimate composition.

I agree that a bit more pp needs to be done on the 1st photo to remove all of the spots and the hair from her top. Otherwise the shot is well done. The 2nd image seems highly compressed as presented so much of the fine detail is gone.

Overall I like the feel of each!

1) Top pic, lots of white "lint" on the black blouse, also would consider taking the background and running a conservative surface blur to even out the texture.

2) Looks to be a bit overprocessed, almost like a "painting" effect was run on it. That certainly has its uses and can be loved by the client, but I would try to go back to the raw and work through it a bit more. If this is high ISO, some of us can help you with steps on how to manage noise without losing too much detail.

I'm with TeamSpeed in thinking something bad happened to both mages. It looks to me as if they might have been saved with ultra high compression and about zero quality.

Booth photos are great in terms of how people come out on them. But processing is awful on second one and first one has something like dust on black cloth + elsewhere and right hand doesn't looks right.
