I agree with everyone else, I'd try again with better lighting and the pictures are much too soft.

Something about the lighting is off and just doesn't fit the pictures. Also, why are you shooting at such small apertures?

Hmm, what would you suggest? Apparently I'm not that seasoned in sunset model shoots. Still in process of learning the flash as well.

Where is the the sun for shots 1 and 3? IMO, these types of shots work best at large apertures. Try f4 and bigger, these will make the subject pop and leave out all the distractions in the background. I actually am just learning sunset portraits too!

BTW, you got some really nice shots on your website.

Sadly Im using the stock 18 to 50mm lens. It only goes to f3.5, so that does lead to some issues when trying to make the background more out of focus. Went out and did a practice shoot (I suppose all shoots are practice in a sense) during sun down, yesterday. Will post pics tomorrow.
