You have some nice compositional ideas but you need to work on your focus, except for the last one the girl looks out of focus.

what aperture are you shooting at in these pics? it almost looks like your wide open so the sharpness isnt all the way there. Did you try bumping up your aperture to see if you can keep the bokeh but get some of the sharpness back.

Nice compositions and light.

The first one looks washed out, but you might have wanted that effect.
The depth of field is too thin for the second one in my opinion.
The 3rd one is quite nice, but would be better to have all her reflection in the frame too.
In the 4th one is very nice. My attention is drawn to the pipe on the background on the right hand side, but this is very minor.
The 5th one is very nice, but the depth of field is a little bit too thin - very minor here again.

Thanks for sharing.

Her skin blends in with the background in most of the shots, so I end up looking at her hair or at her green pants. Her poses are great. Did you have any artificial lighting in the shots?

Thanks guys, I used all natural lighting and occasionally a reflector if needed. All taken in the shaded area, I never put my subjects in the direct sunlight unless they really want it.
