These are certainly some of the best images I've seen of yours.
I really like the head shot.
Very photogenic girl.

She is a very pretty girl however, #2 and #3 to me are not very flattering. They are lovely shots but with a subject like this you want to show a bit of youth. You have managed to capture the aging details in her face. Try portaiture and the clone stamp for some skin smoothing in #2. It looks like you may have done that in 3 but the contrast is a bit harsh IMO. Great exposures and compositions though!

4 I really think is the best, and all are good.

I think I remember you saying she had become a fitness model. Looks it.

Thanks very much to each of you, and it is gratifying to hear that I am improving.

James504, I see what you are saying. Will do a bit more cloning here and there. I just didn't want to push it too far and overprocess. I am limited to DPP and Photobucket editing stuff.

S. Horton, she is a wanna-be model, as I am a wanna-be photog, but she is a figure competitor.

Thanks again, everyone. I am encouraged...

In all of these her face/eyes are soft and the focus has fallen on other areas like the hair or the dress. Keep shooting.

Thanks for the CC, Jeni. I have been having lots of focus issues, for whatever reason. Camera was set on AF with center point focus only for this set. I admit that on this setting, I find myself wondering where to place that center point, especially on full body shots, etc.

Move the center point to her eyes, lock focus and recompose. You can also move the focus point to somewhere off the center and place it over her eyes. Whatever you do, just put the focus on her eyes.

So I can understand, what do you mean by "recompose"? What I am not understanding, is how to focus on the eyes when they are not at the center of the shot, ie in a full body shot.

Thanks for your patience!

When you press the shutter button halfway, the camera will auto-focus (well this is the default setting). So what you do is put the focus point on her eyes and press the shutter halfway. You'll see a red focus box. At this moment, while keeping the shutter button pressed halfway, rearrange (i.e. recompose) your shot the way you want and fully depress the shutter button. The camera will remember that the eyes were in focus and will record the image accordingly.

A couple of things here: If someone was messing around with your camera, your focus point might not be the center point on the viewfinder. Refer to your camera manual to find out how you check this. The other issue is that you can move the focus point from the center to another section of the viewfinder. When you do this, you don't necessarily need to recompose. You simply frame the shot the way you want and move the focus point to go over you intended location (e.g. eyes).

If you're struggling with focus on a head shot it suggests your selected aperture has too shallow depth of field. Focus-recompose as suggested my get the her eyes in focus but at the expense of nose/chin. Fine if that was what you were aiming for and vice versa.

If you do the focus-recompose thing be sure to move yourself rather than just turning with the camera until focus point falls on her eyes else when you turn back to shoot the focus will shift leading to more confusion.
