Generally I like the set. My observations, as a relative newcomer would be
1. crop off all the grass in front of the picture - too distracting and adds nothing
2. Like the location but think that a bit more lighting on the left would be better
3. doesn't quite do it for me and I think that it is because your wife and the hut fill the frame to the same height. I think that she should be higher(nearer) and the hut should be lower (further away)
4. Really like it but wonder if it would be even better with some of left hand side cropped away?
5. Like the composition but again crop some of the top f the image away and maybe some pp on the skin tones would enhance it
6. Again a lovely image but imho would be improved by cropping away the lower part of the image to lose her right hand and also if only the bit o fern was behind her left arm rather than in front of it.
Summary - lovely set but a bit of cropping would make them even better. - Remember, just my humble opinion. and finally, great model!

Thank you, both for your comments. Plumtreelad, great to hear what others think of the photos. My eye and everyone else's see the world so differently and it's great to look thru yours. Cheers. The colrs on my iPad look dramatically different than those on my computer. Here more muted, but on my calibrated home computer the greens were rich as were the yellows/warmth of the shots. Any feedback as to what you're seeing?

Yes, I would describe them as muted but not anything near "washed out" (my words not yours)! However, I quite like the colours as they are. I want to stress that I do like the images. I am just a bit of a fan of cropping and that has influenced my take on your images.

I wouldn't call it muted, I would call the colors perfect for this series.

Fall colors? All I see in these is green leaves.

#3 is my favorite, but yes, it might be better if your wife was closer. Did you happen to do #1 in Landscape mode as well? I'm more drawn to landscape mode for that pose.

This past weekend I shot Steam trains in portrait and landscape mode. As I edited, I decided to force myself to use square in honor of the old sq format cameras of years gone by. I still have a Mamyia C-33 in the closet. Cropping is on my mind too.
