Havent done many portraits so this was a task for me, but im pretty happy with the results and hope the client will be also.
Just wanted to see what some of you have to say and see how i did.
Here are some of my favorites.

1 - Amazing. Focus was spot on to catch that glitter. My favorite of the bunch by far.
2 - I would brighten things a bit and enhance the eyes a bit to make them pop.
3 - Maybe crop some off the top and just a tiny bit from the left side.
4 - I would actually crop to place her torso (*gasp*) dead center...I know, that's blasphemy. Maybe bump up the contrast slightly as well.

Overall, I second Mannetti and add the following thoughts:
#1 is great, congratulations!
2: I'd do some work on her skin -- the shot takes our focus so strongly to such a limited area and it's a bit distracting. I'm not saying baby-butt smooth, but even out tone and smooth out the blemishes just a bit.
3: That's where I'd blaspheme and put her dead center. :lol:
4: You've got a dragon topiary. If it's going to be in the shot, I'd be more conscientious about how it fits with the composition. It's so grandiose that pretty much no matter what you do, it is going to pull focus from your subject and in this shot it feels like it's fighting with your subject for attention, instead of them sharing it.

Thanks for the input! I really appreciate. They go to the client tomorrow so I'm hoping they enjoy them.
