I have know Ashley since she was 8. Went out and took some portraits for her senior year and here are a couple of my favorites. Always open for C&C

Pretty girl, beautiful eyes. I like the shots, great lighting, but wondering in the second shot I would try a crop from the basket to her face, highlight her face and smile a bit more, a bit less of the surroundings (keeping some of the nice trees and golden light) and legs.

Thank you for the comment. Something along these lines? Great suggestion btw..

They are both lovely shots and you're right that she is a beautiful girl.

I like the brightness of the first shot and think the second shot should maybe be brightened up a little to match.

Often, I like a closer view of subjects, the bike is so unique and the field flowers so nice, I prefer seeing most of the image. For a bit tighter crop, if it were mine, I'd crop a few more inches above the head and a few inches of rubber near the bottom of the wheel rim. It would save most of the field flowers and all of her body including feet.

From a crude screen capture, I brightened the lower half of the image, added a slight vignette, and tried the minor crop suggested, and it seemed to look nice that way, to include her legs and most of the bike.

This is a tough one for me. I like the field, I like the bike and the color (but looks like a tag on it that detracts a bit), love the backdrop and flowers and colors. I just think for some reason the full image, the legs detract a bit, not sure if it is the pose of them (the angles) or if it just unbalances the photo (most the important parts are in the top half of the image making the bottom a bit underweighted) Maybe I have no better option. She is so attractive and her eyes and smile and relaxed look so appealing I like a more close up shot, but if you remove too much of the bike, it makes the pose a bit unusual until you realize she is on a bike. Maybe there is no perfect answer, any crop will gain and lose something, so personal choice at the end of it. Great shot no matter what.

Thanks! Again I love hearing others opinions so thank you for taking your time to critique! The tag..dang good catch! I never saw it.

This is another one I think I like better than the first.

This is from a screen capture, but this is what I meant. Cropped this way.

I like the one you posted afterward too. In the past, I've done some boudoir, but am beginning to think that this style of photography is a better playing field women.
