nice series a couple of quick suggestions
1. Number your pictures it is easier for you and us to refer to them.

2. in a lot of them you are shooting a very shallow DOF which is good for seperating the subject from the background. However it seems either your off a bit on the focus point in some of them or your lens is front focusing. ie the third picture at the ground level you can tell two boards in front of her are very sharp yet the one she is on and the one behind her start to blur out. In turn her face is soft.

Same with the next picture your one board out. 6" is a long way out when shooting a very shallow DOF.. I have done this exact same thing seveal times. are you using single point focus? I assume so. Work on the focus or close down a stop and see what it does for you. What f/stop did you shoot at. A bit more exif data would be nice too.

Fantastic Model, very nice smile. Looks like she was having fun and that is great. If you have a model having fun, you will have fun and the shoot will go well.

Very nice set of images, as noted by Canadian Techdiver he has good points. Your model is wonderful and she must have been a blast to work with. Thanks for sharing these images.

Very nice photos, model looked like she was real fun to shoot too. I agree a few of them look soft but other than that they are great! Were these all shot in available light or did you use some fill flash?

I like #1 the best.

For some others, it might be my monitor or something, but it seems that her eyes deserve more focus. But great work anyway!

Great Shots. LOVE the color and saturation! On #3 is her face OOF or is that just my tired eyes? Looks to me like the focus point was the lower right hand side of her dress...?

Look like you are doing fine. The model is having fun and is relax so that is a good start. Nice series of shot with nice natural lighting and exposure. The only thing I would just be careful with is that some of the shots were just soft on the face.

These are very nice. You seemed to have missed focus in the third shot, nothing you can really do to save that.

The third and fourth, also, don't seem to be as vibrant as the others. Were they all the same processing?

Very nice photos. Though #3 looks to be front focused by a good foot or so, and she probably could have lost the shoes in #6.
