Perhaps you didn't notice that I was referring to the second
photo. If that's your idea of a smile then clearly we do
have different ideas of what looks good.
You might consider not talking down to people you don't know anything about. Maybe then the comments you receive might not be so "weird".
Well the second photo is what I'd considered a classic B&W styled mysterious look.....it's a common pose maybe if you didn;t talk down on people who knew what they were doing you wouldn;t get talked down on.

Holy wash out Batman! I think the washed out effect from the lens flare is a bit much in the first. Just my personal opinion.
I like the B&W conversion in the second shot, but I you lost some detail in her hair.
I'm still trying to wrap my head around the third shot. I love the warm tones, and light, but her pose seems strange. Who reaches up and grabs a tree limb and pulls it down? There's also a limb that looks like it lands right on her head. i would definately clone that limb out.
I "lost" the detail on purpose. I anted to keep the attention to the facial expression not the hair so I raised the black levels and contrast.
Third shot I like and the pose is supposed to look natural (leaning weight on one foot and smiling don't see how its strange, why not reach up and grab a tree limb? Is there a rule saying you can;t do that? I also had her do that because it contrasts well with her shadow if you had an eye for that).
I didn;t post these pictures looking for criticism I only accept criticism from successful highly regarded pros that know what they're talking about/doing for various reasons.....just wanted to share my photos....all the best .
