I like #1 best of all. It's an attractive woman in a pleasing setting. You might want to clone out the white circle in the background crowd.

As for the others, I don't care for the angle of #2. High jinks shots (#3) generally appeal to the subject and those who know her.

This is a personal observation: car shots strike me as "here's my car." They are of interest to the photographer but to absolutely nobody else. They're worse than the stereotypical "here's my kid" or "here's my pet" shot because sometimes the kids or pets are cute. A car is just a car. In any case, you would present it better without the busy background.

I think you did well. You have a good eye and a good model.
I agree #1 is really good but agree the white spot is distracting and be careful not to crop out too much on the top.
#2 - some overexposure and the green is a bit too much....tone down the BG saturation.
#3 - too much crop (the elbow) and again the blue saturation is overpowering.
#4 - Actually this angle is the best but again there is too much cropping. Might be better to do this black and white or use a mask to blur the background. The exposure is quite good.
Personally, I find copyright/signatures unnecessary and overused esp in low res snapshots.

thank you! signature was messing with it in light room, but these are full res on flickr :P.

I agree 1 is the best.
about 1 are you talking about the white in the trees, or the people on the sidewalk? or both :D?

number 3 had no crop at all :( just me being stupid :P its SOOC, except for white balance, and desaturated the orange/red the building behind her was horribly bright, and of course a few skin touch ups..

Thanks guys! C&C helps makes people better :D

In the first photo the background is brighter than she is. It distracts from your subject, I'm looking more at the leaves than I am at your model. Maybe wash the background colors out a little and/or brighten up your model?
Two strains my eyes but I can't pinpoint why, possibly the green. But overall I like it.
Three is too bright and harsh, seems a little out of focus. I would get rid of the glare on her nose.
Number four, I would try and get rid of that other white car in the background and blur the rest of the background just a tad. I probably wouldn't have cropped it so close.

I also like the first one best. I wouldn't mind seeing a re-take of the second shot, but with portrait orientation instead of landscape, and a more moderate angle... like 45 degrees down instead of almost straight down.
