Looking for improvement This is the e-group critique board.

Only post pictures here if you can deal with potentially negative constructive criticism. Anyone is qualified to comment and post feedback, and everyone is encouraged to do so. NB: "Looking for Improvement" is the place to post any pictures you would like advice on improving, no matter how bad you might think they are.

Re: Some of my portraits...

Great picture!
Lots of character in the face, sharp and good isolation from the background.
I would try dropping the blacks - in lightroom - or using the tone curve to increase the contrast slightly.
I'd also try a much closer crop on the face around the headscarf.
Very nice

In the second portrait here, I love the pose and expression, and especially the blues and magenta. Lose the distracting green bag is my suggestion for this one.
