Warm colours work well, she has a slightly startled expression though.

Technically it's fine, but she looks a bit scared and her arm positions look like she's been pinned down - this ties in with the startled expression!

The composition works well for the shapes she's creating, but for me, the expression kills it.

Thanks for the feed back, she did struggle a little with expression, but generally did very well for her first shoot, we have another shoot coming up and hopefully her confidence will be better.

Mo,
The shot is very good and the "pose" is what you can expect from a young, first time , model
The lighting and background help the shot.

Nice lighting Mo,good eye contact too,she looks a little 'static' but that will possibly be improved next time Mo,as her nerves seem to be jangling a little on this one.Anyway I'm no expert in this field !

I like this the best of the ones you've posted Mo, I don't mind the expression but perhaps if she had her head turned a _little_ more towards the lens, maybe that would look better? Hindsight is a wonderful thing with glamour work...LOL
You're really getting to grips with some excellent work in this fieldSmile

Read all the comments as a study in what is expected in the model and the pic. (I haven't a clue myself.) Looks fine, would love to try this someday.
