An attempt to make a bad photo look nice.. It was taken with a bad camera, in low light, with a built in flash which made corners dark and her forehead and nose white.. I think I achieved what I was aiming for, but any advice is appreciated!

Why was it bad in the first place?
looks good to me, although I would go for a more darker background, but that's just my personal choice.

Very good portrait taken from an unusual angle!

I do wish someone would pose for me to try out portrait shots. Most of my friends and family run away when they see me with the camera!!

good portrait from an interesting angle, although I am not a fan of the final skin tones.

Dont see much wrong with this. Quirky pose and great eye contact.Attractive model.Although I do agree that the background could be darker

It has an old time look to it so that is fine. Sometime you have to go with it and not try to make it looks state of the art, if you know what I mean. I saw some guy selling expensive prints taken with a low quality Holga camera. They looked 100 years old, but so what?
