Thanks to my model, Raquel, for the patience. It was a funny session. It was hard to contain the laughs, when trying to make this shots. A long session, but with some images I like a lot.

I feel as though the watch draws more attention than the eyes do. Lighting looks maybe just a touch too harsh to me.

good lighting, though for the title the watch seems a little out of place, as if it was the main focus

Is this a jewelry photo? It has two competing subject. 1. The girls face. 2. the watch.

I love the emotion hiding in the tightness of her face... and behind her arm. This starts at 7.

My eye is drawn to the watch instead of her eyes. I'm not sure the dead space on the right adds anything.

I think there is a bit too much detail to the face. Maybe soften up the face a bit, leaving the eyes sharp. Good exposure otherwise.

This is nice although I feel that the lipstick drags your eye away from her eye.
