I don't know how a picture of a blonde girl on a sunny day ended up so gothic, but here it is. Indecisive to the end...I just hope it won't do too badly.

a very playful shot...the shadows are wonderfully arranged, and the use of black and white effectively supports the mood...

Sharper focus across the entire face would have improved this a lot, I think. Still nice.

This is really creative with the ivy leaves. Its got a good moody or attitude here, the only thing that perhaps could help really make this shot hot is maybe more focus with less grain. Although I still like it and get a lot of shots of my own with the grain sometimes thinking that it makes a image not so flat depending on a subject. ;)

Very cool. Use of the shadows here definitely help this image to stand out and be noticed. Nice job.

Pretty cool portrait. I like it.

I like what you're trying to do. Keep working at it, though...go for greater contrast and shallower shadows on the face.
