Helen is a friend of mine at work who enjoys having her picture taken. You can see why.

When shooting people I usualy don't do "posed" shots. I much prefer life shooting.

Good soft focus, good composition. You should try to eliminate distractions from the background next time--those envelopes and papers on the desk, as well as the desk top

this is well-done, but i think it would be better with a plain background.

This girl has a lovely face and great eyes, well portrayed.

nice composition and thoughtful cropping - although i\'m not sure the background really benefits the photo here - moving around to a more empty/blank bg could have been nice. interestingly enough, my girlfriend says your subject looks familiar - so i'll have to check back on your locale when the challenge is over.

Just a little more softer. The papers at the right o=are somewhat distracting. A solid background would have been preferable. Cute model.

Green eyes and red hair...Can't say much eles. Nice shot.

Wonderful portrait, nice subtle diffusion, lovely skin tone and red hair

This is a great candid portraiture. These dimensions might be hard to fit a standard frame, but it is worthy of display.

great expression, great soft focus effect. I like how she is leaning on her arms - nice dark sweater with a sublte lined texture. All this works very well. but ACK! those white pieces of paper behind, distracting. this would be so lovely without them - just a solid white or black or some subtle background! 7

distracting papers on right side,model looks natural,I'd like to see more focus on the eyes instead of nose 5 from me!
