Well done! If something I would have framed so that the legs of the girl in the second picture would be cut by her knees. Not that I dislike them :roll: but the background/sidewalk gets too sharp and distracting. (Except that I would not, because I would be concentrating on something else. I only realize that kind of things on my computer). Could it be that you are tall and therefore framed the picture from your "usual” point of view?

Note: (Sure, don't crop by the knees. I suppose my English is not precise enough yet... I mean which difference is there between cropping “on”, “at” or “by”? )

Don't crop by the knees, never crop on a joint, that being said you did crop on her ankles; I would prefer a wider crop. The sidewalk isn't distracting because the main focus is her face and its nice and shallow behind her head.

You have some great poses and facial expressions here.

I would say pull back a little bit on these full body shots. The first image might be a tad bit over exposed, there isn't very much detail on the white highlights on her dress.

You have a pole coming out of her head on the second picture. And its hard to tell at this size but she doesn't look sharp, how was the focus/camera shake? Or is that sloppy retouching?
