Skin looks over processed to me

But I'm more used to shooting old men with skin like a badger's ar$e, so who am I to comment!

When you said "Glamor" the first thought in my head was those horrible Mall "Glamor" shots. I think they look great. If you were to say just portraites I would say the skin is over processed but for trying a "Glamor" (in a great way :D ) I don't think they are over processed at all.

Skin is definitely a little too harshly processed... pare it back about 15-20% and leave a little more definition and then I think you've nailed it (talking the closeups here).

Watch the model vs light position... #1,4,5, and 7 all are underexposed or have hotspots where you don't want them (ie on her chest).

I think #3 is by far the strongest of the set in terms of lighting and composition. You've given her a really flattering definition in her face, and the only thing I can think of for critique would be that there needs to be a little more light in her eyes. Getting a reflector or something below her would help fill the shadows a bit more and bring it to the top-notch level :)

I have to agree with dubaiphil and Plymer, the skin looks quite overprocessed and I noticed in the last shot there's some kind of smudge at the left of her nose... looks weird to me, but I don't know.
Despite this, I liked the shots, I think lighting and composition are quite good, if you just reprocessed them, I'm sure they'd make great photos :)

You opinion may vary - however I like the poses and hair - very retro '50s style.
