No its not that bad but I wouldn't call it glamour. I kind of like the PP work also.
The one thing I don't really care for is the way she has her neck/head cocked. Maybe she's trying a little too hard. Posing isn't as easy as some folks think.

Keep at it!

its just not a flatering pose. umm the closest perspective is her crouch and that is seldom a good thing.

nice pp though

Hahaha I was wondering why I was thinking of a Levi's or a Gucci ad when I did it. Now I see.
Hmm....both of you didnt like the pose? I thought it was natural enough, I have to admit, I need to study more on poses. Its also difficult to give instruction for posing. First, I need to learn what is a good pose. When i do know, I then need to learn how to instruct the model without making it seem I am criticizing their natural poses (which could be unflattering).
Oh well, back to the drawing board

I'm going to go against the grain on this one...because I really like it.

I like the PP work, but I think a grittier/dirtier/yellower/slightly overexposed/hot sweaty look would work really well - I'd even go as far as doing a touch of a negative vignette (slight). I think that this would speak better to the pose (which I quite like actually).

I hope this helps.

ah...cool idea. I will work on the dirty gritty thing - but not sure what you mean by negative vignetting ?

Sorry, I'm unsure what it's called, but vignetting makes the edges go dark. By negative vignette make the edges move closer to white.

Well.....um..cant figure out that vignetting thing, but check this out. Are these any better? or is this series just a lost cause

i think there is some vintaging on the original already... I don't like the newer treatments... but the pp is nice... I like your watermark too...

I went out with my wife as a model tonight... never had so much trouble asking someone to do something... directing is tough... makes a good model so much better when they come along...

Thanks
I am still miss and hit with the pp, i guess it will just take time I am just not very certain what looks good and what isnt. And then posing is always a headache
