Waiting for the spring to come
Lens: Various Camera: K5IIs Photo Location: Vilnius 

Less words, more pictures!

K5IIs + Sigma 35mm Art / 70mm Ltd / DFA 100mm. I ussualy post-process for the film look, but this time tried a different approach.

As always, constructive critique and honest opinions are more than welcome!

These are fantastic! I love the look you've achieved. You can almost feel the textures through the screen!

1- I don't quite get the covert viewpoint.
2- A little too much railing and not enough of the model.
3- I like the scarf, but the background is a little too distracting. Her right arm seems overexposed to where it nearly blends in with the white sky (on my ipad anyway).
4- She's too small in the frame.
5- I like this one a lot, even if that one branch is slightly distracting. A nice viewpoint. Her hair is slightly messy, but she looks natural and happy.
6- A nice portrait. I may have cropped a slight bit off the left side.
7- To me, this blob in the foreground completely ruins the shot.
8- This pose looks unnatural, like a snapshot taken at the wrong moment of her coming up the stairs.
9- Very nice and arguably the best shot here. Great colors of the scarf and the rich wood color make this a nice capture.

K-9 big thanks for taking your time and writing a critique!

I admit that I have to agree with 90% of the things you said.

It was helpful, thanks again

I like the picture number 2... the others seem to have too much contrast.
