Part I... I like to see the people eyes.
Part II looks better.

Nice shots - I agree with Pako about the eyes, but I do quite like 2717.

Nice going with portraits and hidden-halves, Daniel. : )

You'll get there with the balancing of the invisible and the visible parts in time. Good thing you have very patient and volunteering models. : ) Just keep shooting and one day you'll find that you'll decide within seconds on what the shot requires to be a little mystical and seductive or maybe innocent with similar shots.

Thanks for sharing,

Yildiz

Part III

All of these four pictures were shot with my 85/2.8 SAM, which I enjoy very much. With 100 ISO.

I like 3410 especially - a real air of mystery. Would it add even more atmosphere if you cropped out the background lit behind her head? All very interesting pictures.

A good concept. The girl and chess set looks best, because she is old enough for playing chess to fit in, as well as looking attractive and having the right pose and expression. I like the glass chess set, and it works much better than a regular set would.

But, I must comment on the shape made by her wrist/hand and arm. This is not a good part of the shot, it looks wrong and it would have been better with the hand shown as a normal shape.

I like the "I'm gonna punch you" shot, but wish you hadn't framed it quite so tightly.

Keep up the good work!
