In general, the post-processing takes away from the model which is
the exact opposite of what you (and she) want these images to do.

Specifically,

Image 1. Pretty girl, but the processing is off-putting.

Image 2. Watch how her right arm disappears behind her except for
this little hand popping out at her waist? Not flattering.

Image 3. The background in the upper left corner is distracting.
Plus, why is her left arm folded that way? It looks awkward and the
effect of the pose is lost from this angle.

Image 4. Watch out for the triceps on a pose like this. Women hate
having big or flabby upper arms and this pose accentuates hers.

Image 5. Great face, but there's no reason for her stomach to be
showing. It's not as sexy as she probably thought it would look.

Image 6. Not even close, the best one. The least amount of apparent
processing and a decent pose.

Keep shooting, my man. And keep studying what the pros do and why is
what they do works amd why what we do (I'm still learning myself)
doesn't.

I really do appreciate and value your opinion and thats why came here to dpreview before presenting these shots to the model. I know what I did wrong and have corrected the photos. I want to thank everyone that replied to my post and I want to say "I'll Be Back" (Terminator).
