Very nice!  Love that first one and the last one is very unusual.  That whole OOF car fills the lower right frame and even the hands are blurred - but her face and eyes are so very sharp....

Nice.  Is that the Distillery District?

All I see in the first two is that unfortunate corporate logo

These all raise the question of whether the portrait is of the woman, the rusty truck or the Puma logo. As a whole; it's a swing and a miss. There is so much in competition with her face. The lack of anything going on with her eyes is a sad failure. Portraits are all about eyes and fleeting expression. The broad, flat light doesn't help.

Emma, you portrait pros are brutal.  I mean brutal.  I have a really good friend in San Antonio who was one of the best portrait artists in Texas for 25 years.  She was always asked to judge portrait work and she would absolutely rip every shot apart that she judged.

You guys are hard....  That is why I'm afraid to take pictures of people.  😁

You got me curious so I just looked at your last 40 posts.  Good Lord Woman … you are tough!  You are ripping apart everybody.

Who are you?  You must be good.

Look … I like it.  Take 5 minutes and look at my Flickr.  Throw a few insults my way.

I occasionally need it to keep me on my toes.

I'm not a portrait pro, but on the rare occasion when I do one, I try hard. There are a lot of factors to doing them well. Regardless of critiques, you shouldn't be afraid. My approach for my work is to constantly learn and improve. I don't think the people who say everything is great actually help anyone.

But I think in this case she is right... I'd say the first image is good but in the others there is too much that distract attention. The only comment I'd disagree with is about the eyes: I do not find them lifeless.

By the by take my comments with a healthy pinch of salt: I am not a portrait photographer (let alone pro) as I prefer full body images for my fashion shoots... I do portraits all the time for the sake of the models and of the stylists

Roby, you are pretty good.  I say you are a portrait guy.

thank you Greg

But I consider myself a non-pro fashion photographer... apart from a couple of beauty shoots that I was coerced into in a friendly way, I only do portraits opportunistically (of models for them and stylists, and of my daughter for me and the rest of the family) ... they mostly just happen to me

When I do portraits I do close in though
