Both good pics, C Reed. I like the second one better, though. The half smile, the wild hair and the darkness around her eyes that look right at you... Very good shot.
Submitted for all to critique...

Here are a few of my images. They are a mix of 4x5, rz67, and digital.

My ex, and future wife, flying a kite in Frankenmuth, MI. Taken with a Canon G9. It was cold, but very clear, I had to add a little fill flash to get a good exposure.
Hi Xillion, love the use of color in your second photo, the one with the red hair and blue glass ball.
A few of mine.
My friend Drew in Denton, TX. Mamiya 645 Pro, 80mm f/1.9, Ilford Pan F+ defeloped in Wimberly WD2D+, negative scanned then output as a digital negative, eventually finished as a Palladium print on vellum.
Alexis. Mamiya 645 Pro, 80mm f/1.9. (film/developer info not handy)
Katie. Canon 400D, EF 50mm f/1.4.
Dispose of disposability.
Hey, Fugazi Dave: people like you make me want to throw away my camera. Cut it out!
But seriously, those photos are terrific. Are you a pro? I hope to someday have the time and patience to learn some of those techniques and to develop my abilities.
As for the rest of you in this thread: great work! Portraits are my weak spot, photographically. I can't even seem to get friends and family to "look natural" while I'm shooting. My hat is off to all of you.
I love the smell of Proraso in the morning!
Here's a few of mine from the past few months. Shot on Ilford PanF+ with a Hasselblad 500C/M and 80mm. Scanned and digitally post-produced.
This is Jasmine, she was a complete stranger, I hadn't met her until I asked to shoot her portrait.
I also had to shoot a self-portrait as part of the assignment, so here it is. Not as big a fan of this one, still thought I'd throw it up.
You guys are all awesome. I am just fixing my blog and would show you some of my photos.
Questionable work saftey, no nudity but skinny girl in not much.
Model book devolopment for a fresh face. I really liked this model and can't wait to use her for editorial.
