Here are my 4 entries. Please let me know what you think! :) I would like some suggestions on titles as well, because I suck at that! :o

Ice Queen (Princess)? Two different versions...Which do you like better?

Live Dead Girls (I really don't like this title?? I was thinking of something with Undead or zombie brides? or something)

Ok, number one I love in the portrait and the name Ice Queen fits well has the whole feeling there.

Second one, maybe something like Stardust

Third one, as a gamer I think instantly "Left For Dead" not sure if non-gamers would get it though but to me it looks like they're staring at me so maybe a title that can reflect that they're looking at you as the viewer and you're not the one viewing them... "you better run", ehh an idea haha.

Fourth one - Gaia, Seeds of Life, Heritage.

I might be completely wrong and those all may suck, but hopefully they can be of some help or use to you. ;)

For the Ice Queen, the second one is more striking, but she is broad lit. Doesn't bother me but the judges might not like that. She's got a face that can handle it though.

I am no judge, have no idea of such things...but I agree about the second of the two ice queen shots....I saw the first and thought wow...I scrolled a little bit more and went WOW. It really struck me.

I like the second one too, but it appears purple (unlike the blue of the first one)... IMHO i like the blue of the first one better.
Nice changes to the branches one. I like Zack's title (Gaia) but I don't know if it's depending too much on the judges' knowledge of Greek mythology.
Hollywood Dreams (on this monitor) is looking like it's lacking a lot of separation. She's running off into the mirror, and the blacks are a tad blocked up. Also, I can't see a definitive catchlight in her eyes, but again - small file on old monitor.
The zombie girls, I think you definitely need a title about dead, or zombies, or something along those lines. An "excuse" for ghoul lighting (ok, or explanation)... Also, having a true black border shows that there's no true black in the image. Either bring the bkgd true black in the image, or adjust the border (mat board?) to the same color in the image... hard to explain. Just don't point out that there's no true black there.

Again, not a judge - never claimed to be... Only entered comp for 3 ys. So... take that with a big heaping pile of salt. :)

Oh, keyline on the branches one is WAY too thick. It draws attention away from the subject. Thinner keyline.

I'm certainly not a judge, but of the first two, if your title is to be "royalty" of any sort, the first image fits it better because of the head tilt. The first is a "keep your distance" look, the second is a "come hither" look

Suzy,
Is it too late to make any changes?
