I'm not a judge, but I like them. I find my eye going back to the shoes on the fourth image. I think it is because that is the most difference in color of shot and the use of the wide angle exaggerates the size of the them. So, if you change the make the title to explain that, I think you will do better scoring-wise. The only other thing is the position of her right hand.

The others have a good color and I like the presentation for them. The cake picture is cute, but the shadow looks like it might have a magenta color-cast to it.

First one: enhance the catchlights. they seem to be barely there, making her eyes look little dead.

Second one: love this. Go with It's My Party.

Third one: A nice client image, but probably the one I would leave out. This one or 5. I find the main to be a bit low since she is leaning away from it, but her clothes are in key and there is nice color harmony.

Fourth one: Love this. I'd call it "Fifteen". Anyone who has had a 15 year old girl will know exactly what it meant. lol.

Fifth one: Another cute client image. Issues with it are that she is broad lit and her clothing is out of key, but the expression is cute.

I think 2 and 4 are your strongest images.

Thanks for taking the time to look them over. I absolutely agree I would need a great title for the one with the shoes, because it is all about the shoes, kinda by design. The girl is a converse lover and found converse in her three favorite colors.

1- catch lights need help, bring them down in the eye a bit, think of the eye as a clock and get them into aprox 10-10:30 area. Too hard to tell on the small file but might be a cut out look to the top of her hair.

2- Cute image

3- Nice image, feels like an above average image to me.

4- I understand what Mark is saying about the 15 year old. I'm not sure it is a strong image though. Issues that I see are it is a bit of up the skirt look. She is alittle too square on to the camera, usually a wide angle would also make her look long legged because of using them an angle. Here we have the shins looking larger in scale but little to no upper leg. Expression doesn't seem to add to the story.

5- Nice image and again feels like an above average image. Has a lot of character in the expression and the hair. Yes it is broad light but feels acceptable in this situation. Yes I would like to have her outfit darker to make it stronger.

I think I would place them in this order, 2,1,(switched if the catch lights are done well and there is no issue at the top of her hair) 5, and then a toss up between 3 and 4...
In the end you need to enter what you like the best because if you don't you will always feel like you shoulda changed it.
