Here's a couple of shots of a young cheergirl frined I did a few portfolio shots for a short whiles back.
I really havent had much experience at this tyle of photography, this being my 2nd only dedicated model shoot. Any & All C & C welcomed.
I think you did very well. I like the background.

You have 3 shots and 3 different depths of field...all look great too. Nice color contrast between the model and the background. However the left side of the model on each photo looks slightly washed out. Could be my monitor though but overall I like the composition.

Nice shots! I like the DOF on the third. I would've cropped a bit more off the top for the third pic. Great set though

Well, I think I need to see some more of her pictures to be able to make a proper critique ;).

The brightness of the lingerie works very well with that background IMO.

Thanx for the comments guys.
The actual location for this shoot was an under road walkway tunnel, with light coming in strongly from the RHS (beach end), with a 580EX on an off camera cord stretched out to the left as a fill light.
I did think about cropping down the third shot a bit tighter during postprocessing, but when I cropped it I discovered that I liked the original, with the yellow "halo" behind her head - if only I had spotted it at the time of shooting...
The background in the last two bothers me and I might have stepped her away from it to get a little more blur. However in the third one you expressed a liking for the halo so it is possible to select out the halo and blur the rest of the photo. I also darkend the lighter portions (including her face) slightly using a standard mask.
In my example I have done that but, of course blur is a matter of taste and you may prefer more or less (or none). This is an alternative for your consideration.

My take on this is that the model is great and the color of the lingerie is just terrific. I love the lighting and her poses. If what you are trying to do is show the lingerie and her to the best, the background, although very interesting detracts from the subject matter. If your goal was to take rather wild shots, which I think you have achieved, that's fine. Those same or similar poses, say down on the beach with a simpler background (white sand or the water behind her, or her in the water) would have worked better.
Very pleasing shots.

Beautiful models always make a shoot easier but on the other side technicaly spot on only picture 1 is missing the punch due to the lack of eye contact.

Beautyfull shots Mark,
The light on her face in the first and third images looks a little strong.
