As models are my thing. I'll post here some examples of my portfolio.
I'm not very experienced in technique and such, but I'm a very motivated person.
I love to shoot girls, but I don't like to retouch them  as hell.
I try to keep my retouch very basic.
Don't work for a magazine, so I don't make them  look like fake plastic dolls.
Hope you'll like it!

Stunning shots Yannick!  Love that first one with her hair flying!

oh my....  :D

i think i did pretty good with this...astro work isn't what i usually do though, just a fun challenge.  I know a few of you do this stuff much more than me, so critique wouldn't be a bad thing.

Beautiful Chuck!

I like the way you got light onto your subjects; I haven't figured out how to get shots like that in sunlightJim....
Jim

Thanks Jim!   It's about compromises....i'd rather "shoot to the right" and slightly overexpose the shot to get more light under the hat...i'm ok with some blown areas if the result is that I get a better face.

Perio....you said you don't have much time, but one area to learn more about is post processing.  There's so much room to improve photos.  And even if you don't nail the shot, if you're good at editing you can save many images, and even turn some average shots into good shots.

I just tweaked your shot a bit to improve it's overall look to my eye

I'd point out that this is a quick edit, and also that i'm no expert at editing.

good luck.

original and then the edit.

Rodeo action yesterday with the 1dx and 70-200 and 300 2.8.

Full sun at high noon so the light was quite harsh and from straight above, but i did the best i could

I'm absolutely drawn to the rider's eyes in that first photo, they're truly captivating. Really great pictures!

Thank you very much for the kinds words AJperk, Dylan, Edward, Click, Eldar, RPT, Bornshooter, and Menace

On a monster road trip this summer, we stopped by Yellowstone and experienced one of the most amazing sunsets I've ever had:

Chase the Light by Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott, on Flickr

Saw the beautiful light and got my wife to throw the ball so I could focus on tracking and placing our little "friend" where I wanted her!

great light and shot Dustin!

Opinions?

I think it's a great photo, and I'm sure the handsome couple is very happy with it! 

The only small critique I have is that the image feels like it's tilted to the right?   Maybe due to the strong slant of the trees and posts on the left.

So I cropped out some of the closest tree on the left and tilted the horizon slightly.  What do you think climber? 

Again, wonderful image and interesting technique!

Original and then my very small edit.

On a slightly different note, this from a local motocross exhibition today; 5D2, 70-200 f/2.8L IS II.  I spent a bunch of time waiting for the batteries for my lights to charge (my fault) and to my redemption/irritation the sun was in exactly the right spot.  This got the lens profile and a very little love in LR5.

Jim

Nice timing Jim...great shot!
