...oh and I liked this one.. couldn't decide on the crop...
Take the third picture. I thought of two options:
1. Get the tip of the trigger finger to the intersection of the top and left 1/3rds lines
2. Get the tip of the trigger finger to the intersection of the left 1/3rd line and the horizontal center line.

Can't decide which one I like better...

It's a tough call. For general web viewing I think. The third is great, but if you're trying to do a billboard, or some other format the first might be good. If you had a bit more room at the top of the frame it might make for a good movie poster type shot. Of course, that's prolly not hard to do in Photoshop since it's a simple background.

True! Top and left - some more black...

What can I say, I am partial to B&W...

Nice photos, but what's with the way you're posing the woman in the 3rd one trentchau? The lighting, and surrounding scene is great, especially with the mannequin torso & arms & legs all over the place, but her arms just look uncomfortable.

Arms?   Ohhh yaaaa, ummm sure.   8)

Well, I was trying to add to the conversation and not going "*drool* how the heck do I get her to pose for me *wipe slobber*"  :P

Lol, I was just buggin ya.  I didn't even notice the arms.  ;) 8)
