The one in the middle. Nice hair!

I think the second one is strongest. Even light over subject's face with contrast in the right places. Also like lighting in the first one but subject's expression seems more natural in the second. Third has a lot of depth and good skin tones but there seems to be an uneven "beam" running down the middle of subject's face. Solid work, thanks for sharing.

Just found your blog couple of weeks ago. I love guns and photography. Thanks for some great reading!

Middle. The lighting on her right side is best in that one.

They're all nice, and LD is certainly a striking subject, but if I had to pick, I'd say the first one.

Number one is definitely best. Excellent light on both one and two. The slightly askance look of number one shows more personality.

Nice work. You have an AMAZINGLY patient model. Especially at that age.

The middle one is the best. You need to pay attention to details.

In the first photo the glasses frames cut across the eye (a big no-no)

In the last photo the color temperatures of your lighting are different on both sides of her face. Nearly impossible to correct in processing other than changing the photo to black and white. Also the bright background to the left of her face is distracting from her face.

If you're going to post all of this photography stuff, can you at least put some guns in the pictures? :-)

Not an expert but I like the third; there is a warmth to her face.

Clearly I'm not a professional. I liked the first one and the third for the ... I don't know... impish quality. And I liked the angles of the head and face better in those, too.

Ring my phone sometime, been too long. At our age either one of us could croak at any time.

Out of the three, I like the middle one the least. There's just something about it that doesn't say "great" shot to me. Something about the colors, at least how they appear on my screen.

I like the third one best.
