    Hello, this is my first photoshoot with a newly bought lens - sony SEL 50mm f/1.8, which proved to by great. I'm not a totall novice, but any Critique and comments are very appreciated. These photos are not fully proccessed, because I lack of fantasy on what to do with them any ideas and suggestions are gladly appreciated. So thank you in advance for your attention - here they are:

    Nice collection as a whole.

    Only suggestion would have been to have her remove her gloves.

    yeah.. :) but this is post factum :) actually today was 19 (-7) degrees outside, so without gloves would have been very cold, even with gloves was very cold. I agree with you 100% these gloves distracts quite a bit. thanks Davect01

    Some nice portraits here with good composition on some! I would probably up the contrast and clarity on some if it were me ;)
    Did you use a lens hood for these or a filter? Some are subject to flare from the sun...

    Sadly, lens hood was on a lens but it was not in a working position.. my mistake, when I decided to shoot against the sun, I simply forgot to put it on a working position. and only while postprocessing realized, that I had it with me and did not use.
    Will check contrast and clarity again. Thanks for your input Nick.

    No problem. Still pretty good and she should be pleased.

    Did a little experimentation with pp. would be interested to know, which version of the photo looks the most appealing to you.
    thanks.

    #2 has something wrong going on on the background - you can even see it on the top of her head
    From these I personally prefer #3 the most ;)

    +1 B&W seems to work best here IMO
