Hi Mark, Should say Excellent on your work. really nice. tonning are superb!
Following points noticed.

I see something odd looking on Nose on the 5th Image and i think the retouch is little bit over. I feel the same over work on 8th Image as well. specially on forehead on 8th image little bit flatten.

I think you’ve got some great shots here.

Right off the bat, what impressed me was your lighting; the light in every single shot, though different, works so well for each subject and style.

The only thing that really caught my eye, as far as something I’d have done differently, was the fact that a few of the shots have a really heavy vignette; heavy to the point where it’s creating a very distinct oval shape. I might have angled for a much more feathered vignette and probably brought the midpoint even closer to allow you to still have the same level of tones.

Overall, some great work here!

Wow there's a lot here, like a lot, sometimes the skin looks a little too "perfect" for my tastes. Great shots

Yeah Joseph I know, just wanted to post a selection of images that I like. I’ve got a lot more.

I can't critique anything else until you put the whites of their eyes back to normal. If you have to brighten the whites of someone's eyes to make the photo interesting you've already lost the war.

Hmmm interesting concept James. You never enhance a persons eyes ?

Never in post production... it ALWAYS looks fake. The poor girl in #7 must have been in a terrible accident to have both eyes removed and replaced with glass ones without veins.
