I think I'm finally ready to take the plunge. I slapped together a set today and need to weed out a few. Any CC more than appreciated. When they changed the settings on the site, for some reason I keep forgetting to check this board!
I know that there are ladies here who've been through this process and can help with some really specific CC... I'm not one of them! But I do think the set looks great, and wish you good luck! (Not that you will need any luck!)

Thank you, I would so appreciate it! I just want to weed out any that are iffy or questionable I kind of just want to have a clean set and not even think about it and hit submit ha, only taken me two years though.
GREAT SET KRISTEN!!! #10 looks ever so slightly snap-shot-ish to me, so I am not sure I would include that one. And on #20, the stand behind them looks tilted which makes the family look like they are leaning. It may be that the stand was on uneven ground, but I found myself tilting my head while looking at it. I would straighten it with the stand as my reference point but otherwise keep this shot as well.
I love the variety in your shots - you have wonderful black and white conversions, a good mix of head shots and body shots, groups and individuals of a wide range of ages. I think you so are so beyond ready for this.
Thank you GiGi! I fixed #20. Better?
These are the ones I'm thinking of getting rid of, #17, #10 (although I really like that one ), and any with color issues maybe #19? does it matter his shadow is cut off?
20 looks great now! I don't think the cut shadow is an issue on #19. In fact, I would probably try a bit tighter crop, but not so much that you lose the boats in the background - I find that a great supporting accent.
I left comments on your flickr.
Here is my overall CC. You have a lot of centered images, it's not bad but I know they like ROT style pictures. There were a couple I thought looked like snapshots. Also, make sure that if you are including pictures from a session that you have a variety of lighting, most were flat lighting. Good luck!
I am still undecided to apply since I don't really think I'll ever go into business with photography, lol! Oh and my set is taking me 5 years now in the making.
