For me, the photographic image, is a subjective reality revealed by the inner eye of the individual.

She uses cool colors to show social sphere and warm colors to represent individual self.

The third photo, has some beautiful colors. The reds and yellow work well with the blue jeans and the brown in the shirt is subtle and goes with the color of the seat. I think that the framing choice is interesting only revealing portions of the leg, one arm and both hands. The placement of her hands adds a sense of sexual tease.
The fourth photo shows the the awkwardness of being an adolescent. The subjects head is slightly down and shoulders are rounded forward giving the sense of sheltering or being uncomfortable in your skin. The red hair and pale skin are nice compliments to the rocks in the background. the unevenness and sharp edges of the rocks mimic the structure of the subjects shoulder blades and spine. The freckles add a similar texture as the rocks. Because of the similarities, I believe that the background is a great choice for this subject.
