Photo Critique Please

Hello. I have only been into cosplay photography for about a year and a half, and this year's Katsucon was my first time doing private photo shoots. One of the photos that I would like critique on is this one. Thank you very much for your time.

Looks like this shot was made with the camera pointing diagonally upwards. The problem with this position (I made the same mistake too) is that it sometimes exaggerates things - and in this case, its the nose. To fix this, her head should have been tilting down a bit.

I can't help but think that the composition would have looked better if the shot was done in portrait mode. Positions like this manipulate the leg and it'd be nice to see her entire body.

Try to avoid those camera shots where the cosplayer is looking down at a camera. If its at a downward angle, maybe the eyes can be looking elsewhere or her face can be tilted down a bit.

I would agree with some of the downward angle comments Brea made. Its really predominant on the Female!Thor photo, if her arms were a bit over to one side you could see down her shirt and thats not cool/not flattering.

I commend you on trying the unique angle, and I like the composition of photo 2599. I feel like some of your photos could be lightened up either during shooting or in post process because sometimes detail is lost in them (looking at you photo 610 + 525), also indoors you have some color casts going on, another thing you could try to correct in PS or by shooting in daylight or adjusting White Balance.
Current Cosplays:
Zero (Drakengard 3)
Kiss-Shot Acerola Orion Heart Under Blade (Kizumonogatari)
Sakura Saber (Fate/Koha-Ace)

Next Con.
