Bro you are trying but as a series there are gross inconsistancies in lighting (even in outdoor light can be controlled), posing and model comfortablity. She is uncmfortable smiling wide, it shows in her expression - never force a model outside this kind of comfort zone picture quality suffers. Her cheong sam does not seem to fit well - in a couple of shoots the top distorts making her look strange. Some photos are a little on the soft side and more so they would be OF. Exposure is painful in some, with face underexposed and carrying some tint color. I know this is not the response you are looking but learning to see the flaws in your own work is the hard thing to do.

She's just an old aquaintance since the 1990s and not a model by profession so the the expectation that she can posed as a 'pro' giving the desired 'smile' is too much to ask for. She has a flaw as pointed out earlier perhaps that's why she was quite hesitant to give an open smile but encouragement was given and not 'forced'.
As for lighting and OF points is subjective but of course with modern PP techniques they can be arrested. I always reiterate that am still an infant on PP so I dabble less in it. I shoot as best as I can.

Anyway thanks for dropping by though.
