Graham,

I really like the series! This one's my favorite as she comes of somewhat vulnerable. Capetown is a long way away! I hope you also manage to get to Orange blanket people and Zulu festivals and also townships and city life, or perhaps you are too pressed in your shooting schedules.

Asher

It was all natural light except for the first image which also had a Profoto head giving some rim light from the left.

I agree with Asher's choice (#4), as being the best of the bunch too. It looks a more natural pose in contrast with the others, which I find a little awkward and contrived. The lighting is very nice and balanced too.

Also, the angle of her legs providing a triangle shape provides good anchoring and support for the subject in the photograph. Nice one.

I find #3 a bit awkward, especially the position of the shoulder and the right leg. For #3 and #4, I regret the position of the shoes, it looks as if her ankles are painfully torn. #2 is a bit of "deja vu", but good. I would prefer another facial expression on #5. I like #1 very much, the assertive pose is quite risqué and goes very well with the scenery. You can almost tell a story from that picture, one involving a football team, for example... The scenery reminds one of a sports ground. Although, probably the shoes used in #3 or #4 go better with the jeans.
