Have your portfolio critiqued by someone you know to be a good photographer. It helps if the photographer is doing the types of photos that are within your portfolio. For example, if you're a sports photographer, you'd get a better critique from another great sports photographer as opposed to a great wedding photographer. Why? Because while both will be able to tell you in general terms what's good/bad about your photos, the wedding photographer will not know the small details about sports photography which is what you need to know in order to take your photos from good to great.
Keep your portfolio down to 10-15 of your absolute best photos. Don't mix multiple genres in your portfolio. Generally, you want to have all of the photos be of the same type. For example, if you're sports photographer, you wouldn't want a wedding photo in it. If you're a landscape photographer, you wouldn't want a great football shot in your portfolio.
End your portfolio with your strongest images which will leave the viewer on a positive note.
Pay attention to the visual flow from one image to another. Just like how an album will have a mixture of fast and slow songs to make the overall experience go from highs to lows thus making the album more interesting, so it is with a portfolio.
