Fair observation. f1.8 was making it difficult to fine tune the focus. It was just close enough that i figured it worked in spite of the missed focus on near eye.

She looks like the character "Rue" from the Hunger Games movie and just as endearing. Congrats on Top 10, Mark!

the light is terrific... this is special - the curls, the eyes, but she looks so sad. Love the blue bg. 8

Not sure about the streaky catchlight in the left eye. It makes her look sad. Maybe that's the point. Yes, nice curls though.
