Cropped, contrast, brightness, saturation and Neat Image adjustments. The soft focus and somewhat washed out appearance are intentional to accentuate the eyes. She truely doesn't miss a thing those eyes see and remember everything.

Really nice. I like the way you chose to crop and zoom in on her eyes. Very well done.

Beautiful eyes. This on one of those photos that would look stunning desaturated with just the color brought back to her eyes.

The close-up is nice, but the eyes at least need to be sharper. The rest of the face isn't quite as important, but I like to see some detail. The only textures here seem to be compression artifacts. Overuse of the trial version of NeatImage perhaps?

Gorgeous subject and priceless gaze with beautiful color but I think the eyes should be lighter. Also, it looks as though you may have used a noise reduction program as there is very little detail in the skin. Still scoring this highly. Very well done, despite the minor flaws. 9

There's something faintly off-putting about the greenish-blue tint to the skin color of the upper face

Just about fell over when I saw this for the first time, and every time since. I can't even begin to describe how beautiful this is, and I am not one to gravitate to portraits - child or adult. And those eyes!

Pretty nice. A little bit blurry, but not toooo bad. The eyes and lips are really pretty. Oh, and that's a tasteful border. :)
