Okay, found the original and this is hard to say but I'm not seeing much improvement here. The original is okay, lacks a certain POP factor and the color in this one helps that a bit but this one still remains a bit flat overall. The first one was in focus but this one seems blurred and if you were going for a dreamy state or soft focus, it does not come across to me in that manner. The lighting is very harsh on this one, on board flash? The shadows from the ticket and her chest are noticable. Not sure of the steps you took in post processing but if you want to talk about it after the challenge I would be happy to offer a few suggestions in making this a more IN YOUR FACE type shot. It's a very good improvement over the first in set up and composition. The original, if I had voted would have gotten a 4 or 5 from me this one gets a 6 for effort and improvement. :)

Well done...a bit more work on the lighting would do well though.

The idea might be good but I don't think the photo is. It just looks like someone took a snapshot on New Year's Eve and submitted it. I would at least like to see the face in better focus and sharper.
