seems a little out of focus

I dont care for the photographers shadow. If possible, I would have turned the scene to where the sun was 45 degree instead of almost directly behind to eliminate that shadow.

This is a snapshot, which unfortunately isn't the best kind of photo. We can also see the photographer's shadow. Try again in another challenge.

I don't think this photo will do very well in this challenge. But if points were given for telling a story, and not technical qualities, you would have such a great score.

I love her smile. It inspires me.

I like the light on the ladies face but this doesn't look like a soft focus image to me. I can see the use of depth of field to slightly 'blur' the plane but the lady, to me, although maybe not completely in focus is definitely not 'soft' (MHO)

the shadow across her arm/chest is distracting

Darling shot and DOF with a wonderful smile, but it's not really enhanced by soft focus. (In my humble opinion)

The shadow on your model is a bit distracting.

Hate to say this, but this looks like a soft focus snapshot...

I am very partial to airplane shots and 172s. Next time try to set up the shot so that your shadow isn't in it (or at least not on the subject).

this shot is too blurry...could be sharper...Just Kidding!!

Looks very much like a snapshot
