Great focus on the hair, but I'd like to see it more on the front eye. Good composition and expression.

I like tight closeups, but here, her hair is all over the place and you can't see the puils of her eyes, giving her a zombie-like expression. I'm sure she is very attractive, it just doesn't come across in this shot.

I love that the focus is on the hair and not the eyes, but this still definitely counts as a portrait for me. It's something different, but it shows you what a portrait is supposed to show.

Nice portrait. For me the bright area on the left-bottom is a bit disturbing, it distracts attention form the face.

This is a nice shot. Unfortunately her hair is in focus but her face is not. I'm not if this was your intent but, to my eye, it's distracting. I find myself really wanting her face to be in focus.

I like the tight crop on this.

I like the idea very much, I just wish the tones were a bit less muted, could use some curves/contrast work :)

Good use of light. I don't care of the DOF, the crop, or the fact that her hair is in her face like that. Isn't part of the point of a portrait to see the person?
