Selective desat is an over-used technique, I feel, but you've used it here to really good effect and not made it overpowering at all.

Great shot, love the processing. These are always fun and not as easy as one would think to pull off. You did a great job. I might have cropped a tiny bit more from the right side but that is just me.

Oh wow, this is great! I've been trying to achieve that effect that you did with your eyes and the pajamas and I can't get it. (I'm horrible at editing!) I like the lighting on your face too.

This is fantastic, I enjoy so much white-space here, and your eyes really tell a story. Fantastic, the image for me works really well.

Love the catchlights and the way the light fades away. Nice shot.

Nice, the angle works really well. My instinct might have been to add more depth to your face by lighting one side more, or going for the "beauty dish" kind of light that also fully lights the face but is I believe directed more from above (small shadow under nose).

I have to agree with all that has been said especially about the POV. Good stuff! :-)
