This is a fantastic shot, but I think you may have over-dodged the eye on the left. Other than that it has great texture and lighting along with a beautiful girl.

This is one of the better portraits I've seen. Very creative DOF and fabulous tones/light.

Very good! I would maybe had liked it better had both eyes been in focus but it's hard to tell. But then again... no. It looks interesting the way it is. I particularly love how the colors are not at all over saturated here.

What I like the most in this picture is the way you captured the expresion in her face. The blur is working for me too.

Just a little more DOF and this would be an excellent image.

Nice use of depth of field here. I like the sepia, too, as it adds a bit of nostalgia.

Nice expression. I like the shallow DoF but I think I'd like both eyes to be sharp. Still an excellent shot. 8

Good lighting & contrast. I'm not sure if I like the soft focus or not......looks like a 1.4 lens! Well done composition. 8
