I want to point out that I did no touch up work to remove blemishes. The only adjustments were to color, contrast and sharpness. No one is perfect and I believe the "flaws" should remain, not that she has many flaws.

As for how this photo will do in the challenge. I feel it is the best portrait I have taken to date, so I have high hopes. That said it is a scantily clad woman, that will hurt it. So ...

Guess = 6.5
Hope = 7.0
Reality = 6.2

Well I am greatly disappointed. I believe this shot is much better than a 5.5. With 19 votes below 5, why are there no comments to that effect? Thanks a lot. In the end I love the photo, so it makes no real difference, but it is still disappointing.
