i hope this does well, but i dont know how it will do...

A lensbaby self portrait?? I have a hard enough time shooting a fence with that darn thing. The eyes are dead on. As mentioned below, your cheek got blown out a little. My eyes go directly to the white on the right of the image and then to your cheek.

IMHO, Crop is a bit to tight on the left. looking out of the frame conveys some sadness ( or boredom ) which you intended.

A little too OOF for my liking. But I like the way she's gazing off, like she's daydreaming.

Recognise this young lady, lovely capture, maybe a tad overblown on one side of the face but it does not spoil this. Good luck Sofia, it should do well.
