This is very lovely, I do wish the DOF were slightly less. The background is a tad distracting.

Lots going on in this picture, I find the dresser to be a distraction in my humble opinion and would have given this a 10 without it. Lighting is really, really beautiful! So soft.... Bumping it up to 9

I like the calmnes of the scene (and I'm fascinated by the braid or whatever it's called).

My my...that is some beautiful lighting! Love the hair! While I normally am not a fan of closed eyes on a portrait, this just works. What is she thinking about?

Extra points for the light and elegant hairstyle.

Voted earlier coming back to comment.

All elements come together in this stunning capture. Love the light that illuminates the whole scene. Composition and mood of the piece is lovely too. I get the feel of the early morning light and the breeze that comes through the window. It shows a moment in time where this woman & her pet take a moment to enjoy the view and a quiet hour by the window... Details are fabulous - from the sharp details of the woman's hair braids to the fur on the cat.
