I used the clarity slider in ACR to add sharpness to it.

No he didn't. She was already in my car when I found him standing in the street outside his house.

I don't really process much. I used the clarity slider in ACR to add detail to the boke, but not much else.

It's the lens. A 309 mm aero-ektar projected onto "ground glass". It makes weird boke.

great colour, great bokeh, and thank goodness she isn't wearing a veil, although her naked upper torso doesn't really do much.

I find appealing the unvarnished "found" model and appropriately earthy bokeh. voted earlier

She might be your model but the other person got the better shot IMO :/ Heavy falloff, all context blurred for the sake of bokeh and not enough facial coverage to read emotion.

The composition is nice. I do like the colors of the background, but the background seems a little too adjusted in PS or whatever program.

The body position, window blown hair, and face say a lot.

Wonderful light. An interesting choice for bokeh. I don't think most male viewers will get past the lady :-)
