Great shot. I like the soft glow here.

Beautiful ! However one cruel suggestion please. The left hand seems to be in a bit uncomfortable position.

Feels too over-processed to me. The skin looks kind of creepy in its soft-effect. Nice natural expression though.

Returning for comments.
A lovely model and such beautiful lighting. I would have found a lower branch to hang her hand so as to avoid pullin the eyes away from the eyes. Bumping up on great tonal value.

The backlighting really does a nice job of highlighting.

I like the idea here... especially the backlighting of the hair. Her face seems sharp enough. But her right shoulder is blurred... perhaps too shallow depth of field? It just seems odd because it seems like the trees behind her are more in focus than her shoulder. Another possibility is that her shoulder intruded on the minimum focusing distance of the lens (a real possibility if you used a telephoto/portrait lens). I love those eyes though... perhaps a tighter crop to accent the eyes would be just the fix for this image?

Nice soft focus portrait. The background is very busy and distracts a bit.
Good luck

Seems a little soft on the focus? But that may have been your intention? Great shot.

the softness works really well, but the sharp background is very distracting. 6

lovely soft focus and light - the background is a bit busy
