Thanks to all for your comment and particularly Anna and Journey. Your comments are pleasing to read. It is not the sun behind but just a light but I left it as is for the effect it created. Thanks again.

Very touching image. The focus and dof used are perfect for the photo. I actually like the way you did it and I can understand the lighting and the colors you used, however not everyone can. I am sure there are those who didn't like the harshness of the golds or the brightness of the reds, but to me the work well.

Personally I wouldn't have changed a thing cause you expressed yourself very well. Nicely done.

This pic is terribly, terribly underrated. I liked it a lot and gave it a high score for this challenge. Actually like how the hair is blowing all over a face and yet there is a lot of visibility of the facial features. Liked how the light (sunlight?) is playing through your hair and particularly how it shines through the background. Also liked the expression on your face. Found this portrait sexy in a quiet, understated way. Great job!

This expresss quite an emotion. I really like the lines of the hair that creates confusion and inhances the face. The colour tone is great as well.

There's a bit too much hair covering your face in this photo and I'm not able to get a good feeling for who you are (ie the hair is hiding your facial expressions). It also has too much red in it for my liking. If the hair had of been swept back, so we could see your mouth and the colour corrected, this would have been a very good shot

I love the 4effect of blowing hair and how "real" you look in the photo - great balance over all

this is very expressive! I like the motion in the hair in contrast to the steady gaze of the eyes.

I really like the framing and the way the hair fills the shot and frames the face. The colors are a problem here though. With some better skin tones (I think it needs some better lighting) this would be an excellent shot.

The tone of the hair highlights blends perfectly with the light showing through from the background. Wish the wispy hairs weren't in the way, though, makes it not frame your face as much as hide it.

The backlit hair, the expression on the gorgeous model, the tones and colors--all add up to a good photo!

I would like this more if it your face was just a tad bit brighter. You get lost in the shadows. But I like the close-up framing and your hand on your forehead is a nice touch.

I like the way your hair is all over the place, good composition...your blue eyes stand out amongst all the yellow, nice...

i can see more of your hair than I can your face. the lighting on your face is a little dark as well. the sharpest focus seems to be on the left side of the photo and your hand. I wish that your face were in focus a bit more. I find the out of focus hair in front of your face a bit distracting. nice to meet you though.

I like this - makes me wonder where you took it to get your hair so wild - not so sure about the orange cast though - 8

I like the way strands of your hair are highlighted from the sun or other light source. Would have liked to see a little light on your face as well. Nice though.
