The focus and selective desaturation works very well here. The focus on the models eyes and her expression help make the shot. Very nicely done. I'm not sure what else I could add to this.

This is indeed very pretty with lovely colors. There is one minor imperfection and that is the modelling of the left eye. This may be an angle or light or post processing. Despite this, it remains quite an original entry for this challenge. 7

Nice portrait. Nice job of emphasizing the color purple yet not screaming out "Selective desat"

Who is she? Why is she sad? What's she thinking? The colors and composition are very nice. Selective desat works for me in this image. 6.

Wow, what a lovely choice of colors. Makes me want to get that lipstick for my girlfriend. The eye color and lip/mask color were carefully chosen to match the feathers. Nice job.

This one reminds me of a great date I had on Mardi Gras one time. The eyes are very strong in this photo yet thoughtful. I really like the mix of color and desaturation as well. This just works for me.

Am I the only one that likes selective desat? Call me a sucker for it. Nicely done here. Don't often see a desat of this color. 7

This is a fun image for me. I love that you used selective desaturation, but I would have left her eyes uncolored... A few hotspots along the nose/collarbone area make it a bit attention grabbing. 6

Simply stunning. Can't add anthing more than that, sorry. 10
