The portrait is beautiful. Nice skin tones, good b/w, beautiful little girl, intense expression; personally I would have allowed a little more space below her face. The bokeh however does not seem IMHO to enhance this portrait, I find it a bit distracting; however it's 8 for me.

Portraiture seemed to be the going strategy for top spots this Bokeh round. With this one its not the portrait so much, which is amazing, but its the bokeh that is lacking that certain pizazz. I still have this ranked really high in the crowd, Top 10, I only wanted to mention the bokeh in a lame attempt to be helpful. LOL. GL.

Beautiful portrait. The purple/blue tones seem a bit odd but the detail on the girl is fantastic. From a bokeh POV the background doesnt stand out as anything spectacular or really adding to the image but it sure doesnt take away from it either.

Stunning light. Not sure if I'm crazy about the blue tinge of the image, but no points deducted for it. Probably the best image I've seen so far. I like that you chose to do a portrait and not flowers or butterflies. The catch lights in her eyes are terrific. Very good!!
