Hello from the Critique Club,

First, let me thank you for the details you provided in the Photographer's Comment section. This was a big help on what to discuss in this critique. The bokeh in this image is very nice and enhances the main subject very well. So why didn't this score better? Although you used USM twice in post processing, the image still lacks sharpness. You may want to recheck your USM settings and try reducing the radius and increasing the strength. I also found the parts of the image touching the left and top borders of the image less than desirable. This is a minor nitpick but still, it pulled my eye's away from the main part of the image.

Feel free to PM me if you have any questions regarding this critique.

Edit: Congratulations on your new Personal Best.

Excellent image. Good use of bokeh and the purples in the background truly enhance the image. 10.
