Nice portrait here.....

Lighting is fantastic, and so is the model. It is an interesting, perhaps slightly contrived pose, but that stare sublime.Very Nice.

gorgeous woman, great capture of the face, but the pose is very strange and uncomfortable looking

Beautiful model. Bokeh makes a nice background. Good lighting. I find her arm a little distracting and think a crop with just more of her face would have been perfect. Still a great portrait.

good use of bokeh ... I don't really care for her pose though ...her arms look strange to me in that position ...

I figure this isnt the intention but this shot says to me "Ouch I just got stung by a bee - wanna see?" But seriously - good clean image and you have the bokeh thin ggoing on but I am not really sure if it adds a whole lot to the image. It doesnt take away from it though so thats a good thing.

she seems uncomfortable, awkward

Very pretty. The lighting is good. Maybe a touch hot on her left arm, but not so much that it is that distracting. I'd probably crop out a considerable amount of the bottom just below her hand. I love an almost square crops anyway. Her eyes and the focus is great. Maybe saturate the green a bit more. Still, a wonderful portrait.

Not what I would consider boken, to much detail in background to me.

The hot girl sure helped your picture! :-)

She's beautiful, I like the look over the shoulder, but I would have cropped away the bottom 1/3 of the photo - I don't think it's in any way flattering.
