Oh cool portrait, like the backlight. The one dark eye is the only minus point really

Yeah, I liked this one.
And the face looked a bit familiar. Now I know why. :)

No, must have seen her in another photo before I think.

Wow - nice portraiture! (If that's a word!) I love that the face is crisp and sharp from the tip of her nose back to her eyes (many get one and not the other), and then the focus fades away. Very pleasing backlighting.

The only thing that's a bit off is that her left eye is shadowed more than her right, which unbalances her eyes, just a bit.

Still, I like it! 8!

Revised after more voting -> I like it a lot! 9

lovely portrait. nice strong lighting. My opinion though, I feel the actual portrait is so strong, it kinda takes away from the bokeh of the image,.. still, well worth an 8.. well done.

nice portrait, but not my understanding of bokeh. Lights are blown, too
