Excellent depth of field and I love the way it creates a diagonal.

very beautiful, almost magical! I love the colors, brown eyes with rose and lilac tones of the skin and makeup - very beautiful. it gives me a feeling of harmony, and there's much more harmony and beauty here to me than in sunsets and skies, quite weird, right? :)

What makes a photography good for me are mainly two things: Composition and honesty. You ace 'em both, here is your 10! Good luck!

Please excuse me if I am wrong, but this very much feels like a "Hanneke".

Hanneke or not, great shot. :)
