I have a shot where I used the diffuse glow filter on the model...bad idea for this site, lol. the girl LOVED the shot and I ended up at like 647 out of 705, lol. Glow bad on here, lol, at least my use of it...I like this shot a lot!! but I like the soft focus feel...so...8 in my rating system. Personally I love the look of the eyes!!! Very dreamy...

a very strong picture. I wish you had left more details of her skin. For me this photo sends many conflicting messages. crisp eyes, overly soft skin with no details, hair is partially sharp and clear, other parts are blurry and soft, soft lips

Nice. I feel that the face is just a little to soft. Good job!

To soft eyes. Lack of focus on her eyes.

There's a dreamy softening on the face which is gorgeous and the crop, pose, hair and scarf are great. I just can't quite see the two together - the face with softer hair and high key background or less softening on the face to go with the textures in the hair, scarf and background?

It would be nice to see alot more sharpness in her face, it looks a bit overprocessed in contrast with the naturalness of her hair

the blown highlights in her hair and loss of detail in the dark lower right hurt this one ... I also don't care for the fact that her hair and shawl seem to be far sharper than her face ... I think this would have been stronger if it were either all soft or all sharp ...

I guess you've gone for a soft focus or softened during post processing, i think this would have been stunning if the eyes were sharp. Still a good portrait anyway

This is captivating. The soft glow of her skin works very well.
