This is my first time trying out a soft focus technique. I used an old dryer sheet to get the effect. I don't anticipate it doing well, but I like the result and don't really care. :)

A cute subjet for the sentimental tone of soft focus. They'd look even cuter propped on a bed with a fluffy pillow, perhaps some flowered wallpaper behind. The anonymous green sheet just doesn't add anything.

I am seeing good soft focus. Subject matter is if'y, unappealing IMO. 6

lighting here is a bit unflattering... subjectively, i don't find interest.

The subject choice is good for a soft focus shot. There is softness but the lack of contrast in the shot is not really helping create much of a mood. The stuffed animals are also a little too close to the back cloth, which makes the background become more in focus and in the shot than just being a solid color in the background. The colors seem slightly muted and overall the image seems a little too light, playing with the brightness/contrast levels probably would have helped some.
