This image was overlooked by the voters and deserved a far better score than it received. It has a wonderful vintage feel to it, the desaturation was well done, and I love the use of the muted colors -- looks like a hand tinted B&W shot from the 1950s.

I gave you the 9. I see this was your first entry ... I hope you don't get too discouraged by the score and we get to see more of your work around here in the future.

I think the crop could have been stronger if you'd shown more of the face. There isn't much interest in the dark sweater.

Too bad it's so unsharp

This reminds me of Roy Lichtenstein's work. Good expression on the face.

Don't really care for the crop of this, and the desat is imperfect, especially around the eyes and the hair on the right.

I wish it had better focus...

Brown works, but I think soft blue eyes would have been more complimentary to your soft blonde and gentle pink lip colors.
