This was shot with a white veil in front of the camera to make it soft. It was plenty soft at full resolution but lost some of its softness when downsized to 640px, so I added a little Gaussian blur.

This is my favorite for this challenge. The soft pink color is lovely and the lines of the dress frame her face nicely.

Very nice. I just wonder if you could have brightened up the dark area at the top left. Good subject and composition and just the right amount of softness.

Such a cutie. The softness works well here. Great light.

Great lighting of the model, nice positioning of the arms, and I like how the lighting falls off quickly behind her. Excellent framing. Only thing i would watchout for is the lighting on the cheek on the right side. Overall a very beautiful shot.
