On a site where everybody strives for pin-sharpness, it's refreshing to see soft focus like this. Almost National Geographic. 8

I don't get the title but I like the shot. Nice expression on her face. The downcast eyes would normally be a turnoff, but they allow us to see her great makeup better.

Good detail and lighting. Love the colors to.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great makeup detail and well framed. My only nit pick is the center ornaments on the forehead are a little blown out but nice shot all the same.

Brilliant
  Photographer found comment helpful.

She is a really neat subject, but the processing bothers me. It gives the photo a quality of forced etherealness when her in her raw, natural state would probably be much more moving and beautiful.
