It's a nice shot. I didn't vote on this challenge, but I do think the "missed" focus probably distracted some voters.

Focus has a tendency to direct the eyes movements, and in this shot it causes the eye to move across the ear which is not really the subject of the picture. Still a nice candid, but I'd definitely think the focus is responsible for the finishing.

I enjoyed the gentle lighting and gave this one an 8.

I like the soft feeling, the DOF and the general tone of the image.

Lovely tones on this, very poingnant, just lacks a little sharpening.
