    All beautiful shots.
    I'm not sure why, but I wish both her eyes were in sharp focus in #1. One eye being slightly oof at that angle doesn't usually bother me. I can't help but notice it here though. Maybe it's just because her eyes are so beautiful and my attention is instantly drawn to them?

    I agree with woodsac, definitely beautiful shots. I love her eyes in the first shot. The second shot is probably my favorite though. Thanks for mentioning that she dyed her hair. I wouldn't have even noticed! :)

    Great shots. #1 has a very special atmosphere from the soft light and shallow depth of field.

    thanks!

    it's a combination of a layered diffuse glow and gaussian blur i believe, set to a fairly low opacity. I sharpened only the eyes, which brought them out more than the rest of the face in the finished product. thanks again!
