Very good dof on this portrait Mincho,would be nice to soften the picture a little though and maybe if the model looked into the lens it would have more impact, the colors are very good too and the sharpnes isn't 100%, ...will make a ws for the softnes and the sharpening..

I agree with Leon regarding the eyes. Definitely would have had more impact if she were looking into the lens. A little wider aperture would have been better, but not critical. I think a little sharper would have been better as well. I think Leons workshop is excellent.

All technicalities excused - the lady has a charming smile and a sparkling pair of eyes. Kudos for capturing them at the right moment. Though Leon surely has enhanced them well ;-)

Wonderful portrait, Mincho! I like the expression on the face that was caught - pleasant, lovely, intriguing...

i like this one, more then the previous. her smile, the fact that her eyes have darted off to one side, and the very vibrant colours.

A lovely portrait of a very attractive model.
Beautiful colours and a backgroud that's not distracting, but rather livens up the shot.
I'm not at all concerned that she's not looking into the lens, as there are many portraits where this is so, and I find the change refreshing.
If this was slightly sharpened -- perhaps just the eyes, or the main facial features -- I think I would prefer it to the workshop version, as I personally like to see more skin texture, rather than a smoothed over effect.
This original version is still excellent, though.

If you look at the spontaniety and beauty of her smile, and delicate colour of skin tones, then you should'nt have to be bothered by the direction of her eyes.
