compared to the mono this version for me is far superior and better processed. It has a lovely natural feel in both content and lighting. Maybe the composition could've been improved slightly.

No doubt you will likely receive the usual anal composition comments regarding the background lines "sticking out of her head" but for me the DOF is shallow enough to make this a non issue, however there are many on here who just like to state what they think is the obvious rather than looking at the shot as a whole.

I like it, very nice indeed

Everything that Dave said. This is a lovely image, regardless. Nice sharp eyes, lovely smooth skin, beautifully lit....its really very nice. But Dave has a point...some will say things about the lines out of the head, the slightly off third/centre composition etc etc....well, its minor stuff and unless this is going into editorial work, magazines etc, its not so relevant. The DOF does indeed make this work to show it out, so I wouldn't worry at all with it. I guess its something to look out for next time with this kind of shot, but this...I would be very happy with....

Thank you for taking the time to provide me with such detailed feedback. It is much appreciated. I believe that you are correct with the composition and will work on that in future shoots.
