Don't really even need to say anything...

Nice! Is the slightly soft focus real-time or applied afterward? The hair seems very distinct, but there's a bit of softness or gauziness to the whole thing.

It's almost like you're a professional or something.

Thanks Steve...

Photoshop mucho!
I softened her skin, whitened her eyes a bit to make em pop, desaturated the color by about 80% then boosted the reds to give the brown sepia effect. I then sharpened her pupils to accent the reflection in her eye.
There isn't anything commercial that hasn't been tweaked in some form or another. Pro?....seriously working on it.

I see that now - the distinct difference between the sharp strands of hair and the sot focus on the lips.

I could see you going pro. You got the chops. Don't know what the market is, but you have the skill and determination to make a go of it.

Having a great subject doesn't hurt, of course.
