Last one is nice, but the first one is exceptionally good. I like confrontational portraits, which is how I see #1. It's one of the best portraits I've see for quite a while, and it's certainly the best Lensbaby portrait I've seen at any time. Thanks for posting this terrific image.

P.S. My comment on the other three ... posted alone they'd probably look fine, but sandwiched between the excellent (#5) and the sublime (#1), they seem a little passive!

To bad we can't number our images but, I like the first one because it's simple and well carried out with sharpening unlike the 4th one (left below). Composition is great but focused on the wall behind her.

I like #5. The mood and everything.

I agree with Pro Bono, the first one is amazing!! Very 3D feel to it. Great portrait!

Nice shots.... from a nerdy point of view... the hair in the eyes of the model in 1 & 5 is distracting from otherwise good shots.

I really like #1 and #5, the bokeh is great.

I do enjoy the first one. The blur of the 'Baby really pulls the viewer in to your subject's eyes. Great work.

I agree with the others -- #1 is absolutely striking with the perfect sweet spot on her eyes -- also nicely composed imaged.
