I like this one. Having such a broad area of the background so heavily out of focus really kicks the focal point forward. It's like the figure's the only "real" thing in a dreamlike scene, and it feels as though your eyes swim before being dragged to the centre.
It'd be nice to see you putting slightly higher res samples up on DA. I know copyright's a concern, but it'd be cool to be able to take a closer look at your stuff.
Aww, class missed out! I like it. It's an interesting choice, going with the muted, washed colors. I feel like your outfit ought to seem vibrant due to its colours, but somehow it doesn't feel entirely wrong that it's not. Your hair is magnificent--really matches the mood set in the rest of the photo
