Goldwinger,

Thank you for viewing and commenting. I also prefer not so shallow depth of field. The eyes don't isolate from the background so much, I think

Thank you, Gary. The shallow DOF is overrated, I think. I have full respect for those who prefer it, though

Hards80,

Yes, they can be hard. Just a couple of reflections; if you increase hightlight and middle tones and do some selective saturation and if you separate green from yellow; decrease green, the yellow might stand out. Just a thought
