That's a very nice smile you captured, dear mate,and the subject is so pretty : )

Yet, because you may have focused about theleft eye ofthe subject, andyou shot a bit from sideway, the other parts (except the ones in focus)looksoftdue to the small aperture number.

I was just about to post my comment and Bahadir said basically exactly what I was going to.

You've framed this nicely with good head angle but it is really the focus only on the back eye that takes away from the whole shot. If the front eye was the sharper focus this would help, but nothingclose to having both in focus. Eyes are always key to a portrait and we all love narrow dof, however finding the balance is essential between narrow dof and focus on the eyes.
