It is a good focal length for portraits, but it is very sharp and it is a macro lens. Most people wanting portraits want slightly soft images instead of hard, extremely sharp images that show all the normal flaws we all have.

andre,
the bokeh is great. from what i see and the exif tells is you shot this at f5.6. you'll need to use a higher f-stop for more depth of field,DOF, to get more of the image in focus. when doing macros a high f-stop number usually is best, EXCEPT, when you want to isolate a certain part of the image. DOF is really minimal doing macros..
a tripod or monopod is preferrable but i've done real well without either. i've also done extremely poorly.

great images BTW.
