Nice study.
IMHO, would have been better with greater DoF. My eye is immediately drawn to the OoF lips and chin. We are programmed to look at faces that way - eyes, mouth, nose. There have been lots of studies done on how we examine faces.

I very nearly posted a photograph of the Beijing Opera House taken by an architect who is a friend of a friend, D80 + 18~200 at 20mm. Hardly its best FL!! Or a very good lens. But a wonderful piccy; beautiful composition. I refrained from posting it because it isn't mine to post.
