I feel the background is too busy, although blurred, but the Bokeh of the lens is somehow ugly. The look of the face is OK but i personally would prefer a bit more detail sharpness to achieve a punchy, dramatic look.... but thats personal taste :). Dragan look would be too heavy but something in that direction. Try High Pass sharpening ....

Hey thanks -i'm interested in what you said about the bokeh. Is that because of the lens or the background.My primary aim of the photo was to create Bokeh. Do I need a better lens to pull it off? I used the 55-300vr.
