    I love the soft focus. Lovely image.

    Cheryl Jacobs Nicolai said (28 Jun 2008):

    Thanks very much. Yvonne, the softness comes from diffusion via a piece of nylon pantyhose under the enlarger lens. I prefer that method over soft focus lenses because I can control the effect much more carefully.

    Oh cool. I was just about to ask how you got that soft effect, but still maintained a bit off sharpness on the figure. Thanks for answering that. Very interesting technique.
