I would never ever have believed this was your first -- it is absolutely the work of a seasoned professional with many wins under her belt. I loved this the first time I set eyes on it -- so fresh and natural!! And I am so very happy to see it recognized for the wonderful portrait it is. Really good luck in the next round, Gena.
