Spotter the last shot is technically good. However I just feel as if the pose is forced. Maybe it's just me. Just doesn't give off a natural look by the one being photographed if that makes any sense.

Hmmm, I do not feel that the pose in the last one (the one named Les Memoires XIX) is forced - but that is personal. But I looked at the picture once again and I really do not like the bokeh of the 58/1.2. But then, that also is personal . Whatever the technical details however, it is a well executed picture

The portrait as such is excellent, I think. But I understand the point about the bokeh - it's too busy. This image might not be shot at F/1.2 - or am I wrong about that?

Well executed portrait. The white and blue spots with the red blur in the top left corner don't bother me, it balances out the shirt and accents the eyes; personal taste. Same with the bokeh, I think it works well with her angular features and sharp pressed shirt.

this was at a bowling alley, I used the light from the soda pop machine as key light and the light from the kitchen/concession stand behind (right) as kicker

Again, a very beautiful - and beautifully lit - portrait! I think it could do without the bright strip on the left, but that may be a matter of taste. Ingenious lighting setup, indeed!

TFS!

I like this one, I like it more every time I see it, but I still feel I want the face to be a little sharper (and I understand why you didn't sharpen it).

At first I thought this was a scanned film picture. The bokeh of the 58/1.2 fits the scene - I usually do not like the bokeh of the 58/1.2, but here it is just part of the picture.

Thank you for sharing these (and other) pictures, enjoy them
