Um, for the 1st pic, you should've stepped back a bit to avoid cutting her ankles.
For the 2nd one, a minor nitpick - there's a strand of hair on her right eye. you can easily PS this out.
For the 3rd one, the muted saturation works for me. The wall to her right is a wee bit distracting though as it's brighter than the rest of the photo.
Finally, nice expression. i wonder though if you can do something with the veins on her forearms - a bit distracting.
Thanks all for the comments and pointers! There are still some details i must agreed, i had missed out. The ankle, the hair, the composition and the veins. I leave everything as normal of the turned out shot.
I don't know that the trend is moving toward softness but guess i got to move to another style to pp my photos in future... Got to go back to square one to rethink on what style to pp.
No3 and 4, i did soften it using ps. The process to manipulate the original to what is being shown here, is a lengthy process... Have to keep playing with the colors...
