I'd say "not to glow".
Diffuse glow can look ok on some shots with some specular hightlights...but all it does here is wash the image out.
I'm not a big fan of DF and think that most people that use it, over do it.
I much prefer this shot (very nice btw) without the DF
Just my opinion......

No to the glow on this one! Maybe a lighter effect, it's just to much on this shot.

Count me with the "No Glows" on this image.

Beautiful image and gorgeous model by the way.

For this image, I'd have to go with the no glow. I don't think the photo gains anything, as the background in the original is not distracting at all. Just my opinion.

Great image, the glow takes away from the punch of the image.

What lens and f stop did you use? fantastic depth of field.

Just say no to diffuse glow! Okay, yeah, I've used it once or twice, but mainly on an image I was trying to "save", and this image definitely doesn't need saving.
