Good concept, well composed. You may benefit from an even more shallow DOF. Nice use of subtle amounts of color.

Really nice comp on this shot. More contrast on the dart may have given it more pop. Maybe a metal color for the shaft would've accomplished this.

You cheated - those aren't reall bulls-eyes! The photo is great, though.

How about adding a little panning to indicate flight?

Perfect use of DOF. Provides context, and sense of anticipation. Dart choice was also good, I like the dark dart lit against the black background. Finally, Cropping and subtle frame work really well. One of the best I have seen so far.
