Nice composition and a sweet sentiment. I wish you had a darker black somewhere, the highlihgts are well done, but the darkest tones seem to be a middle grey, and the flatness steals some of the drama from this shot.

I really like this, but think it could have benefited by reducing the brightness.

personally i would like to see a greater tonal range. nothing is solid white or solid black. i believe it would have a greater impact if it weren't so muted looking.

Very sweet! IMO, it could use lots more contrast. It is very middle gray throughout and lacks a good tonal range. I would use levels to bring the shadows down and the highlights up.
