I think you got robbed! This photo is so nice and should have scored higher, IMHO. It's so touching and emotive that the "feel good" quality far overshadows the technical nitpicks. I gave it a 9.

although i think your subjects could be a tad sharper, I really like this!

Great bokeh, I bet the couple that is in this will treasure this image...until they break up, jk of course!

A beautiful image. The bokeh is spot on and the composition with the diagonal is excellent. A little levels adjustment would bring this to the top. But so romantic all the same.

Very well done.

The 'feel' is very much present and the colors have given a soft touch to the picture

Nice comp, nice texture, the focal plane seems to be n the ladies shoulder so therefore soft on the rest of the image, good tones, ok light, nice movement

Great shot - composition and crop are perfect, the bokeh really brings the subjects forward. One for a ribbon? Let's hope so!

Such a lovely, touching image. The BOKEH is perfect in this one.

Beautiful shot. Should be blown up and framed... Bokeh works well here to add a sense of immersion in one another.

Nice blur patters. It goes with the picture really well. Calming in a way.

Very nice image, soft tones and pleasing bokeh. 10.

Overall not sharp enough, and perhaps framed a bit too tight at the bottom, but this has soul...

The only "non-color" image I've seen so far that really did bokeh well. Very difficult to do. Good job.

...but it's June....southern hemisphere? Very nice image. You can feel the mood and warmth. Well done.

The "Bokeh" is soft and appealing, in this image...

Very sweet. If I were to change anything, I might crop a bit more off of the bottom. You could still see his thumb but eliminate part of the stripes in her sweater, and focus more on their faces. Having said that, I still love this - it is unexpected and very well composed. 8

Meets challenge very well: "... take a photograph whose subject is enhanced by the bokeh of the background." Beautiful ... I also love the expressions - very prof models, or this couple is really close - for real.

I like how the background evokes the sense of snowy trees, emphasizing the title.

Bokeh is quite harsh in this image. You can see the doughnut shaped highlights.
