This is a photo of my daughter after an application of gentian violet to treat thrush.

There are SO many reasons why I shouldn't submit this (out of focus, poor compostition, etc.) but I just had to post it when I saw this week's challenge. But lets face it, I posted it more as a mom than a photographer and I truely expect a horrible score.

As a mother, I think it's a beautiful image more than deserving of a fabulous score! You have a beautiful daughter. I love the tiny, sweet stage. :oD

This is such an ugly photograph that I feel my soul has been degraded by it.

They make medicine for that you know. Oh wait, that's NOT medicine is it? Hooray for not flowers!

it's not a visual scavenger hunt, it's a photo contest. entering photos that are out of focus isn't a great way to score high in a contest.

good luck in the future.

Poor baby. He/she is out of focus all together.

Honestly its not appealing. Maybe you like it just because its your baby but for stanger...hmm. For picture taking I suggest to use plain colors as bacground etc. nothing stripy or dotty. Also seems you went too much in close up and missed the focus. Every camera have different minimal focus range, you should check your or use macro mode.
