When I saw this challenge I couldn't help but try to recreate my favorite photo I did "For You Mommy" This one though doesn't seem as heartwarming. The dandelion seems to have made the other photo very warm and endearing.

This would have been so much better without the light from the flash (in my opinion). Maybe could have used a pinlight or flashlight of some sort to illumintate the white a little better. I just have a thing against flashes.

I almost didn't notice the face in the background! Nice composition and exposure. You didn't blow out the white of the flower and that is good. However, to me, the face in the background looks a little purpleish (It may just be me and my color issues). Is this a white balance issue?

Very nice separation of foreground and background using shallow DOF.
