When this challenge popped up, I knew i was going to do a dandelion because I had taken many bokeh pics of dandelions before and I think this is my best. I know the center is slightly out of focus, but the wind prevented me from getting a completely still shot even with the tripod. Hope you enjoy!!!

Would prefer the background dandelion to be in a different spot and not obstructed by the top dandelion. But a nice clear photo.

i like the angle you shot this at, it's different. i do think the dandelion below it is kind of distracting because of it's bold color.

Beautiful image! The yellow flower does take away, but its still a great photo. Good technique.

Technically I like this; focus and exposure.

Artistically I find it busy and the bright yellow fights for attention. With such a strong suject the yellow blob detracts rather than adds.
