Like Anita, I find the oof candies distracting and would have preferred the scene without them - of course it's contrived and adorably so. I agree with ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' pixelpig - would make a fun card. Congratulations on the HM.

Let me guess: I bet you were a bit cold there... You really should consider wearing a coat! ;-)
Congrats again Samantha, I love your use of DoF, which supports your creative ideas so well.

Cute and very clever. Nice use of aperture to create depth. Crisp, sharp with no obvious edges from the combination - excellent concept. I like it
