This is a very precious shot. I think it is definately one to treasure.
The lighting does seem bright though, since the photo doesn't have much contrast. There's not a large range of tones. You may have done this on purpose, but I think I would prefer it with a wider range of tones.
Focus does seem soft, but that does not bother me with this image. What does distract a bit is that the blanket seem more in focus than the tiny feet, which puts a little more attention on the blanket rather than on the feet. It's not a huge deal, but something I notice.
I like the angle and framing/cropping. The centered placement of the feet works for this shot. Doesn't always work for all shots, but this one it does.
What does not work is the border. I think that with such a soft, tender photo, the enormous black border kind of overpowers the subject. A small border, I think, would work better.
There also seems to be a bit of grain/noise in the feet. Not noticable in the blanket, but you can see it some in the feet. I don't really know how to fix this other than maybe a noise reduction software.
Overall a nice photo to look at, but could benefit from different lighting/contrast. Still very nice.

The light is dull and you can see a little noise if you look closely. I think its a good idea though.

I like the softness, you can just about reach out and tickle those toes and feel the blanket...don't like the title though - seems forced, obvious...kiss those toes for me!

All I can say about this photo is that the feet are better looking than mine!

Cute feet and toes-great idea. Seems a bit underexposed to me-maybe you were trying for a soft shot?

focus seems a bit soft to me, also I don't care for this thick black border with this shot.

Cute and imaginative. It does however give me a feeling of not being accedental.. I can't prove it so good score anyways. Nice job and feel the B&W was peferst for this shot.

Nice eye. There doesn't seem to be much of a range in values. Maybe you could have pushed the contrast in editing or changed the lighting during shooting. The border helps a little but might be a little wide. Another choice might have been to keep the color.

If you look to the legs, not only to foots, you will see: "x".
