This really should have scored much higher. One of my favorites from the challenge.

could be cool except for the surface .. not the best choice and for me a tad too much blur in the background

The DOF is a little to tight in this and the colour (Silver) stops any chance of defination of the background kisses. I think a different choice of base colour would have helped also.

Great idea and great use of the DoF. My only problems are the strong bright areas on the front row of kisses and the table (or whatever) you have used for the base.

Background seems a bit too blurred. Somewhat distracting and uncomfortable on the eye.

Nice image - I like the way the shallow DOF turns the massed Kisses into a sparkling background. Not enough chocolate actually on display in it's nekkid glory for my tastes but a nice image. Would it have been more appealing with a plain coloured surface rather than the slightly dull marble?
