    right off the bat, Lucky guy
    However the weeds on her face are distracting, just a tad.
    Personally I would have lowered my aperture to make the trees bokeh, it looks bleh when it is soft like that.
    Easily fixed in photoshop.

    I like the lighting on this, but it looks like it could use a tighter crop.
    You need to get your subject out of the dead center of the image for better composition.

    Ad well it looks like you have dust on your sensor.

    Something like this

    Saved as low quality (reason for the jpeg artifact.)

    was only a quick job, But as you see, She pops more.

    Phew, at least its not just me! The title made me roflcopter...

    Good picture, but go into PS and try to get those weeds out of her face. Also, I think that blur is just a little too unnatural.
