As a happy snap it's not bad. The angle at least allows for a clean 
background and she isn't squinting having to look into the sun. So I could 
live with it.

However, when you know you should've bent your knees why didn't you at least 
try it? Maybe you did and the shot didn't work. There I gave you an out.;-) 
Certainly if there was a clean background without having her looking 
directly in the sun direction.

At worse you could've created a clean background by going aperture wide open 
and focused sharply on her eyes and the dandelions held closer to her face 
making for a tighter composition. And possibly a better picture.

And that me old son is what we have knees for.... to bend for better
