Challenge: Human Portrait (Minimal) (Minimal Editing I)
Collection: Studio with People
Camera: Nikon D7000

Wow, first ribbon for Andrea and it's a blue!

He wants to thank everybody for votes and very nice comments (especially about his eyes, teeth and smile).

In his immense goodness he decided to forgive who asked for a validation request  ^_^ (but taking a look at the voting pattern no one penalized the photo for suspecting a rules violation).

My last choice was among 7 pictures, but almost all of them were very good. 

I asked my TPL friends and it seems it was a sort of plebiscite for this one.

Andrea is exactly what you see in this picture. A constant smile on his face - I have to say that I'm a lucky father!

Brilliantly done! It took me moment to realise that there was a blanket wrapped around the face. Should the credit go to Andrea or to the photographer? :)

A cute child as well! You have more reasons than one to be a proud father! Congrats for your blue eyed boy's portrait.

The lighting has to be the most perfect I've seen to achieve this in minimal. He is a wonderful model and lucky to have such a skilled father that will preserve many a great photo of his growing years. Congrats on a very deserving Blue!

This just touches my heart. What a sweet child. Voted earlier. Bumping it up to 9

this kid has to get bumped a little

This is the sign of a true professional, expertly done, with minimal editing WOW!!

His big eyes sparkle with the curiosity that any child at this age should have, I see he has two little teeth poking out now, his beautiful dark hair, and magnetic smile. Of course I'm a big sucker for cute child images, especially of babies. If this doesn't win, I'll walk to the moon!
