This was part of a shoot of did where I totally focused on this child. I was intent on capturing the personality there fore shot completely in black and white with all natural lighting. The father was totally besotted with his fourth son....the emotion was clear for all to see.

::: Critique Club :::

Hi, my name is Kari and from the critique club.

First Impression - the most important one:
forth place ... do I need to say more.

Composition:
I like this .. the use of negative space pulls the eye into the picture well.

Subject:
meets the challene ... and does so well. Of course you have the trolls but we all deal with them.

Technical (Colour and light):
lovely use of black and white ... good defintiion of the eyes ... and lovely sharp details.

To grow its vote?:
Shoot number 3 ... that is all i can suggest then you can ribbon :)

Summary:
lovely ... emotive and just right.

If you've got any questions about this critique, please feel free to contact me via the PM system.

Cheers

Kari

coming back to comment: I so love the photos that show success in this manner.... As I study this photograph I am moved by the expression on the man's face as he peers into the eyes of the infant and receives back the adoring gaze of the infant.... yes, this is success..... and photographed wonderfully - bumping up

Priceless. Revisiting to give you a bump up. Beautiful lighting and I love the texture contrast of the young and older skin.

Amen to that, brother. Eight from me (the boy's a little soft and his blanket (?) at bottom left distracts, but hey... great photo.)

Beautiful black and white. Almost a ten but the babies arm is blurred which makes me keep looking at it.

Beautiful! The only thing I might change was keeping the father's hand out of the foreground. It is a bit distracting. You did a great job with this shot!
