I like everything about this except..... the lighting is a bit too much. Still giving it an 8. Good job.

Beautiful tones, the shadowing adds to the "feel" of the photo. Nice concept for this challenge.

That is adorable! :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/23/2004 02:17:38 PM
very good, up close and personal, great fit to the challenge. I think some light in the eyes would have made it perfect. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/23/2004 03:37:22 AM
Good lighting. The highlights are a tad too high for my tastes. Wonderful image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/22/2004 11:12:16 PM
This is a beautiful photo. The only suggestion I would be to try to capture the childs eyes completely closed, or try to bump up the fill light just a bit. Not being able to see the open eyes conveys a sadness instead of the warmth that the rest of the picture emits. Excellent work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/22/2004 09:52:16 PM
Absolutely beautiful, I love the shadows, that accentuate the baby's chubbiness, and his/her expression. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/22/2004 09:25:01 PM
Fantastic! Very "Touching" in every sense of the word. One of my faves this week!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/22/2004 09:22:07 PM
One of the best photos of this kind that I've seen. The only distraction is how bright that ear and cheek are, but the shot still looks great. Very nice job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/22/2004 08:19:12 PM
What a beautiful photo that really portrays the challenge wonderfully.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/22/2004 07:51:32 PM
Color tones are warm and soft, A trifle bright, but any darker and I guess part of Baby's face would be lost. Lovely photo.

something seems off about the ear ...but i'd still say this should come out in one of the top 5 positions

Too much neat image or diffused glow......almost surreal.

What a great photo for the family album... Well lit, although I would have liked a little bit of fill light from the front.. 8
