Cute shot, though I'd like to see more light on the child's face.

It's a very nice photograph but too much shadow hinders a good view of the baby's face. Very sweet nevertheless.

It would be nice to see her face.

dark in the face needed more light

i wish this was lighter.

I think the photo would have looked more peaceful with less constrast. It's a good photo anyway.

The face is a touch too dark (simply because I would like to see her features). having said that, though, I imagine getting light in her face might have wakened her, and as the mother of a 4 month old, that is not a cool thing to do. Beautiful child, peaceful picture. Well done.

Face dark against bright white blanket. Too bad its so hard to see the new baby in this shot. The side of the baby seat is distracting also.

would love to see her face better - tad too much contrast for me. I'm sure you wish the blanket was covering the handle too. Looks like you have an angel among you though! :)

Sweet baby! I wish I could see her face better.

Too dark on the baby's face for me.

What a cutie she is! If only her face wasn't in the shade and her features were more visible, this would be even better.

The composition, contrast and textures are very nice here, but it really needs some more of baby's face (almost entirely hidden in shadow. I can make out most of her nose and a little of her mouth, but her other eye is just not showing). Increasing the gamma to 1.3 might work, but would take the edge off of the blacks and reduce the apparent contrast. Maybe it would work high-key. Best bet would have been to reflect or shine some light onto her face.

She is sooo beautiful!

Cute kid, I'll vote her an 8 cause she has the same name as our grand-daughter.

Sweet baby! Baby shots can be really tough. The problem here is with lighting, not enough on the front of the face. I used an external flash with a micro softbox for a similar photo and got very good results on most shots.

Neat shot. Well done.

Unfortunately her face is rather obscured in shadows. The light at the top of her head is nice, too bad a bit more of that had not been on her cheek.

I want to see Hannah's face, a white card on the left of Hannah would reflect just enough nlight back onto her face to add some pleasing detail. I am glad I took a second look at Hannah from home, the sharpness is awesom, but I still feel more light from high left would work great. I'm rating this higher.

Face is too dark. Lighting should have been more on the face.

Very nice photo! The composition here is great... The lighting is a little strange and *my* preference would be to have a little more light on the face... good shot, however!

I wish I could see the face of this baby.....It's just too dark

Beautiful baby, but a little dark around the face.
