I had the idea for this earlier, but ran up against other time constraints and a somewhat recalcitrant model.

Handheld in macro mode, one incandescent light. Pretty tight crop with rotation to get rid of most of the distracting background and avoid the shadow of the camera on the subject. Some tone/color adjustment, light sharpening (what's the point with a soft-focused image?).

Nice picture. The soft focus works and the shadows work too.

Very nice, intimate shot. Point of view is wonderful. The only nitpicky thing that I could mention is the right wrist, which seems to have just a tad too much light. Nice work. 9

This is a really great image. Reminds me of all the magic of being a kid.

Great idea! But, I think It would have been nice to see more of the child's profile, and in better focus on this one.

Neat idea, I would have liked just a tad more detail in the coin. Just enough that on close examination you could tell which it is. 6

this is a great idea.. Think it would have been a bit better sharper but it's certainly not spoiled.. 8
