I shot this of my fiance and our son while they were wrestling around on a pile of laundry. I used photoshop to remove a few blemishes and turn the photo black & white.

Greetings from the Critique Club...

Hi LadyLuna22 :)

This photograph scored rather poorly in the greater scheme of the challenge. I believe that many of your comments sum up the reasons quite well. The lighting is rather weak and uninteresting. The tonality in the image isn't very expansive either... it's rather flat.

Maybe a good critique of this image would start with a question to you. If this wasn't your own photo, how would you feel about it? Since the subject(s) of this image have a different level of appeal to you personally, it's hard to look past that. You have a personal connection with the subjects that no one else here has.

You definitely need to do some experimenting with light. I'm guessing that this is lit with the on-camera flash, which isn't creating a great moood for the photo...

Cute image. I think different lighting would be more flattering.

not a big fan of the only foot/only hand pics that seem to be abundant, but it's nice

I just love baby toes - the adult ones are good too!
