Wow! Looking at her big glassy eyes, I bet she'll be a handfull in about 10 years!

If I voted, I would've given this a 10 - It's very very very hard to get little ones still - not only that, but excellent comp. and focus choice too!

Kudos x 2!

::: Greetings from Critique Club :::

Hi, as requested, here is an indepth critique of your submission.

First Impression - the most important one:
Cute, very cute. But, with her being on someones' shoulder and a nicely out-of-focus, but unsolid background, seems more like a really good candid rather than a studio portrait to me.

Composition is fine for a protrait, although crop may be just a bit too tight.

Clear and in focus and DoF isolates her well from the background.

Technical (Color, focus, and light):
Color seems natural and well managed.
Focus is sharp and as I said earlier DoF works well for you.
Lighting and exposure are good, although the photo comes out a bit flat for me. A bit more radical curves adjustment could give this photo a bit more pop.

To grow its vote?:
Technically, all around it's a good photo. However, I (and I'm sure quite a few others) don't see it as meeting the challenge. But, she IS precious. Hell, she beat MY score :-)

Lovely shot of your niece, a keeper for sure. As always, good work from you, Terry.

Hope to see more from you soon,

The cutest baby shot i've seen in ages. She's a doll and you captured her in lovely soft light, suiting a baby.

nice light and treatment---a little more cropping into the hair would have been good!
