Thanks alot for all the comments - also nice to have one from the Critique Club! :) I got a tip on how to add text about the picture after the challenge but I still can't seem to figure it out.

What I wanted to say about the picture:

Lighting: daylight from my window.
The model: is my 2 months old firstborn.
The reason I didn't include the rest of the face: for some weird reason I didn't want to post his pretty face on the internet "just like that" (and without his agreement ;)). But this also seemed to be the only way to show the "bubbles" as the main subject.
Photoshop: slightly adjusted the contrast using curves.

My first entry and all that... so I'm just happy that it scored above 4!

Greetings from the Critique Club!

First impression - To be honest, it wasn't my idea of an appealing subject on first glance. But I do appreciate that it's an excellent "macro" - very well lit, excellent sharpness and focus, and quite representative of baby bubbles.

Technically, as I mentioned, it's well done. The totally picky would point out the blown spot on the chin, but I had to go looking for something to pick on - it certainly doesn't jump out at you. I think I'd almost like the lips less on the center horizontal - maybe include a bit of the nose.

In the end, after studying it for awhile, it really is a sweet picture. I'd say you definitely won over the parents of young chilren with it!

Wow this is a great macro. It's good and should have scored higher.

though this is pretty good quality, this type of subject is usually much cuter on my own flesh and blood.

Lol. Beautiful tones, good and sharp and a good choice of crop.

It takes me a moment to figure out what it is that I am actually seeing. Then, the first thing that my mind figures out is the bubbles (that's good - that's the challenge), then I see the lips. Nice try.

Heh. I was wondering whether anyone would enter baby snot bubbles, and you've come the closest. :)

Great detail on the bubbles and lips. It feels weird to just have the mouth though...maybe a crop that included the nose or all of the chin would help.

I have a feeling that this looks much more appealing to parents of babies than it does to other viewers...
Very crisp focus, but on a purely subjective level, I am not keen.

Yuk. Not my idea of a nice photo subject.
