This adorable little guy is my friends son. I love this hat (this has been used in a challenge before) and I love the trunk along with it. He was so good and when I caught this shot, I knew I had the perfect shot!

Editing was USM, sharpen, Neat Image, Dodging of the eyes, Saturation sponge on eyes, cloned out some fuzzies on his hat and hand, turned to Sepia, and played with the levels.

I love this shot, which means... it will probably bomb, but no matter what, it's still my favorite for the month!

Hi Lorrie,
Fantastic image. However I did notice two things here that caught my eye. The hinge on the chest is a little distracting & the burning around the eyes (ring) just don't seem normal. Other then that why mess with perfection wonderful image.

Great expression, beautiful child and fantastic colour tones.

Love it! Excellent choice of color treatment, lighting, composition, and the model did a fantastic job :-) My only nitpick is that the young lad/lady's right eye (my right - his/her left) looks sharper than the left.

Great B&W portrait. Good lighting. What a cute pose. Nicely done.
05/03/2007 11:36:30 AM
Oh man! This kid is adorable with that hat on!!! :D It's a shame that the focal point seems to have hit the hands and railing leaving his eyes too soft. Nonetheless, this has to be framed and kept as a memento. :) Good luck in the challenge.
05/03/2007 03:18:10 AM
Very cute and photogenic!
05/02/2007 08:16:05 PM
Those eyes are amazing. The tones are perfect here. Great shot!!!
05/01/2007 05:22:46 PM
I am giving this photo a 7 because I really like it. The only thing that distracts me is the size of the baby's hands. They seem like they look to large in the picture.
05/01/2007 04:00:03 PM
this is so adorable! I love the sepia/brown tones!
05/01/2007 10:38:58 AM
