How cute!

very cute...

I'd have gone with "Little Bit of Heaven" as the title, but I LOVE the idea! Move over Anne Geddes.

Great shot.

Addresses the concept of the challenge
12/16/2007 11:54:37 PM
sssssssoooooooooo cute, but a little bit out of focus
12/16/2007 09:59:39 PM
I love the subject, but it could be sharper, and the lighting could be better. Beautiful baby!
12/16/2007 10:43:51 AM
Adorable baby, but it's OOF
12/16/2007 08:07:54 AM
great concept and beautiful baby - but the image seems to suffer from being a bit blurry

Wonderful setup and subject. I wish the focus was sharper.
12/15/2007 02:00:36 PM
Darling baby!!! a couple of critiques: being at the same level as the baby would have given us a greater perspective his line. Better resolution would have preserved detail. Perhaps a bit more light as well.

Aw, looks like Anne Geddes...could do with a bit more post processing...
12/13/2007 08:37:46 PM
Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww how adorable!!!!
12/13/2007 07:27:12 PM
Cute. I am sorry this photo wasn't done professionally. It was done fast, so baby wouldn't wake up. Maybe idea came in last minute. But with professional photo, better lights, sharper focus, closer shot... This would be one for the magazines :/
12/13/2007 09:43:17 AM
Great idea, that is just so sweet. Could bebenfit from alittle sharpness though. Good work
12/12/2007 09:50:42 PM
awwwww... I'm a sucker for these kinds of shots, well done.
12/12/2007 06:04:43 PM
cute! perhaps a tighter crop and adjustment on the focus.
12/12/2007 03:00:05 PM
cute baby....
12/12/2007 02:20:59 PM
i think this could have done without the poinsettas, and with sharper focus on the baby.
12/12/2007 12:18:58 PM
great concept, but very blurry.
12/12/2007 10:04:06 AM
cute photo but not the best quality.
12/12/2007 08:12:55 AM
i think it it is out of focus or there is a hand shake ..
but i like the idea very well
12/12/2007 07:12:36 AM
12/12/2007 06:02:05 AM
nice idea but not in focus :(
12/12/2007 05:38:01 AM
awwwwww... how sweeet!! irresistibly cute! nice picture, and i like the plants too, could benefit of sharpening, its a bit too blurry, should be more focused on baby (IMHO)
12/12/2007 04:32:19 AM
what a pity this isn't sharp...
12/12/2007 02:36:28 AM
out of focus
12/12/2007 12:41:47 AM
Such a lovely set up: I would have gone down a bit lower and taken it straight on. Perhaps tweek in PS for greater contrasts?
12/12/2007 12:40:25 AM
You couldn't be more right.
12/12/2007 12:16:45 AM
This would be perfect with just the baby and a white background..
