I've had this in portfolio for a few months but it didn't get too many views so hopefully it won't be easily recognised.

Taken with a 30year old manual Pentax 135mm f2.5 prime which isn't on the list of lenses.

yesterday bought this lense. Surprised to see there is only one pic from it. It is sharp as people say and this pic shows.

Have to agree with Tim. It's a wonderful shot. So perfect. Congrats on the overall placement, the pb for the year, and the 1st birthday celebration!

Really beautiful photo. The light and skintones are perfect, the white background doesn't overwhelm, it's got wonderful clarity without being oversharpened, and it's not overprocessed in the least. Lovely subjects, too. I awarded ten 10s this round, and this was one of them.

What a tender image - great use of B&W.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I love B&W images. I like the emotion that you show in this shot; very loving. The white background and just being off center make this for me. Great photo, nice job. -BB

Love this sweet portrait. Cute position - reminds me of the "legend" about how people got dimples at the base of the backs...angel kisses. : ) Very nice shot. Back to bump you up to 9. Adding to fav's.

Beatiful, the lighting and contrast are perfect. Works well in B&W.

This is beautiful. I love the composition. The B&W works perfect here. Great work.

Nicely composed and executed. An image that will always be a very special memory. Focus is bang on. I may have tried to minimize the wasted space on the right and ensure that the mother's entire head was captured. The pose will have filed the entire image and still supported the rule of thirds. Good Luck. 7.

I like the open space to the right. It appears as though you are about to place the baby into something. Perhaps a rocketship? (Blame Posthumous)

What a cute baby. I bet this a shot mom and family will treasure forever.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Unbelievably beautiful capture. Exposure is just so dead-on. Bet you have clients lining up around the block if this is representative of your work.

I just became a member of this forum. I'm a young portrait photographer looking to learn new techniques and possibly share a little of what I've done. But your portrait stopped me in my tracks. I had to let you know how much I adore your work. This photo is very tender and loving. The color tone you chose works well for this type of shot. Great job!
