Introducing my daughter - possibly my muse.

Idea came the moment I saw the title.

Sheer brightness outside forced the 4.5 aperture. For the first time I see the point in a ND filter.
My first time using a reflector too. I think I have a bit to learn about where to place the reflector relative to a) the sun, and b) the subject. Would have dropped the ISO back to 100 if I had known it was at 200.

I second that comment. This shot meets the challenge, is well done, and it made me laugh. Oh well, there's no accounting for DPC scores sometimes.

Humorous and well executed image but does not really convey a strong feeling of silence to me. 6

Like the picture but not the idea! He or she will, in any case, still make sounds.

My vote for funniest shot. Why, oh why, did you not clone out that speck on the nose???? Background is a little blown out, so it flattens the image a bit.

Good picture but my brain keeps thinking 'baby smoking a cigar' - not good.
