Took this on day number 34 of her young little life. Every day she becomes more and more extraordinary.

Neat Image to clean the 1600iso noise. Color changes to black and white, and alittle USM.

Great shot, maybe my favorite of the challenge.

I'm marking your shots =). I wouldn't recommend of having images in your portfolio that are very similar to one in challenges. Or at least hide the similar images in your portfolio until the challenge is over.
Nice shot, I like the tones, and the expression represented (old and new).

This is my favorite of the challenge.

AAAAWWWWW She is so sweet, nice job!

Aww, this is a nice one. If you go to my profile you'll see a very similar shot =) I think you've used too much sharpening, this kind of photo is allowed to be a bit soft. Composition would be better without the negative space on the right. 7

iIm sure she is. what a pretty gift god give you. But I dont think the compositiong on this pic is adecuate. the blur in the up left is to much. good try and keep trying.

This is a very beautiful photo. Great job. I hope you dont get the "I dont see what is extraordinary" quote from anyone, they could not understand. Life itself is the most extraordinary photo we could possible take. Great job. I love it. 10

Yes, she is.

Nice shot - and I have to disagree - MY daughter is the most extraordinary! ;-) Excellent shot.

this phot has beautiful contrast and lighting but DOF for me is cruel. I know the eye is drawn towards the hands but the face being out of field makes it seem distorted. I think a slightly greater DOF would have been better, just to get baby's face a little clearer

nice photo....lots of emotion captured well....I like the shorter depth of field too....just enough!!
07/02/2004 06:47:35 AM
This is great compositionally. I'm just not sure that you wouldn't have had more impact if the DOF was enlarged enough to keep both generations in focus. Either way, nice shot.
07/02/2004 06:31:20 AM
She is indeed.
07/01/2004 08:15:09 PM
I just love this photo. The way bubby has a hold on the hand (kind of like a feeling of security). The tone/colour is brilliant as to is the contrast. The dof is perfect, so we can still see the childs face. An excellent capture.
07/01/2004 06:06:59 PM
a really well thought out image, great dof - hope this does well
07/01/2004 05:33:58 PM
whos to say what Extraordinary is ... i dont really know myself so nice shot.7
07/01/2004 03:11:15 PM
very nice
07/01/2004 01:40:19 PM
I know the feeling well

Good hand placement as it leads our eyes straight up to the infant's face. Sepia/duotone was also a good choice. Focus seems to be a bit soft on the hands however. And it's confusing because above the infant's fingers I see a sharpening halo so I'm not sure what you did here. Maybe it's just my eyes.

Nice photo. Good job.
06/30/2004 05:06:18 PM
I adore this shot for being so unusual. It really is EXTRAordinary.
06/30/2004 11:35:08 AM
The most extraordinary thing in life indeed. Beautiful. Great job bringing focus to the hands. 10 for sure.

Starnge, normaly "my baby pics" score between 1 and 5 with me.
This one is done different, and this is realy a great way to show this picture.
You could realy score high with this baby photo, 8
Very nice!
