I think if this was a little more soft you would have made it to the top 5. Really great shot though and very cute. Nice job...

My top pick so far. A little on the bright side and seems a bit oversharpened. But 9 anyways because of the feelings coming out of this. Optically better would have been a 10..... I just came back and gave you a 10.

I`m not usually a fan of baby pics but this is an exception.
Beautifully done.

This is so precious.
Thanks for putting a smile on my face with this shot. Great composition and for sure, found the awww factor we so desperately need more of on this site.
Bumping up another notch ((10)) Well Done!

This is so precious it hurts my heart :) I love everything about it. A perfect 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Beautiful! I do wonder if you sharpened it so much that it mottled the babies skin a bit. The fabric of the overalls and teh bear are so sharpened and stand out.

Great emotive photo, it will surprise me if this will not be in top 10.

What a sweet picture!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/05/2004 10:35:01 PM
Very precious shot. Great lighting (a bit on the high-key note), but just enough tone to pull it off. Good texture on the bear and the jeans, nice smooth skin. Love the eyelash detail. I would have liked to see a bit more of the surface on the bottom right side. As it is now, the baby appears as it is floating. Great overall photo.

Jacko?

Too darn cute! I love the colors and the simplistic style. The pose is adorable and would make a Harley guy go, "Awwww!" :-D Hehe

I gave you a 9 on this. The only thing from stopping me from giving you a 10 is that I felt you could have cleaned up the bg just a bit - I'm seeing a lingering shadow to the left of the bear and some coloring in the top right corner. Beautiful job. This is one for the scrapbook!

Great posture, how on earth did you manage to get the kid to play along? I'm guessing 200-300 shots at least, lol. Great work, you kan probably sell this for some good money (maybe try parenting magazines?)

Cute and well done. How many pics did you have to take to get the right posture?

Charming portrait. Not just another baby picture. Well done.

Adorable concept and great execution! Perfect lighting, and appealing composition. Sure hope this is hanging on someone's wall by now! It should be.

This brought a smile to my face. Kids are just so emotive. Nice job.

Absolutely a great shot! The colors and composition are great. Wish I could tell you what to do make it better but I don't see a thing to change.

I was so hoping this one came up for my review before time ran out (I'm o a dial up modem). Nicely done. My only comment is a little to brigh for my taste. I would have liked to see more contrast. But you still get a high mark here. BOL

Wow. This is one of the greatest pictures I have ever seen. Hope people don't voote you down because it is so "cute". Once again, a very touching photo. 10

A very cute pose. The photo suffers a bit from sharpening (the bear and his hair) and jpg compression (on his skin). 5, just-married

This says volumes about childhood - it is charming, touching and not overly sweet
congratulations on a fine image
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/01/2004 07:11:01 AM
It looks like the little guy is telling the bear a secret, that makes this a little different than the other photos I have seen similar to this. Nice photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/01/2004 07:09:30 AM
This is adorable but there are a few things I dont like about it. I think the pose would be 100% better than it already is if we could see the baby's face. Also you oversharpened your image. Look at the way the edges seem to glow.. that's a surefire way to tell if you oversharpened or not. It's still a very nice picture!
