Wow - I wasn't expecting this to go as well as it has. Still preparing myself for the possibility of joining the "7+ and no ribbon club" because there are some amazing images in this challenge. I am most excited that it looks like the image will make the profile page for the lens - the wonderful Nikon 50mm 1.8

This is my husband and my newborn son. Apologies that the image is so sappy, but I might as well take advantage of him while he's still little and cute :)

I agree with those who commented that the image isn't original - you are right of course.

Post
Thank you everyone for the wonderful comments and fantastic score. I'm so excited to get my first blue ribbon!

This one took hold of my heart from the very milisecond I first viewed it.

I'm so glad it ribboned for you. Congrats on the baby, the willing hubby, and the ribbon!

Oh yes! I had a feeling this was the standout that was going to get you a blue ribbon :) And as far as originality. . . anyone who has a baby could care less if the concept isn't original. It's something you will treasure forever! And their little feet grow so fast. You have such a small window of time to get a photo like this. I'm glad the masses silenced that nay saying voice :)

Congratulations on your first blue ribbon -- and on the birth of your baby :)!

Very well done! This should be in top 10!

Easily made my top5 favorite list from this challenge. Gotta love the little toes. Great job with all the technicals, lighting, b/w conversion, etc.
I'd only perhaps recommend darkening of the shadows/blacks or use the burn tool to darken the black fabric on the top(it also creeps in on the left side) to match the black background. Good luck with this one! :)
