Hello, your shot has been chosen for my Daily 5! This is where I choose 5 shots per day (or close enough) from the Recently Uploaded list that do not yet have comments, and comment on them.
Such an adorable shot that allows the developing personality of this cute little infant to shine through. You can note the curiosity and confusion that she has, wondering just what that giant thing is, that is pointed at her, but at the same time there is just the slightest hint of a smile, as though she wishes to be amused, but is not quite sure it is the appropriate response.
On a technical note, there is some artifacting around the whole picture that, from my experience, would point to an over-sharpening of the image. It can be hard to strike that delicate balance between wanting a sharper image, and doing just a little too much, so it's something to watch out for. You may have missed focus on the eyes here because of the texture of the knitted sweater. I find that in portraits like this, manual focus is a far more reliable method to get your eyes and face at the focus you want them, rather than trying to rely on a usually fussy auto-focus method.
