This is one of those shots that just brings warmth to your heart.
I'm a bit taken back that I didn't add this in my favorites earlier. Can I add it twice? LOL
Beautiful capture.

I've looked at this photo so many times and I can't believe I haven't commented on it. How lucky you are to have captured this exact moment, the smile and everything. If this is your baby, I hope you have a huge print framed and hanging somewhere. And if it's not, I hope the parents do!

Beautiful shot--what a lovely smile, that baby is very content to be held that way.

I think it might have been nice to try to crop it to get rid of the background distractions on the lower left--I would think maybe by cropping the bottom, but you could also try the left. Post challenge, of course, there's always the clone brush....

Nice work.

Ahhh, look at that grin!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/26/2004 04:24:04 PM
This, to me, is what photography is all about. Pictures of children will rate well, even on DPC, if you can present them in a way that pulls emotion from the viewer. This is my favorite of the challenge and I hope to see it in Parenting Magazine or any number of other places that I'm sure would love to be able publish this. The pose and expression of the child are exceptional. Congratulations on an award winning shot ! ! ! Certainly a 10 from me.

nicely composed but would have liked to see a slightly sharper image, especially in the little one's face

What a graet baby shot... The expression is priceless, I hope you've got this framed on the wall somewhere! A 9. for me.

Superb moment - what a cute expression. This is one of the strongest submissions - but I must admit I'm not too keen on the muddy print. There a lot of gray values in the print but it seems to lack really strong blacks or whites. What you lose in the print quality - you MORE than gain in the WOW factor you've captured. Should finish way on up there.

Excellent captured, I almost feel secure too! B&W contrast is very good too.

I wonder what the baby is dreaming about, lovely
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/23/2004 03:23:50 AM
What an awesome expression! That little one is so young it wouldn't surprise me to find that was the first smile. Nice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/23/2004 12:03:41 AM
Wonderful composition and expression of subjec. Good focus, and terrific shot of the baby and the baby's expression. However while I like the shadow end of the tonal range, I wish there was a bit more in the hightlight end.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/22/2004 11:17:56 PM
Adorable expression. This, of course, has been done, however the expression makes it one of a kind. The baby's arm leaving the frame is a bit distracting as well as some othe the other background. I don't know what size image you had to work with, but I think this would have worked better with a tighter crop. Still a wonderful shot.

Adorable... Nice title... Beautiful shot.

very nice picture. maybe it would be better if you could have moved the blanket in the background out of the picture. very cute baby. ;)

The best of the "baby" pictures imo. Nicely done
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/22/2004 02:40:44 PM
Top score. This is soft and warm and beautiful. And the expression is priceless. I don't know what I envy more - the perfect picture, or the perfectly adorable baby! On second thought - the choice is easy, but I congratulate you on having both. :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/22/2004 01:40:15 PM
Alright, truth be told, not all babies are cute, but this one, is adoreable! Great capture!

Goregous shot, beautiful baby. Shows the feeling of security and love the child must feel.

I love the appearance of a little grin, quite content little one! 9

This image really stood out for me in this challenge. A beautiful shot and very well executed. The greyscale is excellent and the lighting is just glorious. The expression on the little guy/gals face is priceless. And the pose...the babies small and fragile frame cradled in that big masculine hand. It is a very vivid representation of security...and that baby certainly feels secure there.

I truly can't find a negative thing to say about this picture. I only hope you make this available as a print as I will certainly purchase one.

Beautiful image. I sincerely hope you place very well in this challenge. You certainly deserve to with this sample.
