Now that's a familiar sight - I have been an OB nurse for 30 years- never tire of this first glimpse of new life . Wonderful capture- you will treasure it.

And now I'm sure he's walking and speaking legible sentences. Hard to believe, isn't it? :)
And ten years from now he'll be running around with friends and he'll probably have a camera of his own.
They grow up awefully fast, but you'll always have the pictures to remember.
Well done. Way to take a picture!

Yep... I remember both my son's coming out like that... very intense way to watch a birth!

Also, I suspect that you son will "love" this picture when he is 17 and you are showing his girl friend!

congratulation! My, he looks sad! Shocking picture for a mother to be...Too bad not many people take pictures like this. I would be very curios to see myself minutes after being born.

beautiful birth shot! I can relate to this picture because that is the facial expression I make every day I come into work.

extreme... as langdon said it's really a strong shot... at the same time one of the best a father can give as present to his newborn

I've just noticed your categories for this: Family and Nude. Shame we couldn't have more than two because Photojournalism is a must.

They'll be a shock in store for someone who's surfing Nude for some boobies!

Amazing - and you know what, his little expression shows that he has already seen what's in store for him - never seeing his Dad's face, just a lens.
: )

Seriously though you've proven yourself here. Welcome to addicts' corner!

Thanks for the feedback, I think this is by the best shot I have ever taken. I just wish I could submit it for 'In the Beginning...'.

As tough as this is to stomach, it's one of the most amazing images I've ever seen in the 25 years I've lived on this planet. You really know how to capture the moment. Stunning.

holy crap that is an amazing shot-though I don't think you will want to show it to him unless you are really mad at him..Really MAD!
great capture!!!
