The only thing about this wonderful image that I feel could be improved is the red material on the lower right. If it were to be blurred or softened a bit, it might sit a bit better with the rest.

Lush color and textures. I love the way you framed the subject a bit askew.

Very nice DOF... i like how you kept the eyes of the child in focus and the rest blurry. nice capture.

I love this photo. Great emphasis on the eyelashes. Color is also good.

excellent composition, great colors. i have a similar entry that is getting hammered for it's shallow dof, but, for me, mine was intentional, as is probably yours. i like it the way it is, and imagine that that if you wanted a deeper dof, you would have done so. beautiful work, definitely something to be proud of, regardless of the score. good luck!

Look at those lashes! Love the point of view...I'm not a big fan of baby/kid pictures but this is lovely.

Great shot from an interesting angle. I like how the red color is reflected from the lips to the piece of cloth in the bottom right corner. The image has a pleasing softness with a good use of selective DOF. Superb.
