Aw, this is a very cute picture. I love how you outlined the food too.

I don't like the selective desaturation. Otherwise, this would be a great shot.

Cute idea but I think the orange is too orange, at least it is on my monitor. But very cute idea and baby.
08/27/2005 07:30:05 PM
Holy crap, that's just nasty :-) 6

More eye detail (likely lost during post-processing) would help here. Creative.
08/26/2005 07:38:26 PM
This is really cute...not crazy about the blue tint but love the orange!
08/26/2005 03:21:32 AM
Really great shot. The composition and lighting are terrific. In my opinion though the post processing actually detracts from the image rather than enhance it. Good luck with the challenge.

selective desaturating i personally feel does not suit this photo, and the contrast between the skin and food is too much to be complimenting the photo.
08/25/2005 11:27:53 PM
Cute. Nice colors.

What a little cutie. Not sure about the blue... maybe B&W instead. The blue makes it look as though the food was painted on.
08/25/2005 04:29:14 PM
Nice job. The selective saturation really works well here. Great expression on your model's face. Nice focus, DOF, light. I like the crop, though I expect some will complain that part of the arm & head are cut off. 9

impressive desat!
messy babies are fun, and this one provided you with a great opportunity to show off your postprocessing skills... but this just ain't a nude.
08/24/2005 10:47:49 PM
I don't really like the selective desat though a very creative image for the subject. Good Luck.
08/24/2005 09:39:55 PM
Good selective de-sat. Cute shot, well composed.

Cute photo, but I'm not too keen in the processing.
08/24/2005 06:27:49 PM
lol - unfortunately I still eat like that. Great title. Perfect expression too. To nitpick, maybe if the crop were a little larger so as to include the whole arm and whole head. I think the border works well for this shot. Well done.
08/24/2005 09:16:48 AM
good color play, beautiful little person;-)

Scary choice of color. Seems to fit food challenge more than nude challenge. Baby is adorable.
08/24/2005 02:32:13 AM
very cute, like the orange color.

wonderful shot - I really love the selective desat.

Fun, emotive, a great capture. The only thing I dont agree with is the blue tint, that would be the only thing I would change.

I'm not quite sure what to say about this picture. I actually find it a little gross. technically speaking, the composition is nice, although its a little wierd that the left side is cut the way it is (barely skin cut). the purple is perharps a little too purple rather then giving a 'Sepia in purple tone look'. DOF is quite nice, although i'd wish for a completly body in focus. Since its a portrait, some better lighting in the eyes would've helped some. 6
08/23/2005 01:29:34 PM
Maybe you should have picked just either one, color or b/w. This is good photo but the ps work is to evident.
08/23/2005 11:37:38 AM
dont know what kind of comments you've been receiveing about the desat, but i love it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2005 07:35:46 AM
quite cute, hope ya ribbon
08/23/2005 07:02:19 AM
The selective desaturation is not working for me but good picture though.
08/22/2005 11:42:57 PM
Doesn't look like the baby got anything in it's mouth. I think this is a cute photo, but maybe too much a snapshot. But I have no room to talk I didn't have the guts to submit a photo. Good luck.
08/22/2005 11:31:22 PM
Nice rich orange color against the light background makes for a very good picture in my option. The baby in the picture is very handsome btw.

IMHO this is a very cute shot. But the Blue and orange fight to much in the pic. (And I'm a Denver Bronco's fan.) 7
08/22/2005 10:49:44 PM
the food looks radioactive it's so bright
08/22/2005 10:01:29 PM
Positively adorable... I love the selective desat.
08/22/2005 08:48:45 PM
we have a winner! .. holy cow that is cool! 9

the treatment of the shot in terms of color (red on blue) is a bit akward imo. its cute but not really an artistic nude...
08/22/2005 07:33:09 PM
Oh dear. Sorry, but I find this awful. Not sure why, but it doesn't work for me
08/22/2005 06:45:39 PM
the desat of all but the food works well, but i don't know about turning the baby blue - its kind of morbid imho. Hes a cute little guy though.
08/22/2005 05:51:01 PM
I dont think the blue tones work well here. I'm fine with the selective desat and the vivid orange...but the blue tint doesn't feel right to me.
08/22/2005 03:59:23 PM
This is such a cool baby photo.
Love the expression & desat.

Not crazy about the orange/ blue saturation. The baby is cute, but this looks like a quick shot but maybe that's just me.

I love the composition but the color is off and doesn't look real.
08/22/2005 08:21:35 AM
Great shot! PP is spot on. Excellent use of contrasting colors. 10

This scores well on the cuteness factor alone. Yuck! Strained carrots - I'd wear it before I ate it too. :) Technically, it looks like the left eye is over sharpened and the right eye is blurry. I would think this is due to aperature and post processing. The composition and the crop work well. The POV is perfect for this shot. I like the use of blue rather than black to contrast with the orange - good choice. Frame doesn't detract. 7 - good luck in the challenge!

oh sweet!

I really like this shot. I like the blue/orange combo of colors, and the focus is great.Good composition and very nice full tonal range.
