Very nicely and tastefully done. 9

Nice composition. I like the lines in this photo. On the negative, I don't like the exposure too much. It needs to be brighter...

if the woman were a cow, then yeah, this would qualify as dairy. nice baby, and nice eyes on the baby. 5

Awwwww. . . .how cute is that! Very well done! One of my favorites in this challenge.

This is beautiful (how could it not be?). I would prefer a different angle, more down towards the baby as if seen through mother's eyes.
I'm not always a fan of black and white, but it works in this case. Very nice.

i guess this is somebody's dairy,. Hard to tell if the baby is real. Really great photo!

Those big dark eyes are awesome.. The baby soft smoothness really comes through.

I can't believe you would want to show an intimate time with the world!!! interesting....
08/26/2005 02:42:24 AM
I guess this would work if momma was a cow. Nice focus on the baby's eyes though.

Great photo and darling baby!!

You know there are so many technically wonderful photos in this challenge. However, if you look at my not so perfect entry you will see something I see here, originality. There are just so many ways to splash mike with cookies and strawberry's but that doesn't move me as this photo.

This photo moves me deeply as it depicts life from life. A child depending on the mother at a visceral level which is unmatched on any other plane. This is worth more then gold on both parts, the love the mother is giving her child and the comfort the child displays in it's eyes.

Technically the shine in the child's eyes is wonderful. The fact it is in black and white adds to the simplicity of this life altering experience for the child. And that cute Little nose.

Well I usually only give one or two 10's out, this time it is going to be only one 10, this one. Be well and thanks for sharing this with us.

His/her expression is so wonderful. The B&W tonality is also well done. 7.

classic shot!!...love the expression...9

That is going to be a fun photo to show a prom date years from now. Ill bet the kid will feel inclined to destroy this photo once it is discovered I would. Tangent aside, good shot.

Awwww I remember those days with my children. Hopefully, others will appreciate how precious a moment you have captured. I might have played a bit with the brightness/contrast just to see what the result would be.
08/24/2005 09:13:58 PM
Nice closeup and I love the baby's large eyes.
08/24/2005 08:47:10 PM

cool pic... great idea

Beautiful baby!!! Those eyes are beautiful. I might up the contrast and remove about 3 inches from the left side - it's not necessary to convey the message.

Mommas milk isn't considered dairy......but the photo is really sweet and I nursed 3 children myself. I remember expressions like this. Cute.
