This is wonderful! The lighting is perfect... How sad about the disqualification! :( From the voting it looks like it might have even ribboned!

Sorry everyone, "Basic" mistake I just didn't reallise it was a Basic editing challenge. Just didn't look at the rules before I entered if it was Basic or Advanced, I just made the photo as I most often do, used one layer in screen mode and one on top of that in soft light mode.
It is very frustrating to loose my first ribbon, because of this "basic" mistake, and I'll bet you that this wont ever happen again. I'll be back :)
But to me the main thing is that all of you seemed to have liked the photo, and I am really happy about that. Thank you everyone.

Hey there...much sorrow on the DQ...

I am curious, just what you did that was considered DQ'able?

"Gaussian blur a bit, sharpened, leveled, desaturated a bit and added a border."

None of those seem to be DQ'ble - are they???

Fín mynd, fagmannlega unnin. Þú nærð svo vel að fanga glettnina í augnablikinu. Það gefur henni mikla hlýju í samræmi við brúna tóninn. Borðinn fyllilega verðskuldaður. Ein af eftirlætismyndum mínum keppninni. Til hamingju!

Great shot, technically! Too simply and without imagination, though!
Congratulations

Lovely shot, but post-processing sounds like advanced editing to me? Regardless, an image to be proud of.

09/26/2005 10:23:16 PM
Very nice. I would have cropped a bit off the left side, to hide that part bubble and decenter the baby. Excellent lighting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/26/2005 10:37:38 AM
Super-cute. Love the dark background. Well captured.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/25/2005 09:40:49 PM
Absolutely adorable. Fantastic lighting, great expression. I love the texture of the tub and the way its tones can be found in the shadows on the baby's skin. There are a few areas where the skin looks a bit plastic-y/wonky focus which is distracting (particularly on the right side near the diaper) but for the most part it is just perfect. I gave an 8.

when you do something as predictable as a baby in bath with bubbles, you better have some original take on it and do it well. You've managed to do both, so congrats for that, but I suspect that many voters are by now tired of the whole concept, so that might cost you a few points. I, however, like this take, the kid seems to enjoy the bubblefun.
best of luck. /8

Looks like he's having a great time (full diaper & all). I like the expression, lighting, good focus, good shutter speed (e.g, right hand showing motion) , overall excellent job

Cute and lovely and a superb employment of the basin. My instinct calls for just a little more headroom. Very good color. 8

09/23/2005 07:08:08 PM
great photo I especialy like the light, almost sepia tone.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/23/2005 04:23:35 PM
Baby seems to be the focus of the pic...nice pic though.

09/23/2005 12:43:21 PM
This is darling but I wish the focus were more sharp.

wow. really nice and cute baby 10!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/23/2005 12:00:21 PM
Pure joy. Perhaps a bit more space at the top would be good though. Very sharp and clear shot. The expression on the baby's face is precious.

Great shot! I love the tone. The baby's obvious enjoyment at being a model adds a lot, too.

SO CUTE! The filtration is perfect. The tub makes the shot. I'm so used to looking at rule of thirds, I had to adjust my way of thinking and this is AWESOME> Perfect contrast and lighting as well. His pure delight is just wonderful. 10

awww very cute... three small criticisms... 1. was there a bubble above the baby? I think it would have been better not to crop that one out so we could see what he/she was reaching for. 2. the picture feels a little tipped to me (left side seems higher than right). 3. a crop with the baby more to one side or the other might have been better. Overall a great picture, though. I like the coloring.

09/21/2005 09:52:11 AM
You've captured the joy that babies bring into the world. Although I wouldn't recommend posing the child nude the contemporary diaper does not quite work with the sepia tone, however I still gave it a 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/21/2005 07:22:35 AM
love it! the only thing that would have made it better would be if you could see the bubble the kid was reaching for. I love the experession on his face. Great photo!

Cute shot & great tones.......
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/21/2005 02:57:22 AM
This is an adorable and sweet capture! The expression on the child's face is so exuberant and so full of fun and laughter that one cannot help but to smile as they view this photo. The black background is the perfect backdrop for this image for the viewer really gets to see the bubbles without them being 'lost' in a background with too many distracting object. Not to mention the the choice of a black background makes the bubbles pop out more than a white one would. The only critique I have on this shot is that I think if you had included more space in the upper half of the photo to accomendate a possible bubble that is just out of reach of this child. He/she seems to be reaching for a bubble that is not shown in the frame. If that bubble was included in the frame it would have established a even stronger connection of bubble play between the child and the bubbles floating around him/her.
