Lizette, a friend of mine asked me to take a few pictures of her and her new baby. This is one of my favourites.

I had a little trouble with the website as I was posting so I wanted to add this to the first post...

Also her bracelet seems distracting it needed to go. My eyes aren't pulled to her hands craddling the unborn child but rather to the bobbles on her wrist.

What I do like is how you have captured a mother to be and her love for her unborn child this pose works extremely well.

Greetings from the Critique Club

I love this composition. A very nice refreshing look at delicate. The pose is beautiful. I do question your title I realize it is her name but you might have scored higher if those who didn't understand the realationship to delicate by titling it In a Delicate Way. I can't tell you how many romance and western novals refer to pregnancy in that manner.

I don't light how the lighting is creating shadows they are distracting and do nothing for an otherwise beautiful portrait.

Overall I have to say thank you for such a beautiful and delicate photo. I personally like it.

Most interesting (and most delicate) "Mother and Child" shot I've seen in this contest so far. Not too happy with the lighting though.

Very delicate :I The shadow behind the head is not so effective.
