Greetings from the Critque Club

Such emotion here definately fits the challenge well.

Your lighting and dof are perfect here.

The only real thing I noticed that was wrong here was the print on the babys clothes.

I'm not going to try and point out flaws here cause really there isn't much here to improve on this is already outstanding.

I like the photo; I hate the border (but I don't judge it).

amazing. so much emotion. It would get a 10 from me if there wasn't a bear in the lower right and the cuticles were more maintained. j/k

As a father myself this shot really hits home for me. There's something special when a child grabs hold of your hand / finger like that. I know when my two boys did it I felt like I was on top of the world.

Okay about the shot. I really feel the composition here is top notch. Tones and lighting are nothing less than perfect. The only thing I can nit pick (and I'm really stretching here) is the little ones PJ's on the right hand side. Either way what a perfect shot for this challenge, it's done very well and really captures a great moment between a father and his child.

Edit: cause I can't spell or compose a sentence! hehe!

inevitable submission. a convolution of fingers both large and small...

Beautiful tonal range and a great shot. The little teddy bear picture is a distraction - my eyes keep being drawn to it - but otherwise, it's a beautiful image. 8

I like its metaphorical meaning on how holding on is a delicate connection.
