Really sorry. I didn't put the below comment on your image. I commented on another and it ended up on yours.

Perfect dof here, and it's so cool that the baby is looking right at you. Love the black and white.

True maternal instinct IMO would have the baby suckling a real breast.

A bubbling joy that brings out the best in mother. Bumping up.

I do like the (almost) square format of this photo, combined with the B&W it reminds me of the good old medium format days. The only improvement I could think of would be to have wiped off the baby's mouth first. :) Great job.

I love how sharp the baby's eyes are here. B/W works great here. Nicely done.

This is so heartwarming. There are other similar compositions in this challenge, but this one has the most natural - least soft-focus / neatimage of them all, and therefore I like this one best. I love the way the baby is staring right at the camera, blowing those spit bubbles, and smiling :-) The tones (technical and emotional) are perfect in every way.

A big fat 10 and a fav!

01/04/2006 08:23:28 PM
Ahhhhh...cute shot. Love the lighting, dof and b&w treatment. Possibly could've been improved by taking the shot more from camera left and making the "mother" a stonger element in the composition. Still very nice imagery and sure to do well.

lovely picture, except for the drool. I dunno, drool just doesn't do it for me.

Beautiful image. Likely a top ten finisher due to the "polished" look and post processing skill applied. It's always hard to get them to comply, but of course I think this would be mildly better without the slobber. Mine won't keep her mouth dry for 2 seconds though, so I know how it is. My only other suggestion would be to maybe have a little more room to the left of the baby's face. As it is, he or she seems a little crowded into the frame. The cropping of mother's face is, to me, well done and needs no work. Great shot that will likely net you a 6+.

Nice composition. Crisp focus on the eyes. Effective use of narrow depth of field.

The blue cast gives this a cold feeling I don't care for but it is a great tight capture of maternal love.

This will well. Nice tone love the b&W great lighting great portrait
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/02/2006 11:35:29 AM
This photo is fantastic. You couldn't as for a better timed shot and I'm sure this will be framed in your house! I really like the shallow depth of field you've used and the framing is spot on. Great stuff!

I"m not normally into b+w, least of all for baby (and flower) shots, but this looks great. My only complaint is that for THIS CHALLENGE, there should be a bit more emphasis on the mother. Lovely photo, gave you a 9.

Powerful and moving, wonderful composition. Overall a wonderful image!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/02/2006 12:45:07 AM
Really sweet. I think I'd "de-bubble" a bit of the baby's drool though. HEE HEE - cute baby - love the clear sparkle in the eyes. Nicely focused.
