Greetings from the Critique Club!

I think the lighting in this shot is very well done. I like the details being shown in the rose and the profiles. I do believe the mothers face is a bit obscure. Would have liked to have seen just a tad bit more of her, but the hair is very pretty and the flow of the hair and smile give way to the emotional moment.

The expressions are very sweet and the emotional aspects of the photo are quite natural. The little girl looks enthralled by her mom, and the mom in total love of the little girl. Not contrived at all.

The fact that the rose is in color and not the rest is a nice touch, because the rose is not over powering the shot and draws you in to the faces which then makes the photo burst with emotion outward.

A very nice crop. I like that the b/g is white, and all in all the photo is contained very well and fits the challenge nicely.

Great job!

Rose

An intimate moment with great rapport. I would have kept it all b/w or all color. However, the image is moving. Bumping up.

A very wonderful shot. The rose definitely is a plus. Hope this is a keeper for your daughter when she get older. Very nicely done.

The selective desat works, but would have preferred to see more of mom's face. It seems a little cheezy and staged for my taste, but still in the top 1/3rd of the challenge for me. Good job with DOF and keeping the background nice and white.

I like this one, but wish I could see the moms face more like I can see the daughters. I like subdued tones of the rose and your concept.

Wow. I love the rose.

lovely!

Very well done. I love it as is. But I also would like to see this same shot without the rose - maybe to draw the viewer right to mom and daughter. The closeness is captivating.

Selective desat was a nice touch

Nicely done. I wish I could see a tiny bit more of mom's face. I don't mind the selective desat. 7

Would have liked to seen more of the mothers face to balance it, but adorable capture

Wow factor here, in this very moving image. Love how you have taken it in B/W, but with the use of color in the rose. It speaks to you with so much emotion. So beautiful and so deserves a ribbon......

Very nice shot, though I would really prefer to see a little more of the mother's face. The expressions between a mother and child can be very compelling - so, for me, just a teeny bit more of her face would have been nice. I do like the selective desat here, as well as the nice clean background.

One of my favorites. The coloring, the expressions, lighting, framing is all perfect. Love it

would have liked to have seen more of mum's face I think. Hair covers her up too much.

Nice use of colour ... I like this shot ... they look very natural as models for you.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/02/2006 01:10:25 AM
somehow it bothers me that the rose is the only colored item..... the color demands attention where it doesn't belong, the emphasis here needs to be on the on the mother and child. Other than that, it is a lovely photo.

Touching. Beautiful. Would like to see a little more of mom's face, but still one of my top pics.
