Me and my daugther. Not exactly what I had in mind, but close... Background would have been different, but due to time had to take this shot on my patio. Obviously when you take a picture of yourself the framing and angles are easy to devert slightly from your original idea. That is the case here.

The caveman concept came from my photo from the Time Capsule challenge. I get such a kick out of this character because it's such a contrast to myself that I'll probably try to bring him back every six months or so for a challenge.

I love the way the baby's head is cocked quizically to the side; good lighting and detail on the clothes; bonus for humor : )

9 - Good photograph. A few technical issues, mainly in the 'hair'. An odd odd couple story.. plus it's interesting, a good capture and has innocence.

Great take on the odd couple theme. The baby looks sufficiently freaked out, but too scared to cry. I really like the monochrome/duotone (or whatever) treatment.

This is so beautiful. The expressions are priceless and the emotion is great. I love the b/w and I think it makes it more appealing. One of my two 10's. :)

LOVE the expression on the baby, looks like they are in a staring contest and she isn´t giving in one bit, that is one determined baby :) Like this picture a lot, something very mystical about it, bumped it up to an 8.

What a wonderful photo! An awesome illustration of an odd couple. I love this one!! The only teeny tiny nit pick I would have is that it would still be plenty odd even if he had a loving look on his face as he looked at the baby, and would have made it cherish forever photo. . .but I love it anyway. 9

LOL thanks for the giggle - I hope baby didn't have nightmares!! Wonderful idea, great take on the challenge topic. I love the POV of this. Not too sure about the composition... I think I would have liked to see the top of his head, too. 8
