I had some reservation about submitting such an intimate shot for this challenge but I didn't have enough time to chicken out considering it was shot at 11:10pm.

I went away on Thursday for the weekend and didn't have any net access until late yesterday. The whole time I was wondering if the score would drop but I'm really happy that this ended up in the top 20 - thanks so much to everyone for such kind comments and generous votes :)

congratulations with the baby-to-come! a nice low key photo, the light on the background is sweet, but it seems like you had to brighten it up too much (on your belly you can see that)

I love this. I think pregnancy is the most beautiful thing ever.

Lovely shot. With the advanced editing allowed, I might have cloned out or burned out whatever that is in the lower right hand side of the frame. Otherwise, very well done!

I like this concept, although I wish there were just a tad bit more of light, especially since that is your title (although I get the double meaning too, which I like). Good job, and congratulations

Very nice light, looks like you haven´t much more time to wait for your baby...tender shot..

Taking advantage of the max allowed filesize (150kb) would have helped this awesome shot not look so boxy in places.
Love the lighting.

Now this is so "awesome".....
My daughter-in-law is having our first grandchild early next year, and I love to have a shot like this of her and our unborn grandchild, to keep forever.....
Love the lighting here, and I also love the imgage..... It's a "9" from me.
