Nice soft lighting works well with this subject. Shadows are a little dark and could use a bit more fill light especially around the baby's mouth. That might be a bit nitpicky though. (Good idea with using foil as a reflector btw)

Terrific focus on the lashes. Good use of depth of field to really bring the eye to the lashes as well.

Interesting composition. Again - it really draws the eye to the lashes.

The challenge: I have to admit that the eyelashes don't say silky to me (at least in my opinion). However, the overall image does say smooth to me. The whole mood of the piece is very peaceful which accentuates the "smooth" feeling of the picture.

Overall: Excellent job. Good subject choice and well handled technicals.


Thanks Citadel for your critique, your time is highly appreciated, Regards,

Very nice picture nice play with sharpness and unsharp depth. I Like this one, very eye catching.

Works very well for me. I like it. Simple composition. Nice use of DOF. Well focused but not oversharpened. The blurred lines of the background add a nice element to this, yet I keep coming back to the featured subject after roaming. Well done. Good luck in the challenge.

Beautiful. I expected to see lots of baby skin, but you've turned the tables by concentrating on the silky eyelashes. Terrific lighting and depth of field -- I love being able to see the downy hairs on the nose. Sweet. Good luck!

I love this perspective. (and I'm envious of the lashes!!!)

The eyelashes are amaaaaazing - sharp, textured and well lit. I might have considered other angles and composition options for the photo though - I like the choice of including the arm in the photo, however I think there's too much chest in the photo - it reads as a solid surface and one which competes for attention with the subject of the photo.
