Thanks everyone for your comments. I'm very happy that my "family" shot scored so high. I took these for a baby shower invitation. Here is the original unedited:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/65000-69999/68256/120/564376.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/65000-69999/68256/120/564376.jpg', '/') + 1) . '
I wanted to submit this version, but was afraid people would vote down because of Mary's face so I cropped more:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/65000-69999/68256/120/558650.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/65000-69999/68256/120/558650.jpg', '/') + 1) . '
And one without Mary peaking at all...

Great picture! Love the feeling.

Make me think of when my sister was pregnant, everybody was so excited when it was the first baby in our generation. But how sad as it is she had a miscarriage in her six month.
I feel really touched by this image, great work! :)

She loves children and is sharing the newcomer-to-be with her current loves.

while I like this shot, I am not too sure what emotion you are trying to show
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very cool. 7

beautiful shot! good work!

I would call this "expectation"...extreme emotion seems a little harsh.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/30/2007 10:21:14 PM
Beautiful message and very nice capture of the child on the left.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/30/2007 08:07:11 PM
Even as a male, I can relate to the excitement of the little ones and the pregnant mom! Great shot...one of the best.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/30/2007 07:23:25 PM
A truly amazing shot!! The lighting and idea are brilliant! This gets a fave from me, and I'd bet it ribbons too!

Outstanding skin tones and composition. 10 from me!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/30/2007 02:22:30 PM
Delightful! Although I must admit the man's hands threw me off for a second - the way they are placed I expected to see the woman's hands instead.

Should do well with this (I hope). :D Good luck!

Excellent!

Unique concept, great story. (The poor kid in there)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/28/2007 03:07:43 PM
great b&w!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/28/2007 01:06:06 PM
It is a nice image and I like the one kid on the left looking. But, I believe this is only an extreme emotion to a very small group of people. Not everyone can relate to this image and for me it just isn't enough.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/28/2007 07:10:15 AM
hope happiness - lovely
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/28/2007 03:51:17 AM
You have managed to capture the wonders of childhood with great emotion.

How beautiful....I love this...10

07/27/2007 06:20:41 PM
i wish the one face wasn't there, but otherwise very nice
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/27/2007 06:02:18 PM
I like the eagerness displayed by all those reaching arms, and how you draw out several connotations of "expectation" in this image. The sly eye on the left is icing on the cake.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/27/2007 04:09:36 PM
too cute!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/27/2007 02:49:22 PM
Awesome! Perfect example of faceless emotion and most fitting title. 9.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/27/2007 12:05:16 PM
Excellent! Subject shows emotion very well. Image is well balanced and your choice of black and white does well for this shot. The little girl(?) looking at the camera really adds to this photo.

Wonderfully Intimate and Inspiring, Thank You
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/26/2007 01:09:38 PM
Nice photos, not very extreme emotions though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/26/2007 01:04:40 AM
I really like that you showed just one half of one of the children's face. You showed great restraint (I have no way of knowing, but it might have been tempting to show more of the face or more faces) and it works so well. Her eyes convey enough for everyone.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/25/2007 11:28:33 PM
Very nice idea! I like the B&W tones and composition, too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/25/2007 09:16:31 PM

Hasn't she had enough already!? :-P

Love the b+w... the kid at the left draws my attention to the presence of the photographer, which is a shame though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/25/2007 02:56:06 PM
I love this photo, it really does express great emotions. I'm putting it in my favorites. Well done!

07/25/2007 11:40:51 AM
love this - the family portait. my favorite part is the face of the little one on the left - great touch!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/25/2007 08:15:06 AM
Aww...you have one kid who just couldn't resist looking at the camera...lol. I really like the photo. Although I am slightly confused and I really hope not to offend anyone, but the arm with the ring on it, looks like it would be coming from the expecting mother...but it looks like a man's arm. The crop might just be slightly too tight.
