This is my six month old niece. I took this photo in my brothers living room while trying to keep my four year old nephew from walking in front of the camera to eat the popcorn. I used regular house lights with this.

Sorry to see your DQ. But good to get it over with early in your DPC career. Welcome to DPC and hope to see more of your work. You're gonna love that Sigma 100mm with the D40.
Very cute baby!

The distortion of the baby's head is very disconcerting. Otherwise, this is a cute idea and nicely posed.

Very cute idea (and baby). I just wish it were a little more level and maybe a different background (something with a solid color).

Baby's face looks like the photo was resized too, too much. Cute photo although it the child had popcorn in it lap it would have carried over to the popcorn on the floor. Nice eye glint!

Very cute, but watch your ratio when you resize. This image looks horizontally squashed.

Wow, what a weird perspective on baby! A crop from a wide angle? Seems happy and cute!

Adorable idea, but it looks like you resized without maintaing the same proportions as the larger image so the baby's head looks stretched upwards (or compressed sideways). Also, I would crop so the baby wasn't quite so centered and leave a bit more headroom.

This looks squeezed or something? Aren't baby's heads supposed to be approximately round? This looks very unnatural.

So cute!

i like the idea but there is something very odd about the image - as if the subject is skewed in some way - a superwide angle lens? - an odd cropping job?

Cute baby!!

Very cute; but isn't the image stretched vertically?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

ok, the concept is great, BUT did you resize the image? the baby's face looks disorted- looks like if you pulled the image from the top

Something went seriously wrong with the resizing here, I think. It feels wrong, like you resized horizontally more than you did vertically?

Cute picture, but looks a little distorted on my screen...

Was the baby really in the pot? It looks a little distorted to me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

The proportion of the photo looks like it was squeezed together. That and the baby looks like a cutout.

What a cutie, but she seems distorted, kind of squished inward.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This shot looks distorted!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/07/2007 04:52:23 AM
stretching is bad for the picture, while the subject is finny
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/07/2007 04:52:11 AM
I think you will be dqed as you can't stretch your image...oops

cute kid... but a truly awful picture IMHO. She is out of focus and seems unnaturally distorted the baseboard has stains. Just not attractive
