The size of that hand, Dad? You's better hold on to her. She'll be gone soon enough.

Oooooooooo, perfect conflict, especially for parents. I love this idea and the shot is wonderful though a bit too soft for my taste. I like the coloration you did though and the overall composition of the shot. A bit sharper, just a tad and this would have had a 10 from me. As is a 9

I love the concept, could have been implemented a little better though.

The halo of light around the hands seems clearly manipulated in photoshop. I like the soft feeling and the toning. Why would you let her go? She's a baby. You appear to be married... 6

It might be my screen, but the outline around the hand is distracting. The use of sepia works ok.

With just seeing the picture I dont see the conflict but when I read the title a little hint os what is being depicted is becomeing present...Not sure if I like the affect you gave the photo...but is the all and all I found it very creative and enjoyable to look at....

a little too diffused,needs some contrast and saturation

Soft focus gives this a really emotive touch! Well done! Maybe a little more cropped off the bottom to centralise the hands vertically would help. (Long words, now I'm confused!)

too fuzzy

Lighting needs a bit of improvement, but great composition and idea!
