I'm having a hard time relating to this image, largely because it has been "smoothed" to the point of oblivion. Notice in particular how there's no trace of detail on the back of the glove, which is too bad because that's the dominant metaphor of the image, what the hand's doing. On the plus side, this is an excellent use of DOF; you have that right on.

Great shot Michelle! Certainly adds perspective to any situation ;)

Jeez...where the heck was everyones Christmas spirit...I thought this was a wonderful shot for the challenge and hit the idea of perspective perfectly (it transported me back to a time when I was 5 years old and I was being told that I had to be good if I wanted presents)

As for the comments about overdoing the NN...Well I think this may be true for a 'normal' portrait but I thought given the subject it added to the slight magical other worldly feel about father christmas

it's a nice photo..very cute. i don't get a strong feeling of any sort of unique perspective, though.

seems you went a little bit overboard with the noiseware. i don't see any kind off creative perspective. seems a bit of a shoe horn to me. sorry to give you a low vote.

Needs better focus and less noise ninja (or neat image)
