I know every parent thinks their baby is the cutest, but c'mon now... you can't deny that Danika is just about as cute as they come! This is her 6 month old Xmas portrait.
Minor post processing: curves, feathered vignette and teeny bit of dodge on the eyes

Hilarious expression, adorable little baby as well, great lighting and nice job with the background, should've scored a 6 i think.

Beatiful eyes and expression, but it is very soft for DPC standards.

Beautiful eyes. The soft effect kind of reminds me of old wedding albums of the 70s/80s. Not sure if that is a good thing. I think the exposure is terrific. Curious what this would look straight out of the camera without the vignette. Adorable child and a picture to remember.

I loved this shot ... it was one of my 10s. The funny expression on her face just makes the shot, and the processing nicely accentuates the overall feel of the image. I was one of your two 10s. I could easily see this on one of those funny, arty greeting cards.

She looks like she's up to mischief to me ;-)

She is precious!! I LOVE the expression she gave you & that hat is the cutest!

I do think this face is pricless
A good capture good timing good lighting
There is a certain softness to the pic, definetly a litte more sharpness to the eys would have helped
I realy do not think you did bad at all with this
I lack photoshop skilles some have in here but am trying to learn more I think with a little more time on this you could realy present it better

now thats a face.

Nice lighting.

Ah... Santa for 2008! They grow fast don't they :P Very nice baby portrait. i think my only concern here is the focusing. If those eyes would be shiny as glass, and bit less light, and a bit darker framing around... I can see it, much better points :)
