Greetings from the Critique Club...

Hi Robro...

My original comment on this photo sums up my overall opinion of it pretty concicely. That quote from Paul Strand that I included in my comment holds a lot of merit for anyone who is taking photos of people for any reason. Portrait photos for personal use can be absolutely anything you want them to be. You don't have to worry about what people think of them. However, when you are planning to display the portrait to anyone who does not have some association with the subject, you need a catch to draw them in.

A bit out of focus, and the light on the face is a tad too bright.

What beautiful blue eyes. This image really captures the essence of childhood. It's a great shot. My only suggestion would be to do some processing work in PhotoShop around the colours. For some reason, the baby's face picked up a bit of the blue of the outfit. Maybe playing with the channels and the contrast would help it a bit. Gotta love that soft baby skin.

"It is easy to make a picture of someone and call it a portrait. The difficulty lies in making a picture that makes the viewer care about a stranger." - Paul Strand"

It's a cute baby, but what differentiates this portrait from any other family album shot I would expect to see?

The lighting is not very kind to the child and a little out of focus.

And a musical note she is! Pretty blue eyes. BOL Would have liked to see the full head.

My baby (my entry, too) is 10 months. I'm going to vote up because your kid is very cute.

Awesome blue eye. Focus is soft and wee need to see this cutie pie sharp and crisp.

They grow up so quickly - this is definitely one to keep and treasure.
