Oh, Amelia is BEAUTIFUL! CONGRATULATIONS on the new daughter! And on a photo that will be precious and treasured long after the challenge is a distant memory!

My favorite of the challenge... It's not technically wonderful (but good!)... it just makes me smile. If that other eye were in focus this would be a ten instead of a nine.

I really like it.

Absolutely beautiful baby portrait. Very interested in the lighting - just one umbrella?

It is an amazing picture and child. Just one hint : I would have liked to see the other eye in focus as well, especially because she has wonderful eyes ;)

Adorable blue eyes! This would also be effective on a pink blanket because her eyes are so blue.

Great eyes and good DOF. Maybe a LITTLE more would have gotten other eye in complete focus. Very nice

That almost doesn't look like it's her own foot! Ohm nom, nom, nom!

I think the DOF could have been a bit wider to capture both eyes, but the one that caught the focus is darn near spot on. I do love how soft the chosen aperture left the remainder of the photo. The skin tone and lighting are great.

As for the psychological aspect, I realize Amelia is a girl, but we're brainwashed to associate blue with boys. I wonder if that is going to have any effect on the votes. I'm probably just thinking about it too hard, heh.
