Shot of my nephew back in August. He wouldn't sit on the set at all and kept crawling to a sink I had laying around (house under renovation).

I got fed up with this and just placed the sink on the set and stuck him in it. Got a great capture.

I agree with the dark comments, I mistakenly just uploaded one of my print versions, since my monitor and printer aren't calibrated, i just used a pre-saved curves and then print. Thanks for the comments everyone.

I kind of like the low key look.

Very cute baby in a great pose. Not fond of the wrinkles readily apparent in the background, nor of the way the tub slides out of frame. But your focus and toning are spot on for the subject, and those are difficult enough to achieve in and of themselves. 6

a bit more processing might have helped. I like the shot but it's missing some "oomph"

Lovely light, and soft textures in this shot! Also the model looks very relaxed. Well done!

<Refreshingly different from usual child pics, where the lights are just gleaming. This presents a more natural tender look> 9.
