Fantastic finish! You'll nudge up into the ribbons before too long. We might just have to get a big ol' print of this one. :-)

I'm sure you've heard the saying 'Curiosity killed the cat'. What most people don't know is the other half - 'Satisfaction brought him back'. I doubt you need it but I hope you'd be satisfied with a 10.

Great shot. The expressions are captured really well. And the thing I liked the most is that the title is PERFECT :)

Curiosity has more to do with nature than nurture -- at least at this age. Still an excellent capture.

Beautiful lighting. I love the softness of the light and the processing. I also love the deep tones in your conversion. Very nicely done. 9 from me.

Incredible shot. Seriously. I love how the shadows create an L around the baby, really grabs attention to the eyes.

Awwww.....this really shows a curious and energetic personality. Love the shot. I think that perhaps, a bit too much window is shown here and might have been best, cropped a little lower??? Just commenting, not scoring

arrrrr great shot, love the Black and White

This is very nice. I love natural window light, and with the soft baby's face and expression, the mood of this photo is very comforting. Nice choice on the black and white. My only "could have been better" comment would be regarding the space above the subject. Maybe a little tighter crop.

Great work, and good luck!

I love the use of the window for natural light. And quite frankly your model makes this photos work. This is a great shot that any parent would love in their home.
