very cute!
03/17/2009 07:58:29 PM
Sweet and gorgeous.
03/17/2009 06:23:09 PM
I like the emotions of this picture
03/17/2009 05:59:22 PM
I love your processing on this awesome image. Definitely a fav.
03/17/2009 03:35:23 PM
This is quite exquisite, the way the baby's been turned into a living cameo by the oval basket/blanket surround. The processing is terrific, and the dead-centered composition works well in this case. Major bump here, because it feels quite original and it's more or less perfectly done on its own terms. Up to a 9 you go!
03/17/2009 10:54:06 AM
Nice baby portrait, I like the darkness of it, it's different.
03/17/2009 08:49:04 AM
Cute and very well composed. Hope is not feeling cold... :-)
03/16/2009 10:57:18 PM
Awwww, so cute! Lovely treatment too. Nice processing.
03/16/2009 10:45:26 PM
Moses? A cutie asleep in a basket.
03/16/2009 10:06:17 PM
This is a great picture!
03/16/2009 09:19:31 PM
Excellent job. Very nice detail.
03/16/2009 08:22:13 PM
not a fan of the exploitive genre, but capture and toning is excellent; square crop look good?
03/16/2009 06:55:28 PM
this is beyond words.... 10
03/16/2009 11:01:22 AM
oh my this is sooo cuuute
seven from me ;D
03/16/2009 09:39:50 AM
The best time of the day when they are sleeping. Nice shot!
03/16/2009 07:58:35 AM
Georgeous baby !
Remarkable shot, very tender and loving.
There's nothing to say about technique, your photo is impeccable.
03/16/2009 07:37:32 AM
Beautiful light and composition. Well done.
03/16/2009 04:52:23 AM
03/16/2009 03:48:10 AM
very nice capture
03/16/2009 02:07:27 AM
cute image, lovely indeed.
03/16/2009 01:17:29 AM
Snug as a bug....Nice shot and well composed.
03/15/2009 11:59:48 PM
I truly dislike this genre of photography ... but this is so good I'll make an exception. Among the best I've seen of photos of this type! And among best in class this challenge.

Awesome concept. Great execution.
03/15/2009 06:11:34 PM
Wow! This shot stops you in your tracks. One of the best in this challenge. Well done!
03/15/2009 04:57:59 PM
What a beauty! So small and sleeping in a basket. Nice with the dark background!
03/15/2009 04:15:05 PM
this is so strong and superb - 10
03/15/2009 03:20:39 PM
Looks like a baby born in the movie "300"
Very cool processing.
03/15/2009 02:39:45 PM
I love this post processing.
03/15/2009 01:59:40 PM
Oooh how sweet! One of my top 3 (10)
03/15/2009 01:45:21 PM
the post processing does work, normally you'd see a shot like this all soft and gentle. I love the contrast you created here
03/15/2009 11:59:54 AM
Wonderful, simply wonderful....
I see the Moses relation, but I am not religious. But as that is a wonderful story, so is this photo.
03/15/2009 11:53:57 AM
The processing creates such an impact on this image.Good stuff!
03/15/2009 09:44:51 AM
My personal nr 1 in this challenge. 10
03/15/2009 08:00:57 AM
One of only three in this large challenge that received a 10 from me. Great subject, beautiful detail and texture and the color is perfect.
03/15/2009 03:52:49 AM
nice , a square crop better IMO to maximize impact , you post processing is excellent, 7
03/15/2009 12:19:21 AM
Unbelievably cute
03/14/2009 10:55:50 PM
I vaguely remember this from a previous challenge. It is adorable and wow.
03/14/2009 09:37:44 PM
Simply Adorable!
03/14/2009 09:17:34 PM
What a bundle of joy!
03/14/2009 07:23:38 PM
03/14/2009 06:33:19 PM
I really like this, different from what other baby shots I have seen before
03/14/2009 05:19:52 PM
Coming back to comment...

So very sweet! Beautiful processing, gorgeous lighting!
03/14/2009 04:19:13 PM
Very sweet. Incredible contrast and composition. The pale color and soft folds of the skin and blanket really complement the dark background. Top 100 :-)
03/14/2009 11:48:30 AM
Wonderful shot. The coloring and composition are prefect.
03/14/2009 11:08:32 AM
you could almost call this "the womb"...very compelling
03/14/2009 06:47:49 AM
This is an interesting image, the desaturation is interestingly patchy - was this done with brush?
03/14/2009 05:59:32 AM
Lovely execution of this Biblical theme. Beautiful. 8
03/14/2009 05:01:39 AM
Excellent! very nicely composed and processed. Really nice baby portrait
03/14/2009 03:44:13 AM
Beautyful picture
03/14/2009 12:55:50 AM
Very nice, I like the earthy tones.
03/13/2009 11:06:12 PM
This is too beautiful for words
03/13/2009 10:51:38 PM
This seems to have a biblical feel...I would have titled it something with "Moses." But whatever the name, it is wonderful!
03/13/2009 10:09:34 PM
Wonderful baby portrait
03/13/2009 08:07:27 PM
great image, may be stealing the idea for future shots :)
03/13/2009 05:07:47 PM
10 10 10 10 10 wish i could give you 50 just love what you have captured, wish you could have made the black into water tho
03/13/2009 04:56:56 PM
Reminds me of Anne Geddes' work. Wonderful post processing.
03/13/2009 03:15:31 PM
very nice. love the variety of textures and the toning.. well executed. 8
03/13/2009 10:25:21 AM
03/13/2009 10:12:53 AM
Very nice story to the pic. It truly is worth a thousands words, good job.
03/13/2009 08:45:41 AM
Aww. Poor thing looks all crunched up. hahaha. Very nice editing tho and great detail. Without the handles it looks like a nest! hahah. A 10 from me.
03/13/2009 06:01:03 AM
Beautiful photo!
03/13/2009 04:53:51 AM
I really like this picture. Great framing of the baby with the basket and blanket. Any mother would be very proud to hang this on their wall. Precious.
03/12/2009 11:46:09 PM
Holy Moses! This could ribbon...
03/12/2009 10:46:58 PM
centered composition works great here
03/12/2009 09:47:54 PM
Beautiful image!
03/12/2009 09:29:35 PM
ah, precious, I love this
03/12/2009 07:10:44 PM
lovely shot, a little too centred for me though. 7
03/12/2009 05:36:14 PM
It's Moses!!
03/12/2009 04:07:41 PM
03/12/2009 02:52:59 PM
Bundle of joy. Enjoy!
03/12/2009 02:47:21 PM
Nice capture. I like the framing.
03/12/2009 02:00:58 PM
Very tender, very beautiful. I like the touches of gold in the handles and the edges of the basket, the yellowish blanket complements that, and the slightly toned baby, perfectly! Both a beautiful memory, and a wonderful picture.
03/12/2009 12:50:26 PM
They are so small when they are young. Very cute photo.
03/12/2009 12:08:39 PM
stunning image ... the pose you've put the baby in is awesome and the processing makes this very powerful ... great shot!
03/12/2009 05:57:17 AM
Oh wow!! I love the desaturated choices.
03/12/2009 01:12:10 AM

darling little one, not crazy about the POV but the idea has potential
03/12/2009 12:24:28 AM
wonderful image, great composition, very nice
03/11/2009 10:57:44 PM
The orange tones on the grey skin was a bit strange for me but otherwise a very cool photo.
03/11/2009 10:36:18 PM
Very strong composition but the colors are really rather disturbing. The child doesn't look like it's doing so hot... too blue.
03/11/2009 10:25:23 PM
oh what a lovely little baby. great select-sat, looks so good. nice angle of the basket as well
03/11/2009 10:22:54 PM
ADORABLE. The centered composition works so well here - maybe it's because of the round basket? The fetal position of the child? It works perfectly.
03/11/2009 09:20:28 PM
This is lovely. Great tones, good composition and such a precious little thing!
03/11/2009 08:30:47 PM
Anne Geddes at DPC?? Just as good as her shots. Really nice!!! Beautiful tones.
03/11/2009 06:39:39 PM
Precious! Very nicely framed with good subtle tones! 9
03/11/2009 06:10:22 PM
Has an almost Anne Geddes quality to it. Great shot.
03/11/2009 05:46:29 PM
nice light
03/11/2009 03:44:18 AM
