A great pose, I like the black background and the lighting is nice and soft.

Interesting choice of what appears to be two men holding the baby. I would have expected a man and a woman. Thought provoking.

Lovely, and a keeper for the future. She'll certainly love this even more when she becomes a mom. 9

What a cutie! Great lighting. and cute pose.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Not sure about the two men holding up the baby. Man and woman would be more traditional, since two men can't produce a child *grin*. Good job on the lighting and focus, though.

Voted earlier coming back to leave comments now. This is a really cute photo of this young baby! The two sets of hands holding her up and her pose to reach for the sky (and stars mayhap;-) ) invokes the scene in the Lion King when Simba was raised up for all to see. Judging from the title that is the imagery you wished to emulate and it comes across very well.

Adorable! Very cute baby and a beautiful photo!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Don't assume that because you have an affinity for your subject, the rest of the world will too. Otherwise, a good workmanlike photo.
03/16/2009 03:35:42 AM
Nice shot. Would have looked more natural with mum's hand at one end.

great light - wish to see a pair of female hands too
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 09:57:27 AM
A little dough ball. Very cute. Great lighting. The fact that it's two sets of male hands in intriguing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2009 09:43:27 AM
I prefer this to the usual version with new newborns - I like the way there is an element of interaction from the baby. The idea of offering up the baby as a gift comes over, especially with the baby who appears to be reaching up in an almosr religious way to some higher being. Bumping to 9.

03/13/2009 10:21:31 PM
ok, that is 2 men holding the baby...or the woman has very "hairy arms" and large hands good focus...nice detail...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 06:17:36 PM
Nice shot, and an interesting twist on a classic.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Intriguing photo. Having two men hold the baby is a twist on what might otherwise be a photographic cliché. Love the lighting, as well.

The earring is kind of bothering me. Not that I have any problem with babies having pierced ears; Its just distracting to me in this shot.

Terrific lighting, and a very ncie dark background, but the posing and composition feels awkward to me.

Darling! Would have been better in black and white to me and needs a little more light or contrast but its still precious.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2009 10:48:24 AM
I love it that it looks like 2 men are holding the baby instead of a woman. I don't know why, but that touches and moves me for some reason. That chubby little doll baby is PRECIOUS!

nice picture, but having two sets of male hairy hands is a little distracting to me :)
