Here`s my baby Keean, he`s five months now. My main goal was to capture softness. I`ve sharpen his eyes and edited a little bit of the hair since he started to lose some :)

Greetings from the Critique Club!

Lovely shot, Kimberly-Mai. Great use of the white to offset Keean's colouring, though maybe using a reflector in front of his face would have helped to light him without bleaching out the rug. Crop looks a little tight; the comp is otherwise OK. I'd try doc's suggestion, methinks he knows what he's on about!

Feel free to PM me,

Nice focus on the eyes, could benefit from a tad more curves. Watch out for the white in front, looks somewhat burnt and keep drawing the eye from the model. You could have done a bit more on the eyes eg sharpening and lightning.

As a father just past the first year, I must attest that such a title is grossly misleading :) Expect? HA! expect CHAOS! freakin' wonderful chaos!
