    I can see why your client likes this picture, but agree with pp. Can you possibly post the sooc? I wonder how that photo would look with more of a vanilla bw instead...? I'd clone out the black part of her shirt (?) there on the left side. It sticks out to me a bit. Love those eyes, that's the dark part of the picture I want to be drawn to.

    I just wanna hold that lil baby!

    Beautiful picture! I ditto trying a more vanilla bw instead. I tend to steer towards bright pictures myself, so it doesn't really bother me, but that's just me.

    Hmmm, it's looking kind-of rosey to me, but I'm on my uncalibrated monitor at work. Agree it is a little bright too.

    I think the way the baby's chin is up and the neck is stretched a little makes it kind of awkward. But that doesn't matter if the parents love it. I played with it, and I forgot to mask back the blanket in the color one, so it's blown...but you get the idea.

    LOVE Erica's b&w! The babe looks red in the pic though...I know it's hard with newborns.

    Here is my play. Have to be honest...it was quite a bit of work. Mostly it entailed removing red and restoring the color balance. I used almost every color tool available in photoshop to delicately reduce red while trying to not completely destroy skin tone.

    I also used a skin smoothing action from one of the Totally Rad action mixes called Pro Retouch.



    and then I turned that into a chocolate bw using the action that Molly posted a long time ago:
