#6 is my favorite of the bunch. So cute! I'm not a fan of these conversions. There is quite a bit more brown in them than I like and they lack a little contrast. The combination of the two things makes them look a touch muddy to me.

Were you asking for c/c?

OMGosh, why is the cord clip still on? Shouldn't it be off?

#1 - I'd clone out the cord clip poking out.
#3 - Cute comp, very creative - his arm, shoulder and cheek are blown.
#4 - I'm unsure about the dark area on the bottom left... is this a vignette or ??
I like the apples, cute.

I agree with Amber about the conversions, look muddy and a bit flat to me.

Sure, CC is always good!

I wondered the same thing about the clip....but the mom says the doc never said to take it off...i have no idea.
#3...i know is blown...but mom really wants it anyway...the sun popped into the room really strong for a few short minutes and i didn't adjust SS
#4 ..is a vignetting

I'm looking at the conversions after Amber mentioned...but i don't find them muddy...i'll try to add a little less brown and see ...posted them on ilp as well to see if they find them muddy or not.

Cute!! I love #6 as well, great idea!
I'm not too crazy about the conversions, but I think that's a personal taste. #7 looks like it could be straightened a little. I know the pad was probably at an angle like that, but it might give it a more finished look.
Also, just a tip I've picked up...it looks ike the light is coming up the baby's body instead of falling from the head down. Like his bum is facing the light source. It's usually more pleasing if the baby's head is facing the light and is at an angle (so not parallel to the window/flash). That way, the shadows are softer around the face, but enough to show detail of the face. If you look at #4, you have his head and the brother's face toward the light...that is a very pleasing look there, and it brings more attention to the facial features. But then with #5, he's turned the other way, so the side of his face is very shadowed, but his feet and tummy are lit, so my attention goes there.
I hope that make sense! It's still early for me. Smile
Over all, I'm sure mom will love them! What a beautiful family!
