Haven't posted for CC in such a long time

What do you think? CC on lighting, PP, posing, etc. anything at all! I've been very busy with shoots - I'm still skill building and not charging clients and I think I'm starting to get a better. I'd be interested in hearing what you guys think.

Oops forgot the settings

f/5.6
1/30
ISO 500
45 mm

Thanks,

Ditto.. the background is distracting. Otherwise, great shot!

VERY NICE! I agree w/ pp that the background is a little distracting. I think, for me at least, what I find most distracting is the bit of black above left of the hat (our left). I think if you cloned in the couch on that bit, it wouldn't be nearly as noticable.

Focus and exposure look dead on! I'm at work, so I can't comment on color (dang monitor). I love the composition. It's very sweet and were I the mom, I'd want a BIG copy of it in my home. Smile Oh ... and that hat is really sweet ... did you or mom provide?

TFS,

It's a nice picture but I must agree that the background takes away the focus from the baby. The crack on the couch reminds me of a "butt crack" lol. I would clone that out and the black part on top of the baby for a cleaner background.

Thanks for the comments everyone! I've been working on cloning out the couch, I hate it too! I appreciate all you helpful CC!

My mom made the hat for me. She's made all kids of hats, cocoons, blankets, booties, etc. I'm so grateful for her! Smile

I agree about the background difference being distracting. Other than that, it looks great Smile
