Yup. Just practicing and practicing on my nephew. I think I might have solved my WB issue. Definitely helps having more natural light. Please CC everything. I need all the CC I can get Smile

Thanks!

f3.5, ss 1/80 ISO 1250

Edited closer crop and tried to get rid of the yellow hairline, is this better?

He is a cutie! The picture is darling.

As far as cc, I think the comp would have been stronger if he were looking at the camera instead of to the right. The color looks a tad yellow to me but I need to recalibrate so take that with a grain of salt. I'm not really liking the crop. It cuts him off at one knee and you can see part of one shoe.

What a cutie! I'm seeing a touch of yellow too around the hairline, but not bad. (I'm calibrated).

Gorgeous shot El! Skin tone looks great in this one. I don't mind too much that he's not looking at the camera. I think the eyes have nice light and depth.

I like the second crop much better. I think I still see a bit of yellow in his left (our right) sideburn. And, it's probably because of web, but is he a little soft? Hard to say. Did you sharpen for web?

Beautiful shot!

Really nice! The only thing I'm noticing is a little grain.

I bet his mom hears all the time, "what a pretty little girl" I used to hear that all the time with Matty. He is a really pretty baby! Love the expression!
