    #1-
    I like it! Cute overall. I would have preferred the Dad's hands to cup the baby's head gently...his fingers are a bit distracting like they are now-just my opinion of course. I still like the photo though.

    #2-
    I really don't care for the edits. Especially the paci being pink. I'd love to see this in pure b&w (or maybe tinted vanilla, even?). Can you post it without the colored rose & paci? Or, if you want to color the rose, maybe not so saturated? A pale pink possibly.:D

    #1 is very sweet.... I just wish dad's hands were cradling the baby's head softly instead of looking tense. I actually wish his whole stance was softer.
    I don't care for selective coloring at all, so the second does nothing for me!
    Although I do love the little hand against the big hand. :)

    #1, any negative I would have has been covered. Now, I like the lighting, there is good separation from his black shirt and the black background. And, it is a nice B&W conversion.

    #2 is a very sweet image. It is a good conversion too. On this one I like that his shirt disappears into the background it fits this shot. I understand why you did selective coloring (although 99% of the time I don't like it) the idea of the pink works to let it be known she is a girl. To me, as it is now the pacifier and the rose pull away your attention from the baby. I think it would be better if you desaturated the pink to a level that you hardly notice it, but you still see that it pink. It may or may not work, just an idea....

    I don't usually like selective colouring but in this case I think it works nicely.

    very nice... how old is the baby? She looks like she's maybe a month old?

    The older the baby, the harder it is, I've learned that lol.

    Try a freshly fed baby, very nice warm room (space heaters even. The baby doesn't care if you sweat) and recently rocked by mommy. Remember, their naked, your not, what's comfortable for you may not be comfortable for them.

    I'm guessing 12-16 weeks based off of skin folds, head control, and ears pierced. She's keeping her head held upright in #1
