I've just recently taken pictures of the daughter of a friend to give her as a present for the 1st Birthday of the little one. But I don't feel they have very much of an artistic value. They seem so... flat? Like I haven't managed to capture much of the baby-girls "spirit" or character. I don't know. I thought I'd share and ask what you think before making one of it a present. 1. Here she is inside a playhouse at a playground. Unfortunately there were graffitos all over the place. Do you think they ruin the picture? 2. I quite like this one I took of her in the baby-swing, but I feel that there is too much of her red sleeve in the picture. Does it draw the eye too much? 3. Here she is with her bottle. Does this picture work at all or is the bottle nothing but distracting? I thought the water looked interesting, but what do I know, since I'm nothing but a hobbyist... 4. In this picture I tried to include her favorite doll (the thing at the left corner) but she just dragged it along (upside-down, of course ), thus I never quite managed to get a decent shot with baby and doll together. Thanks a lot for looking. Let me know what you think, please, if you'd like.
