    All but #4 were taken 20 or more minutes after sunrise. Wish we'd gotten there sooner, but it just didn't happen. It would have made the silhouettes a little better and it threw off the composition in #5. #4 sadly,was taken midday and I can't seem to get the b&w just right. Thanks for looking.

    These are cute:) I actually think I like #4 the best. Gotta love naked babies!
    The only one that bothers me is #3. It seems more snap-shot like than the rest because of the lighting (which you couldn't really control) and because of the tilted lines in the top of the frame. I also don't like how he's placed at the top of the frame like that. Seems there is a lot of dead space below him.
    Both #1 and 2 are adorable. But, that expression in #2 seals the deal for me:)

    His hand shadow in #1 says it all! Thumbs up!! :) #4 is my favorite. I made me laugh out loud. The only one I'm not crazy about is #6. It seems kind of flat. If it had the "oomph" of #5, it would look outstanding.

    Thanks for all your replies. I popped the colors in #6 and it looks better. Also added a few other favs.

    On #3, it was an old lifeguard stand and was crooked I noticed- after I saw the photos. I took several, with him in the center and him at the bottom of the frame, but that expression was the best. I thought those colors stood out on the dull brown/gray gulf coast.

    On #2 above, it pays to shoot continuous. He was giggling and I got 5 fps and it really made a nice series.
