    I'm still very new to studio photography so I'd appreciate any C&C I can get on lighting, color, etc.

    It looks underexposed...except for the top right corner which is completely blown out...which makes it distracting to the rest of the image.

    For something like this...especially if I didn't have the set up to light it perfectly. I'd use Photoshop to mask of the subject/background and edit them separately.

    The hot spot is gone, that's good. The exposure looks better we well.

    I think it could use a slight bump in contrast though...and maybe some playing with the color balance. The face is looking a tad yellowish, I think.

    I think it's blurry too.

    The second version is a definate improvement on the first. A very nice image.

    It's tough to do much more with one as young as this. I think you handled it well. The foreground troubles me. Maybe a crop?

    Ya, he was less than 2 weeks old so it was hard to get him to even open his eyes. Thanks for the C&C, I kind of like this more as a panoramic now that I saw your edit.
