    I think the faces are better than on your other post... he doesnt look miserable at all here. :) Cute kid.

    I like the first two best, except I'm not sure how I feel about the dark background and the shadow on top of his head.

    The second two could be a little shaper focus on the eyes.

    You son is beautiful...but the "crusty's" in his neck are distracting in picture #1.

    Much better expressions this time! I personally like the surprised looks in #1 and #3 best. (In #1 is that a booger or just a bright spot? In either case, remove it!) The composition is best in #1 and #2; in #1, I would crop some of the rug off the bottom.

    You might want to add a hairlight, particularly when the background is dark.

    Thanks for sharing - he's a cutie!

    yea no boogies it was the light i had a rag tryin to keep the slobber and boogies away. but i guess i forgot to remove the granny beads in his neck. oppz babys have the most odd places to hide things, maybe i should be using my 3 year old to do pictures of shes not as messy lol

    I just used a little eye brighter, softened the focus a little and cropped. Photobucket has some nice beginner tools for stuff like that if you aren't using a PP program. I have no idea your skill level..just trying to help one newbie mom to another :)

    I like these much better! You can really see his personality. I like that he's dressed, the diaper was a bit distracting.
