    Yep, I agree. Nice job.

    The only one that irks me is the before last one and the fact that the mother is not in focus, probably due to the DOF choice. If she wasn't looking at the camera, might be better, but the fact that she is looking straight at the camera kinda ruins the DOF choice for me

    ok, well thanks
    ya, i wasn't sure about that one
    but i decided that i liked that she was slightly out of focus because it brings the baby more in focus and gives him more attention
    but yes, i agree and it was a dof issue that was annoying
    booooo
    thanks though!

    For the most part I think they are good and I'm sure the parents will love them.

    The collage idea is really nice, even though there are some hot spots on baby's face and ear (were you using flash?) I still think overall it's one that the parents will adore.

    I'm not crazy about the one with the baby on the ground, to me it feels like he is just part of the mess of the toys and it almost has a sad feel to it (IMO).

    Also the one with Mom out of focus, I probably wouldn't give them that one.

    For your first time I think you did a good job though! :)

    Well that's just me, someone else may love it. I get what you were going for with the idea, but usually I'm not a fan of baby on the ground photos. I think it's hard to pull off without looking like an abandoned baby.

    i dunno anything about baby photography, but if it was me, i would have taken care of the veins on the head. those are making me a little nervous.

    I actually like the one on the ground.
    If the baby would of been positioned in a way to be more part of the heart line, that might of worked better. But as is, I like it!
