Great picture. One that a mother can treasure forever.
So cute! Lovely rendering of a child.
The block of stone at top left distracts me a bit, (using 20/20 hindsight) I'd have avoided it.
Apart from that nitpicky thing ... I think that it's great! I'd kill to be able to get a shot like that of any of my grandkids.
Fine shot. Just a nit, I'd like to see a wee bit less wall. I'd move the crop just a little to the right.
yea I was feelin the same way, just couldn't find a way to express it. nce shot though!
Thoughts on this portrait?

Cute. I liked this photo yesterday when it was posted, just as much as I do today in this new thread!
Omg, I forgot I posted it- lol. I never checked back! I'll delete this one
I don't mean this as a specific comment on this photograph, but this whole style of ultra-shallow depth of field creeps me out.
It's like there's a soft fuzzy out of focus world out there, made of creamy buttery bokeh or whatever, and then, suddenly, LURCHING OUT OF THE MIST there comes this little CHILD with soft perfect skin and glittering shiny eyes and hair so sharp - at least in the plane of focus - I could use it to garrote a parrot. AIG I say, a SMALL CHILD. AIG.
Partly it's just using a good lens cranked way open. Partly I feel like it's a fairly heavy application of sharpening or "clarity" or whatever -- something that increases local contrast in some fashion. Is there some sort of ghastly "child portrait" preset or action that everyone is using these days to make all the kids look terrifying?
I love it!
Very nice ...crop a little tighter....tones are very good. very cute picture
I thought they had outlawed opium in Virginia like a hundred years ago?

Sorry my beautiful (if i do say so myself) child terrifies you and my creamy bokeh creeps you out I guess I won't be deleting this duplicate post after all.
I was being hyperbolic to make a point, your child does not actually terrify me
Hopefully the point came across?
Thanks y'all! It could benefit from a tighter crop, thanks for the suggestion!
