    A little more light on the right right hand side you have helped to give the black more deffinition. Everything else in the photo looks really good. What did you use to light this? If strobes were used, where were they positioned?

    Late afternoon sunlight in the park. I probably should have hit it with some fill flash...

    Some fill would have done wonders to bring out the detail in that black. A little off camera fill flash to the camera right, or just a reflector if you wanted to keep it totaly ambiant...

    The girl does not look at all happy about her impending bundle of joy. Need to post some stuff of her actually being happy.

    agian with a little light on just the black shirt you would have more details. The pose on the second one doesn't really platter her, I would have changed that. Other than that the others look good. JD is right about her not looking happy, but nothing you can do about that. My wife was misrable when she was pregnant with our twins.

    I'd bin the first two as they show nothing of her condition, I'd also work on your communication skills and learn how to crack the odd funny line, she looks teed off. H

    Your profile says that's it's ok to edit your stuff, so I thought you might like to take a look at what I did with it. I brought back the shirt. I can bring it back more, but I thought this had a nice look to it...

    It could probably use a little touchup over on the left of the belly. I didn't do anything to it, but it almost looks like clone stamp circles there...
