    I posted this in the People & Pets section of the gallery but didn't receive any critique.

    Thanks for the help,

    It is difficult to really critique BABY-photos.
    What I see here is that there is quite a bit of room above his head, yet his little hand (right arm, front) got cropped off in the middle. A pity.
    And what I personally struggle with is the effect of softbox-reflections in baby's eyes - the catchlight gets sooo large, the eyes begin to look so --- well, what is the word for it? Can't think of any. Eerie of sorts.

    It might as well not even have been a softbox but a large glass shade of the bedroom ceiling light, but whatever it was, I am very distracted by this catchlight in his eyes.

    The white of his suit looks blown, and I think the aperture was a tad too wide open, I would have wished for a BIT more DOF.

    But hey.
    He's yours!
    He's precious.
    He's lovely.

    CONGRATULATIONS!

    Thanks for the comments. I used a flash & bounced it off of the ceiling, but I understand what you are saying. After reading up more on portraits, I agree about the DOF. I had this set at 1.8 and probably should have used 4.

    Thanks again!
