    Well my wife's best friend had her baby yesterday and she is already home doing well. I just got my new Canon 40D and I took it straight to her house to see what I could do with it. I am still learning the camera and the lighting was difficult to deal with in their house but either way, let me know what you think.

    What a cute chubby face!!
    For me the image doesn't quite work for a few reasons.
    1. I would probably recompose this pic to either lose some of the space at the top of the head and make it more of a close up or angle your camera down a bit more to make it a 3/4 length shot, it is kind of in the middle.
    2. I don't know how fast your lens is but I would have it open as wide as it can go and then pick a shutter speed that lets you still hand hold without camera shake issues, no slower than 1/50 sec at the MOST! (I'm sure you probably did this)
    3. Then when you take this image to photoshop you need to bring your levels up and maybe add a bit of contrast with your curves,there is a lot more you can do but this is a good place to start; it is a bit too muddy and grey for me, but you are on the right track.
    I hope you don't mind my critique and remember this is only my opinion. thanks for posting I look forward to your next post. :lovey:

    If anything, I APPRECIATE your critique! I am new to photography (2-3 months) so I know most of my replies will be constructive.

    Thanks!
