    This is one of the few i'm happy with, the only PP i've done is cropped a bit, and think it turned out pretty good, feel free to be critical, I have alot to learn.

    Awww, who can resist a baby's smile!?!? You just cannot go wrong with these lovely faces!

    Lovely reflection in his/her eyes! I like those very much.
    You say you cropped a bit... may I ask you where? For I still feel there is a bit much of the green door on the right, it is interesting in its own and I keep looking at its texture and the nail and the other round little thing on the height of his/her eyes ... you already see: That door invites the viewer to look at it closely and is therefore distracting from this sweet little face.

    But I am not the most knowledgable on portrait photography, so maybe there are others who say the door is just right...!

    What I do think is right are
    - the moment,
    - the light,
    - the skin tones,
    - sharpness,
    - and DOF (depth of field).

    Nicely done, a treasure photo forever. I agree about the green post. Maybe it wouldn't be too bad if it wasn't so close. But good job! Thanks for sharing & welcome to the Forum.

    Thanks for the feedback, I was wondering about the post also because of the texture and grain.Here is the original to have a look at[​IMG]

    For some funny reason I mind the amount of green fence post (or whatever it is) less in the totally uncropped version that its already cropped amount in the cropped version. I don't get why this is so, but my instant reaction to the original photo was that this shows the whole peekaboo-aspect more!

    What do our portrait experts say, I wonder?
    Ever since we have started the People and Pets forum, they no longer come but stay in the Weddings and Portraits forum (more designed for professional photography). A pity.

    FUN! I hope you don't mind... I played around with it :) I'm working on PS right now so I figured I would since it says you don't mind. Not everyone's style... but this is how i LOVE children's portraits. [​IMG]

    not a problem EJBPhoto, did his eyes just come out like that or have you tricked them too?? lol He looks like a little angel, but he's more suited to the devils horns and a 666 tattoo on the back of his neck like Damien
