    Very nice moment, like a candid. Looks like the little one really is trying to learn what you are doing.

    Thats what I was thinking... awesome shot, good comp and exposure, but that thing on the left is distracting and does nothing to "help" the shot.

    I like... and the blur (door?) on the left adds to the depth of perception here :)

    Thanks for the CC :) The pic is our reflection in a mirror so the dead space to the left is the wall. I cropped it down first without the wall but for some reason I thought the wall made it even more candid and kinda raw looking. I dun know, maybe I am over thinking it but I really appreciate the input!

    I really like this shot and I think keeping the wall in the shot is the way to go.
