    I love babies!!! My most favorite subjects to shoot.

    Here are a few shots from this past weekend, hope you enjoy. I considered cleaning up the baby's face in #3, but that's what babies do so I figured it was better to leave the debris. :lol:

    1) Laughter is the best medicine

    I can't help but feel sorry for #3, WHAT DID YOU DO TO THE POOR CHILD?

    LOL... I thought it would be a while before I had to defend myself. I didn't do ANYTHING, but his toy stealing sister did. I was in the right place at the right time with my camera and I shot him getting mad at her... was a lucky break. (normally when I hear crying I lose the camera) ;)

    I'm happy with the result. If one of my shots envokes an emotion inside of the viewer I've accomplished something.

    Definitely don't like the selective color. Very nice shots though.

    I'm not usually a fan of selective coloring... but whatever the people with the money want right? Here is my favorite of the series without the color wash... I think it's better but the customer is always right... blah blah blah :mrgreen:

    I don't mind selective colouring if you select the right areas to have in colour. Image 2 for example is superb. I absolutely love it.
    The other 2 images just look a bit strange to me with the hair coloured against the b&w facial features.

    I'm also not a fan of the selective coloring...by leaving the child's face without color, it makes him look lifeless...like a creepy doll or something. But as you said...the customer is always right.

    Instead of removing the color completely try desaturating it by about half,, You might like the results
