    I love them - the color is soft which is nice for the mood. Lighting is nice, especially given that they appear to be in the hospital, which normally have hideous lighting. Baby's eyes are sharp - great capture on 3...I know it's hard to catch them alert like that. On #1 I don't normally love up-the-nose shots but I can totally overlook that with that lovely little mouth.

    Are congratulation in order?

    Yep, she's mine!! The first one is from the hospital, the other 2 are at home. These are the 3 (out of about 700, lol) That I think I want to use for the Birth announcements.

    Congratulation, then! The scale threw me off on the setting. Good job on the baby and the shots.



    ETA - I just enbiggened #3 and per Lipoly, it does look like the hair is sharp as a tack but the eyes are not *quite* there. I might give them a leeetle sharpening, but they don't need much. The fact that you got open eyes at all is quite a feat.

    Congrats!

    I like 1 & 2, but 3 looks a tad soft...like focus was missed or had a bit of camera shake...background could be improved also.

    I did very minor pp with camera raw... how would I just sharpen her eyes? with Photoshop? I have access to cs5, although I am still using PS7 at home.

    BTW These were shot with a d90 and a 50mm f1.4.

    LOL... congrats on both!

    I like the first one the most, but I think it could use a little post processing to make it pop even more.
