    You've got smudges or dust. The pinks are too pink. I'd pick a different background. Love the b/w. That's excellent.

    Now that you mention it, I see the dust in the corner of the pinks.. I think the paper would look better with better lighting, but that was all that was handy. Thanks on the b&w!

    I really like the first. You can get rid of the excess red and the dust spots in post processing. I love your idea in the second. Unfortunately, newborns have better expressions when they're sleeping. Babies around 3 months are great because they will often smile and they can be propped up a little more.

    I love the baby's hair! Both my kids had lots of hair, though my son's hair fell out and he was almost bald for a while.

    On my monitor (I say that because I'm on a work laptop which is crap) the first two look a tad underexposed. Not bad...but just enough to think "these are a little dark". The B&W is cool, whats the original look like?

    I'll play some more with adjusting the pinks and see what happens.

    Heya hatteras, welcome to ThePhotoForum.

    Though you may be a beginner to visiting our forums, you are very welcome to post all the photos you want to show to our galleries.

    Ask any question you might have, assuming you are a beginner to photography as such, in The Beginners Place. OK? I moved your thread for you.

    And that baby looks .................. frozen.

    The first two are definitely a bit underexposed. Newborns are best done during the first 2 weeks when they are still easy to "curl up" and pose! I actually like the yawny" one, though!

    New born skins are really hard to get right in terms of colouring that is why so many newborn pics are b&w. I think that first one might look nice in b&w.

    I don't like the second one. She looks uncomfortable. Also it looks like the focus might have fell on the basket and not on the baby?
