Lovely. Not sure I like the crowded left crop, but the emotion more than makes up for it. If matted or framed it would make him handless :raisedbrow:

I think that this framing could be improved.
Everything is in the top left and the father's head is clipped.
I would crop as below to make the baby the obvious center and cut off what doesn't contribute. Then darken all the bright shirts and vignette enough to keep the viewer's eyes in.

maybe even warm it some.

Thanks for the edits! I actually made it warmer like that, and then removed it. lol I think I'll give them a b&w and a warmer version when all is said and done because I do really like it warmed up too.

If these are friends, relatives, give them a canvas print from cgproprints.com.

Relatively inexpensive and will look totally wonderful.

Wow, those prices are great! I've been dragging my feet on getting some canvases made for my own home and scared to order from those places that offer those big discounts and such. Totally bookmarking that one. Thanks!
