I assume the golden look is what he was going for. I think it would work better if her fingers werent OOF and covering her face.

I addressed the white balance in post. Is it not to your artistic liking?

It is definitely gold, but I like it that way. It goes with the glasses and sort of a "rock star" feel. The fingers, as mentioned, are the biggest problem I see. Unless of course you weren't going for that golden tone, in that case you really screwed up bad, lol.

I normally like plot contrast, but...
This is a kid picture that isn't cute. It's a glamour shot that isn't sexy. I find it... troubling & conflicted.
Technically, the background on the right side is blown out, while the rest is viewable. Color is "wrong" but works artistically.

I can appreciate the effort that went into this image, but I don't like it.

I really doubt sexy was the intention. I think it is cute, a baby living the carefree rockstar lifestyle.

Cute! I like the feel of it (the colouring works for me). I know when you're playing around with your kids, you don't necessarily want the prettiest picture, but next time snatch that binky out before you snap! Pic would be 10x better!

I thought the binky added some fun to the photo....

Watermark is distracting, but it adds a professional appearance indeed.

I like the warm treatment in the first one, but I think the out of focus fingers in front of the face
detract from the result. I also like the second one with the natural colour, and I reckon the juxtaposition
of the dummy and the sunglasses works well here. It is a very cute shot.

There are many things I disliked about this photo, hair in front of the glasses, blown right side, etc... But, no hand in front of the face so I whipped up a similar edit for comparison...

and, just to show equal time as a parent, I over edited one of my oldest daughter....
