That's surely a keeper quite representing one's 'babyhood'
My daughter happened to be passing while I was observing this image, and as I expected, she quite liked it ! (Btw, I should say she has a really good taste sometimes irritating me for her quick comments on my images ) You might further blur and/or 'burn' the cloth on the righhandside about the baby's ear, which I find somewhat distracting (hey, that's not my daughter's opinion )

Bahadir, I always value your judgement (and your daughter's as well). What do you think of my edit? Too much? When I was taking this series of pictures I apparently was more concerned with timing than anything else, and you see what happens... Thanks for your kind words above.. Robert

Thank you for the kind credit : ) Actually, applying a black backdrop often makes the subject stand out, and, for a realistic look, softening and smoothing the contours as you seem to have applied especially on the righhandside, works! Alternatively, I thought a background colour to go with the subject's eye would work, and I simply sufficed with applying a heavy lens blur not abstracting the baby from the domestic sphere : )

I like your edit very much, especially the treatment to the left side, which was almost black in the original. I never thought about doing that, so you have shown me something! I continue to watch and learn here, thank you..Robert

Very cute picture, one you will be able to tease her with for years to come.

Glad it worked for you : ) Feel free to send the original also for the post process, or you can also do it on your own, in case you'd like to print it (in A4 size for example), which is highly recommended )
