I think this is a very good baby portrait that is well executed. The colors are not colors that I favor, but you nailed the tones. Before anyone get upset let me say that the colors are just fine...just not colors I like. Anyway there really isn't anything it needs, but if you want to experiement, you can try slightly different crops and a b&w conversion. Below is a quick crude attempt.

Great shot!

Rodney

My only nit is the eyes are at the center of the frame so my attention keeps getting drawn to the forehead. Perhaps a crop with more of the arms moving the eyes higher up in the frame?

Thanks for the input, the colors are not my choice, the baby was sitting on a couch with the purple sheet behind her (not my house) , I just smoothed the wrinkles out of the sheet.

I think the parents will be quite pleased with this shot. Offer them color and b&w proofs. The colors are fine, but if you can alter the background color without detection then I'd try a pale blue. You work very well with children...U have a market!

Hey Julie,

I love the edit. I suggested a change in the background color because I remember you experimenting with that about 3 years ago. Some people may prefer the original, but my favorite is this last edit.

Now, go sell those prints!

I was really going to go full out on this but I held back. Whats your opinion of this version. I wish there were more variety in colors than the pink purple look.
