    I love them all. Ýou definitely captured the baby's precious expression at the right moment.


    Is this yours? If not, you're sure to get some money from the parents for this! [H]

    Why thank you,yes, he's ours and we think he's the best thing ever. My main reason for getting my XSi to begin with was to take pics of him.


    I've been waiting for someone to comment on the dual catch lights in his eyes. I'd edit them but they don't bother me enough to fool with it right now. Besides, I have Elements installed on my other computer.

    That's a great shot. I'm worried our boy will grow faster than my skills.

    Well, keep this in mind--years later, it won't matter how good the pictures actually are from a technical standpoint. You'll just be glad you have them...to look at them...and remember. Take as many as you can, as they'll only grow up once. ;-)

    I just love the first one you posted so very much. The expression is what does it for me. Heart warming and cute!


    The lighting in the black and white one bounced aganst the ceiling works really well *and* it creates some very nice catch lights if I may say so.





    Dean, your work almost always amazes me! You rock!

    50mm, f1.8, 1/200, iso 100, EV-1, used B&amp;W with softlight in PS and then masked out the eye color.
