A photo of my nephew that was shot horizontally. I didn't like the horizontal version to I rotated it 90 degrees counterclockwise and this is what I got.

I like it but IMO I'd like to see a bit more DOF, at least into the near eye.

Agree with NSG40D, just a tad more DOF, looks like the lips are in focus, but we want the near eye at a minimum.

Looks like the focus fell on the lips. May be look for another one.

Shoot it at F8!

I think at least the near eye should be in focus. but I like the lighting. did you soften the skin or is that all just bokeh?

edit: I just noticed you shot at ISO 100 with a 5D. I guess you could easily go up to ISO 800 and get the f8 DOF ItsMike suggested. Sounds like a good idea.

Like it other then the focus, but that already been addressed. Thanks for sharing.

I love it. Technically you could argue about an eye not being in focus, but the picture is intriguing. Wonderful.

regardless of the eyes not being in focus, i think its a beautiful shot. Every part of a baby is so beautiful...so seeing the little lips and nose more in focus is great too!

Hi Guys,

Sorry for the delayed reply. Actually, this was just one shot of a series we did. I focused a very shallow depth of field on each part of Gabriel's tony face.

I liked how this one came out overall, even with the softness of his eyes.

Thanks for all yout comments though. They are appreciated.
