Default New addition to the hive C&C please

This is my second attempt with a newborn. The family raises honey bees so I couldn't resist the hat and diaper cover I found on Etsy. Unfortunatly baby slept for 4 hours before session so he was an angry little bee.

The processing is a little flat - feels like it needs more contrast and brightness? It also distracts me that the dresser is slanted.

I couldn't properly explain myself so I just did that roughly to show you what I mean.
Like lookingforaname said, the box needs to be straightened. A bit of colour pop would work nicely, I raised the saturation of the red levels to bring out the babies skin more, and the yellow and green to give it a nice pop.
It might not be the look you are going for but it will help the image out. Also I found the dark vingetting a little distracting

Suc ha cute photo though, and you did a very good job for a cranky baby!

Sorry for the delayed repsone. My Computer got a bug thanks to my son downlaoding music but I am up and running again. Thanks for you input. She brought Jax back for a makeup shoot and he was much happier this time. Here are a few from the second shoot.

The re-shoot is better but the baby is too dark. I played a little with it....not sure it is exactly what I was looking for.
