Really like the first one. Second one looks odd, the post processing does not really work for me.

The selective color on 2 and the white vignette on 3 don't work for me. Like a collection of gimmick processing techniques.
1 looks like a BTS of posing a newborn so it doesn't look particularly natural or realistic. 2 looks more natural as far as a photograph goes and is probably the best image of the 3 composition wise.

I think the green nail polish ruins this whole shoot for me. If her nails were not painted, I could live with the hands being in the picture.


Life is hard...but I just take it one photograph at a time.

I agree that the nail polish color was not ideal but it is what she wore that day. It was just meant as a cute pic of Mommy and Daughters cute little feet. One of her friends who is a podiatrist loved the pic so much that she put it on her business flyer. I guess to each his or her own but I do appreciate your comment. Thanks

These all feel like setup shots, rather than finished images. I'm not sure why you desaturate everything but the bed in #2, the subject is the baby but my eye keeps getting drawn to the bed in red. Last one is ruined with the nail polish and vignetting in white.

Like I said, they feel more like setup shots, and not finished pieces.

here's my attempt to critique. so bear with me.

1. Could benefit from multiple exposures and then merging / erasing hands.
2. i feel like the face is a bit soft and the bed is extremely sharp, i feel this is amplified by the color contrast.
3. again great shot, great idea, i feel like if the hands and the feet were seperated from the dress, and perhaps coupled with a backround that played on the color of the nail polish, it would take this to another level.

I can see that. i was just playing with some different black and white ideas. Mom liked it but would probably not do it that way again. Thanks for the feedback.

Was originally going to do that but I like how if feels like Mom is giving that soft loving help to her new baby.
2. i feel like the face is a bit soft and the bed is extremely sharp, i feel this is amplified by the color contrast.
Looking back and hearing the same comments about contrast of color I am kind of agreeing with you. Thanks
3. again great shot, great idea, i feel like if the hands and the feet were seperated from the dress, and perhaps coupled with a backround that played on the color of the nail polish, it would take this to another level.

I like the background color idea. Have realized that some people you will shoot don't put any thought in the appearance of their clothing or makeup when they show up. Need to start really getting specific with instructions pre shoot day. Thanks again,
