...and I would like to know what you all think of the processing. Please be honest. Thanks for looking! :)

The lady in the background is distracting. I'd crop it different, then give the eyes a bit of pop and I'd like it more.

If the lady in the background is the kid's mom, then I respectfully but totally disagree with the poster above me!

As far as the processing is concerned there seems to be slight blowouts on the babies face. And the eyes could be lightened up a bit. I'd also sharpen the entire image.

Thank you both for your comments. It is the child's mother. I can see how it would be distracting, but I'd like to keep her in since it is her mom. I will work on the eyes a bit.

The original picture was pretty overexposed. I did do some slight USM, but, honestly, I never really know how much to do. I'll give it some more. :) Thank you for your comment!

Here's a re-edited version. I did a touch of dodging and burning on the eyes and a bit more sharpening. What do you think?

I also tried out a different crop. Which do you guys think looks better?

The re-edited version looks great, I don't think it needs to be cropped.
