Since my daughter was born, I've been working pretty hard to get better at my photography. Here are some of my favorites from the past few months. I would love to get some comments/critiques. I feel that I've learned a lot so far, but I'm looking to improve as much as I can.

I have been lurking on these forums and have learned a lot from you guys. Thanks!

I LOVE #4. That is so cute. I would have that huge on my wall. She is adorable, keep up the good work.

Really like 4 and 5... She has some very blue eyes... very nice shots.

Wow! #5 is amazing! I'd clone out the top left corner and it'd be perfect and framed! Which lens did you use in that one if I may ask?

#5 is an absolute stunner. I wish I was half as good as you are! All of them are lovely but, as everyone's said, 5 is something special.

Thanks for all of the nice comments! I need to be honest about picture #5. I was holding the camera out in front of me, not looking through the viewfinder. I snapped about 10 pictures and only one was focused on her eyes. The one you see here. My wife gets frustrated that I may sometimes take 200 shots in one evening. But that is why I do it.

I used my Canon 60mm macro. That's why her eyes are so sharp. And because the distance to her was so close it gives a very shallow depth of field. She was sitting on our bed and I bounced my flash off of the wall/ceiling. Thanks again for the comments.

If I get this picture printed I will clone out the upper corner. That's a good suggestion.
