How bad? Not bad at all, I like it.. I'd have no clue where this was at though if it wasn't for your photo title. Seems you intentionally took those and just about everything else out in post though for good reason I'm sure, but if might be nice to have something other than a two-toned rug to tell the viewer where this is taking place.

My 10th month old daughter makes a bee-line for my iphone whenever I leave it where she can get it (and then try to eat it). I can see myself taking a similar shot in the years to come :)

It was under a table that I draped a thick blanket over to make his "cave". I didn't really mean for this to have a black background, but the photo came out looking very near to how it looks now. I just went over the green blanket that was on each side, but everything else was black from shooting into the "cave" with no flash (hence the high-ISO that made this VERY grainy, and the reason for 90% of why it went through PhotoShop).

Over using the Reduce Noise feature can mess up an image by making it look blocky and over sharpened, this was my worry here.

Not too shabby. Some heavy noise in the background around the face, but that could be painted out. The white socks are a little bit distracting. Editing suggestion ...

Needs a caption. "I see dead people"........ Nicely done.


First step........ Take the lens cap off.

The darkness surrounding him doesn't jive with the way he's lit. Meaning, if he's surrounded by darkness, shouldn't his legs be dark, too?

He was sitting under a table, at the edge of it that didnt have a blanket over it, so this is where the light was coming in. The light wasnt just from the iPhone.

Gotcha.. See Peano's edit to better illustrate what I meant.

Do you mean the editing or the changing image?

How you edited it.

Just two adjustment layers. Easier to show than to tell. Here's a link to the PSD file:
