Award Shortlist   

From Now Untill Forever

By Ridgeway
A good mate of mine from work asked me to take a few shots of their new arrival Johnathan.
I always had this in mind for my new niece and her parents but with her living in Co,Sligo it hasn't happened yet.
Anyway I am glad that this went so well,
Have a look and see what you think,,
I was trying to portray the protection,love and support that a parent gives to their child,from this stage and all the trials and tribulations that will come their way,,
Thinking of you Aoife,


Thanks For Your Time And Interest In What I have Seen,

Cracking image Aidan!

Not sure about the ripple effect though? .....saying that, it's a fantastic idea. Well Done.

A lovely shot, very emotional! Ditch the riple effect and perhaps apply a little soft focus and i think you would have a classic here! (but thats just my opinion!)

I love the original shot, and you've improved the light in V1. But I don't care for the manipulation, that looks like the teeth of a saw running along the top of the hands!

Like 1 the best cos there's no texture in the fabric which is a bit distracting. Don't mind the ripples-it's kind of different. Wonderful shot and such detail in the skin. The hands are well positioned (pose?). Like it a lot. Paul

V2 for me, as I am not too taken by the ripple effect of V1 though I think the light in it is better. Lovely sentiment and sure the family will love this.

Very much agree with this! Beautiful photo though. V2 is a little dark looking but could just be the laptop. Lovely moment to have captured and I hope the proud parents are delighted with it.

Lovely capture and a perfect sentiment, not too keen on the ripple though. Prefer the image to be more simple.
