a winner image ! This is much more than "just" a baby pic. The detail on the little girl is marvellous.

Hi Adrian,
how are you?
I like this one, and I think it would work very well in landscape format as well.

great image, babys expression is great, not too sure about the lower background behind mum though.

Just a gorgeous baby. Really irresistible with all that spiky hair. How did you do the B&W by the way? (debbie hardy's suggestion worked well for me but interested how others achieve it)

Hi Sus, I used an action supplied by Mattmatic (ePz member). He has some good stuff here Mattmatics tutorials . The action I used is This One (see bottom of page for download) and used '1b' only.

This is great! There are many things I like here: (1) well cropped parent at the bottom with only her face showing, (2) eye contact between the two is captivating, (3) side profiles - very dramatic, and (4) bit obvious this one, but B&W keeps this image simple and effective.

This reminds me of when my friend David lifted his baby brother over his head....with disastrous results... Hope this wasn't the case here. What have you used as a background coz I'm not sure it works around the mum's head/face.
