My Baby's Blues

By Dizize
Managed to get hubby to sit still again for me Smile I have not altered this at all, except to deepen the saturation by one degree and place the box around it....liked how that looked...I look forward to your thoughts as well!

Many thanx to all who stopped by to see my submission from yesterday...I so appreciate all of your comments and critiques!

Until tomorrow,

What beautiful eyes - I can see how you fell for him! I would have just darkened the blue around his face on the left hand side - but that is only my opinion.

Love the composition.


PS - thank you for your kind comment.

Hi Dizize...this one is an interesting one.....I want to look at his eyes because that is the title, but because the focus is on the bridge of his nose that is where I look first....which is unusual because by general rule of thumb the first bit of a picture you look at is the brightest bit...
I love the tight crop, and the slight increase in sat...
wouldn't mind seeing you experiment with versions of this..

Really like this, a very intense stare. Have you tried converting it to mono and colour popping the eyes as a variation Smile

Good crop and color. Thanks for your comments on my Brotherly Love Photo

Great image. Maybe the eyes should be more in focus rather than the forehead though, as your emphasis is on the eyes.
