Hello little one

By Serkta  
Hi, hopefully this is a better mono conversion than my last attempts (sorry if anyone voted or did mods, I couldn't bear to look at them as I had ruined perfectly good photos with my post processing)

Anyway, a good friend has just had a baby and asked if I would take some shots. They specifically want Black & White so would really appreciate and comments on the finished shot. Her hands were cold so looked a different colour to the rest of her!

Many thanks for looking. Cheers, Raife

this is beautiful, the baby looks very peaceful and very new.
I think the shot would look even better with a small rotation anti-clockwise so that the baby's head is not lower than her feet.

Thank you for the suggestion. It's funny how you can get so fixed on one aspect or another of a shot and miss something that someone else sees immediately. I love this site. Cheers

Its a nicely exposed shot, and a good b&w conversion.

Sometimes when you have such a dark background, the subject can appear to be floating, - which can seem odd to some people.

I agree with the feet/head, - and I would also crop it so the baby is more aligned in a third.
To try to make it look less like the baby is floating, Ive added a slight reflection in my od.


Regards

A lovely image Raife and I agree with the above suggestions. Not sure what you could do with the appearance of floating though, possibly leave a hint of the background in the shot?
