Thank you Daniel and Mark, I appreciate your kind comments. So many views and so few votes/comments which is a shame as I'd love to know why this is getting no attention. I was quite pleased with the shot before uploading it to ephoto.

I think there is some rather wonderful about a pregnant woman...great capture, good lighting, nice pose and I like the studio style backdrop.

You are right about her glowing, she is looking must suit her.

Not long for you both to wait now.

Just beautiful....agree with above, there is a beauty about a pregnant woman, glowing and blooming....just wonderful. This superbly done, simple and effective.

As for the votes and comments, believe me, you don't wan to go there....its a real minefield of arguments and counter arguments that no-one seems to agree on.....but don't take it personally. There is some utter rubbish on here that gets LOADS of votes and comments and I can tell you this...its not for the photography. Yet, there are some seriously inventive, clever and plain old professional images ignored, go figure out that eh? Rubbish, I know....but this is lovely and it makes you happy, so thats the most important thing. Its a beauty....

Johnnyboy, I really appreciate your words and I'm glad I am not the only one who feels this way. I look at some truly wonderful uploads on this site and am staggered at how few votes they receive... yet I see some of the most ordinary photos with a crazy number of votes. I joined this site to learn from all the talented photographers on ephoto but I am so often left deflated and wonder if it is more of a popularity website at times. That said, something keeps me coming back to ephoto and I do still feel inspired so many!!

David, so beautifully taken. I like them both, perhaps the colour version just that little bit more - Jemma certainly is glowing and how lovely for the both of you to have these images as a wonderful reminder in years to come! Such an exciting time for you Smile

Have had a look at both versions and some of the previous comments. Sarah has taken the words right out of my mouth (or off my keypad - so to speak. Excellent photo, keep posting and enjoying the site, I find that whenever I come on here, which is often; I see a photograph that inspires me to keep coming back - today, yours is one of those photographs.

Well done.

Very clean image and beautifully representative of the situation.

One thing you could try is cropping quite closely on the left hand side so no background is showing there and it puts more emphasis on the mothers look towards her unborn baby. To make it work fully you may need to do something with the brighter patch at the bottom of the cloth, but it does give a slightly different dynamic to the image.

Thank you so much Sarah, Paul and csurry. The feedback I've had (since my little whinge!!) has been terrific. I really appreciate all the kind comments from you.
csurry, I think that is really good advice. I will certainly give that a go when I take more photos of Jemma in the coming weeks!
