Ok, so I took some more pictures today and tried to get the light in both his eyes. I had some troubles with figuring out the right shutter speed, but I still can't seem to catch the brown quality of his eyes! Anyways, the contest starts tomorrow, so please let me know what one I should use! Thanks

I think it should be a full colour edit, with clean processing. Sorry Laura! I don't like the desaturated look at all, it looks ghostly and corpse like, not a nice feeling for babies. Sorry!!! :)

For Easter, spring, lots of bright colours would be nicer!

Are these your SOOC shots? Would you like to post the original, and we can try to play with it?
Also, did you shoot jpeg or RAW? You'll have a much better chance of getting a better edit if you shoot in RAW.

I like the setup and he looks SO cute! Did you take these with a flash? He has little pinlights in his eyes - if it's not the flash then you might have him too far away from the window. Try having him right up near it with you just infront of him :) Hope that helps and good luck!!!

I agree, right up to the window will make for nice lights! :)

Also, maybe put him off center a bit. So he's not just squared up right in the middle of the picture.

Ya, he probably is to far away from the window, he's on the other side of the room, LOL! I tried to not just centre him but like I said before, I am just using the wall and that wall had a plug in a few feet over!

Blue, these are the orginials. I have no clue what SOOC means! And I have no clue if they are jpeg or RAW!! Soo much to learn!!

You guys are more than welcomed to play with any of them. I am going to submit a picture later tonight! DH said he really likes the other two over these ones.. :?

SOOC = straight out of the camera.
I'll play when the kids go to bed (another 1.5 hours)

Here is a quick play, to lighten it up some. He still looks yellowish to me, but it's kind of hard to edit a jpeg image when I'm so used to RAW, sorry!

Thanks guys! I think I might invest in a sheet so I can put him right in front of the window!
