This is a pic of my 2 month old baby girl. Do any of you see anything that needs improving?

I'm just learning myself, so I don't have any cc. Just want to say that she's adorable!

She is beautiful!!

It's nice how you have the focus only on her face and the background blurred out. You may want to increase your depth of field to get some more of her hair detail but that's being nit picky. The main thing that is distracting to me is all of the catch lights in her eyes. There should be just one. But like I said, that's being nit picky. :)

Thank you ladies!! :)

photofashionista- I agree about the catch lights, I dont know why there are so many, in pics I have of her close up like this one, there seems to always be more than one.

She's ADORABLE!

I love a really shallow DOF,I don't mind that her hair edges are out of focus.
Did you use a flash? It looks flashy to me and that would account for the pinlights.

Thank you!!
and yes I used the flash, I didn't think of the flash being the reason for all the catch lights. I think your right, thank you!! :)

Yes, less distracting. It draws you right in to her expression. :)
