Gotta love brand new, squishy babies! I'm looking at this on my work laptop, so I may be wrong, but the color seems a bit off to me. I'm curious to see what the others think. #1470148

Too cute for words and an excellent compostion Sue. I like the semi-high key look but agree with Jeff on the color, which I believe is simply a matter of lowering the saturation by about 10% to 15%. #10189936

Oh my gosh! So cute!! I think it's cute that the hat is covering her eyes. I'm not really seeing the color problem, but my monitor is not calibrated. I am wondering if you did some skin smoothing, because the cheeks and nose are a bit too smooth. :) #10190680

Sue - she is darling but I, too, am seeing the color and toning that down a bit would be the thing to do. The "pose" is great. #10190741

I sure like the little ones hand position, the beanie covering the eyes and the white blanket. I'm seeing the color and a skin softened appearance. #10191223

A wonderful composition and I too love the hat covering the eyes! :~) I'm not bothered by either the smoothness of the skin or the color. It does not look natural, but I kinda like it. I'll be curious to see if simply reducing the saturation works. I'm seeing a blue/lavander hue over it and would think that doing a white balance would work better. I've been wrong before though! lol #10192430

Very sweet little baby shot! I like how pink it is, but it will be nice to see an edit. #10195455

Wicked cute Sue...I agree with the color issue and also with the softness in places . I'd be interested to see the original to see what the skin looked like before you applied the softening.. #10195731

Oh come on guys! Babies are meant to be pink! I am just in awe of a 10hr old that isn't all wrinkly and squished looking.
Well done Sue. #10202718

10 hours old! Wow!! Such a cutie, I love the pose, she seems a bit pink but hey she is a girl! #10205132

Genius on the beanie covering her eyes...to me it tells a story that she's not yet quite ready to take in the big bright world around her...Yes babies are pink...and precious...and I wish I had a dozen to care for! Can't wait to share my new grandbaby with the group! One proud Nana here!
Once again...that beanie over the eyes tells me she wants a little more quiet time before the world with it's bright lights and loud noises intrude on her 9 months of peaceful, dim haven inside her mummy's tummy! #10218468
