Hi guys,

As the title tells, I was trying to show the love and care of a mother to her child.

Please give me your C&C....thanks.

Yah, I agree, but I cannot remove it lah.....sorry, need to have the mark there, if not the subject will not allow me to post....:)
liddat ar...

anyway, the main distraction is the lamp behind... should change angle or move the lamp. ;p

prefer to see both legs of the baby. a close up on the baby experssion would be better. of course the story lead by the cake, but the tool is still the spoon. a 1/2 eaten cake would look better, esp facing the audience.

salvage tis pic, a tighter crop would be better.

I agree with you comment about the lamp and the BB's leg....I also find the cup handle on the left distracting too....Any advice on how to crop tighter? Dun 1 the cake?

Then maybe you shouldnt post this photo then...
Then again, doesnt seem to show the "loving" or "caring" much, I dont get the point.
the baby's position seem awkwark and uncomfortable, if u have gotten the shot of baby on mummy's lap, might be better.
the baby seem to be struggling to get rid of the spoon

Might work better if you have moved a little more to your left and zoom in closer

Thanks grumpy for your comments and will take note.:)

U really see in a way that the baby is trying to get rid of the spoon? But I see that the mum is trying to help the baby to send the food in to his mouth.:D Diff in thinking:bsmilie:

Just the way I see, both the mum's and baby's expressions are kinda awkward and tense; and the way both their hands clench the spoon... :think: to me, it does not seem like either of them are enjoying that moment.

Just my 2 cents ;)
