1. In what area is critique to be sought?
Any area which can be better. especially the focal point.

2. What one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?
Perfect emotions.

3. Under what circumstance is the picture taken?
It was taken during my trip in japan (Nagoya Castle) temperature around 15-17celcius with canon 1000D kit lens (full auto). An old Japanese guy playing around with his iguana and he show it to this cute baby.

4. What the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture?
I think the moment is just perfect but i didn't zoom in more on the baby's face for better view.

Thanks to all CS members in advance ;)

Hi there.

Some suggestions...

1. Better to have the top cropped off. The background elements do not contribute to the image

2. Colours, saturation, tones and contrast can all be improved further in post-proceesing.

3. Sharpness on baby's face can also be slightly improved.

Cool.

Why not try a tighter crop plus a vignette to accentuate the main subject? I really like the baby's expression... personally, I would try to brighten his/her eyes and teeth for a more striking look.
