The compostition and the idea is good~ Lighting wise, seems a bit too bright for my eyes. This is subjective i guess. As for the focus, i personally feel maybe using a smaller aperture will be better. Cos the idea is to bring out the bond between father and child right? The focusing on the father's hand is important then~ Just my 2 cents~ :)

i think it is great as it is - softness and high key entirely effective! wont nitpick, if at all.

if this is a newbie shot, then u go very very far. :)

composition...its best taken the moment just before the hands grab yours...

overall...i would prefer the dad hand in the holding position...

I do like it.

Maybe a little nitpick, but perhaps a cleaner background?

Thx dreamerz

I think its good idea to lighten up dad's hands and clean up the background. :)

I wonder if a soft focus will provide a more dreamy effect here? The way that only the baby's hand is in focus looks kinda weird. IMO.

Is pretty good, if you think you're a newbie then you have a good eye and good previsualisation, nitpicking: wish there was slightly more DOF, but that's not really that important, a shallow DOF can work here as well. Just personal preference.
