    Great bunch of photos, really outstanding works.

    This is my daughter. Yes I broke lots of rules, high noon, shadows etc. But this is about the only portrait that I have taken this month that I like.

    Baby S here. I purposefully set the soft focus to balance the harder shadowing I wanted - Did I do ok on the eyes?

    You caught the baby's expression perfectly along with a highlight in each of the eyes. What I don't see is a separation between the pupil and the colour area of the eye so he/she must have dark eyes. The shadow at the left hand side also portrudes into the eye area slightly which is not ideal. I would lighten the left white area of that eye in post.

    The challenge is to determine what to keep sharp and what to soften. I am not sure that I would take the same approach as you, but on the other hand, I do not see a perfect approach either.

    And before anyone else: AWWWWWW, What a cutie!

    No banding whatsoever on my monitor, so it must be your laptop.
