    Hi Brian! Thanks for sharing another image with SLRL Premium Critique. I think the light and composition is great for this image; the only thing I notice at first is the fact that the key light is coming from our left, but the subject’s gaze is towards the right. It does look like there were two possible key light sources, though; was one of them flash? Anyways having the subject look towards the light is usually great whenever a subject is looking slightly off-camera, but it’s not always easy to get a baby to look in an exact direction, especially into a light, haha. Other than that, I think it’s a great shot overall, and the composition, though simple, is of course a good clean one.

    I would say that the grey, rippled background might look nicer if it had a faint color, something that compliments babies’ skin tones. Not sure.
