Sonia, amazing image. Great memory photo with fantastic processing. Great Work. Best Regards

Linda Davidson
This is so cute Sonia. What an adorable baby. I really like the asymmetrical balance of your subject on one side and the bubbles on the other. I have two small suggestions. There is a tiny bit of bubble that was almost cropped out on the lower left side, I'd clone or airbrush that out. The other thing, and this could just be me, but it looks like the tub is floating. Maybe it is supposed to look like this. But, if not, I think it should be anchored somehow. Other than that, I think you have a promising future as a baby photographer. This one and the other one with the baby in the suitcase are fantastic. All the best.

Hello Sonia Being a project; I think, you could play by light, lightening from one side could contribute to depth and composition; and the bubbles could be more located..Too much light here.. A little contrast may help.. Well, it is a good capture.. congrats.. OB

Thank you all so much for your very encouraging comments and helpful suggestions. Linda and Ozgur I take your thoughtful consideration to heart and I think your suggestions are very valuable.

Dear Colleagues I want to repeat Sonia 's question: " how i can improve." this picture.. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Isn't that mean "can this picture be better than this"? In other words, what can I do to make it better?.. Almost all of you think that it went to farthest end and there is nothing that can be done.. Of course, it is a good picture.. I know almost all of you better than me.. Dear colleagues, I do not want to think that you are hiding your valuable suggestions.. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Dear Sonia Take these words as a comment.. Being only one doing suggestion, I felt that I have to make an explanation that I am not criticizing the picture negatively.. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Best Regards to everyone.............. OB

Luis Miro
It's a wonderful work Sonia! I agree with Linda and (for me) perhaps the most relevant is that it looks like the tub is floating... and even I think that depending on the destination or the purpose of the image that could be good...or don't. Warm regards, Luis

Great work, Sonia. Love the bubbles and the choice of buckets. :-) Cheers!

Sonia Mason
Thank you all so much. I'm sorry it has taken me so long to return to thank you. This spring has been busy. I will be sure to give the parents a choice of whether the bucket is floating or on solid ground. The original bucket had a big Corona symbol on it that I had to remove. Thank you all again for your kind, encouraging and helpful comments
