Congratulations Hartanto!

Seems to me like the very first cry...... Very emotional portrait indeed . Soft focus is working well here . I like the unique POV and presentation too.
Well thought .

Very nice POV you have here. Lovely framing. It's like the sounds it comming out of the pic. Great DOF.
Just perfect.

Well ... to be honest, it's not the most beautiful baby photo I've seen.

But it is very touching, and real, and evocative. And outstanding work on your part!

Great photo with an exceptional use of DOF. Very well presented in this frame. Title is spot on as well. Well done!



Cool composition, Hartanto! I like it! I like the DOF and focus. The text and border design is bold and artistic.

Captive shot, I like how this image is so natural, the raw emotions of a baby.

oh my god, this is going into my favorites. WHAT A GREAT SHOT!!!!

The moment is just amazing, great idea to keep this one in color. I would put this on a front page of any family magazine!


Very original. Love the focus on it. Very unique POV.

Baby is gonna be a model :)

It is a very interesting perspective that you shot. I find this angle unusual, yet very pleasing.

This will be a priceless photo in your collection.

Congratulations on baby Alexander. Hope you are getting some rest!!!
