Hy everybody this is my 2 months old niece Channah. She's the daughter of my brother Dries-Martijn and Chantal.
Alex is holding her.

Impressed by you when I first saw you,
Impressed by those little eyes and hands,
Impressed by your impressive expression,
Impressed you seem to be....

I hope you like it. Let me know what you think!

Greetings Simone

Nice, but crop it above the watch please :-)

Dat stuk hardware hoort niet in zo'n zachte context.

I agree with fotobram about the watch. It's annoying the softness and tenderness of the photo.

Ben het eens met fotobram. Het horloge is storend in de zachtheid en tederheid van deze prachtige opname. Hoop dat je t ook ziet !

groetjes, willie

He Simone,

Foto is heel mooi!
Hij is heel lief en teder (de foto dan he).
Ik vind het horloge eigenlijk niet zo storend. Zorgt er juist voor dat je de hele foto bekijkt. Misschien beter zonder... maar storend...?

Groetjes Alex

Hi Simone,

I don't mind the watch at all in the photo. It just shows that someone can wear tough looking watches, clothes, etc... and still be tender and caring. She is adorable. I wouldn't change a thing about the photo.


Ciao Simone

Beautiful shot,
of great affection and care of the father!
A visually beautiful and very good taste,
you made good use of BW.
Beautiful ..


Hoi Moon,
Een prachtige en tedere plaat, mooi van contrast en licht. Je hebt hier Alex met de kleine prachtig vastgelegd! Probeer een volgende keer wel scherp te stellen op de ogen (van de baby :-)

Hi Simone..great shot of two very sweet looking people.


Olá, Simone!

Great shot. Channah is cute :o)
Good choice for B&W tones.
Congratulations, friend.


Little angel...

Hey die Simone,

Ja zeg, in je intro zeg je leerzame commentaar te willen ontvangen, maar bij dit soort foto's valt weinig leerzaams meer op te merken. Compliment dus voor compositie, belichting, de b/w presentatie, balans in de plaat, de notitie, etc.
Nou, iets heel pietluttigs dan: het lichte vlak linksboven leidt een beetje af. :-)

Hi Simon. Affectioned an poweful. A song to the life.
