What an absolutely stunning piece of work and a beautifully captured moment. For a photograph with a relatively simple concept you have managed to deliver a heart-warming and moving image.

:star::star::star::star::star: Vision: For me this photograph represents love, tenderness and the need to protect things we hold dear to us.

:star::star::star::star::star: Originality: While I have seen many photographs of parent and child, this is the first time I have seen one does as beautifully. It's a nice, fresh and original take on the tried-and-tested formula.

:star::star::star::star::star: Technique: Again as I have said a few times during this critique - Beautifully done! I really like the lighting and the level of contrast in the photograph and the vignette really helps to guide your eyes around the image. Whether intentional or not, the babies feet create a 'love heart' shape that really sets this piece off.

:star::star::star::star::star::star::star::star::star::star: Impact: Unfortunately DeviantArt only allow's a maximum of 5 stars, if I had the choice, I'd give it plenty of more stars than that. As I have said previously, this is a fantastic and stunning piece of work. You have managed to capture and beautiful and moving moment and one that I feel many will cherish for some time to come. Well done.
