    I am thinking of using this kid as a sort of "logo" to advertise myself. But I almost think people will just assume it is the gerber baby.

    much better. I'd like to see the eyes a bit sharper, but it's a very clean shot.

    Are you advertising yourself to take pictures of babies?

    Only slightly reminiscent of the Gerber baby. I think you're OK.

    On my uncalibrated monitor he looks a little orange, but I could be wrong. As it looks on my monitor I would want to pink it up a bit.

    the hair in the shot you took and the gerber baby are identical.

    It looks like you took and image that cast a bad shadow on the camera right and you took the original and made 2 copies of it for three layers. And went into the top mostlayer and went and did a replace color for the background to be all white and then added a layer mask and masked the baby off so that he was not affect by the replace color command. and when you used the brush to mask off, the left shoulder, chin, ear, neck got messed up by a crappy quick mask job. You can also see where you stopped right at the top of the head, cause from teh top to the right ear is a bit messed up. You need to use a big brush that is nice and soft to do this well. A brush that is amost too big but can still do the job will work best.

    I use this technique from blowing backbrounds completely white, like you did
