    I usually only take the ones with sharp eyes out of the lot.. if the shot didn't have sharp eyes, goes in the trash.

    edit: unless there's another subject, but if the subject was supposed to be her, with that thin of a DOF if the eyes aren't sharp it's no good..

    skin tones are way too red

    Try shifting the red channel to get a more natural / yellow skin tone

    here's what I suggest for post processing:

    much warmer and even skin tones. I like this look on babies.

    cute kid, btw.

    I think there's a little too much red/magenta in the shots, but that's an easy fix. Otherwise, great shots!

    THanks! Yeah I agree, the walls in the bathroom are friggin PINK tile, that's why everything has a magenta feel to it.. the edit looks a little green for my tastes.. I was trying to maintain a warmth but not make other things look awkward..

    it's not easy to make perfect ;)

    meh, that's how the lighting was in there, I'm not going to make her look jaundiced just to make the whites more white rather than pink.. I don't think most people will care :hsd:

    if I could get it right I would, but I cant get it skin-toney enough for my liking.. it's either jaundiced looking, or green looking.. hard to get a happy medium.

    skin looks better for sure, I think the best thing to do would be to do a layer mask and just change the skin, leave the hair and background..

    let me guess, you have some kind of color management software on your computer that's making life harder than it needs to be, instead of helping you make better pictures?

    I think you need to ease up on the sharpening.
