    So i downgraded a month or so ago and gotten some manual lighting and umbrella for some shots.

    Does the white dreamy pale look work or not? (put in first pic without)

    Heres some of my attempts.
    All comments welcomed.

    Edit: Left two first photos unchanged for new people coming in.

    Not for me, I find it distracting. There's so much joy in his expression that there's no need to embellish it. Although you can clean up the photo a bit. E.g. cracks in the sink (#1 & #2), shampoo bottles (#4).

    Cheers

    No, I prefer the more natural looking shot with the "normal" colouring, the white draws the eye when he's the focus of the shots. I love the little "cabbage patch doll" face one, but I feel there's too much white tiling in it.

    He's a natural!

    Thanks for that guys, removed the vegnette and using original colours, did i push the brightness too much?

    Will have to check up some tutorials on how to use clone brush some time.

    Same here. It's too eye pleasing, unnatural. The duck in combination with the little son is so cute.
