Typepad Import Image

John Davis submitted this image taken with a Canon 40D at 1/50 sec, f/4.5, ISO 1000. This photo is a little underexposed and can be improved using curves still leaving that quiet moment feel to the image but revealing more detail in the baby’s beautiful face. The composition is very nice, taking this from an angle gives the baby’s face definition and creates a visual triangle for the viewer.  This would make a beautiful black and white photo.
