Apart from cropping a little off the left-hand side of the image, the child looks beautiful and the exposure on the material looks perfect from here.

perhaps we should start a 'Retouching Not Needed' Forum? (:-)

Cheers, Tony.

Gerber baby.
In reply to Gerrard, May 2, 2012

An initial attempt anyway. Was thinking Knoefel, but the result looks more Gerber (but not illustrative enough) so I reserve the right to do some additional tweaks later.

Ah thanks Tom Although I do like the overall look to your edit I personally find it a touch too soft especially around the Eyes + eyebrows which I find should be the sharpest feature in any Portrait, but I certainly appreciate your time + effort so Thank You.
Cheers
