Very very nice Vidau, I like this alot.

What lighting did you use for the baby? To me it looks like one Softbox to the baby's left.

Thank you very much dka91.

To the baby's left is a window, natural light......to the baby's right is a softbox off, without flash.

Thanks again. Regards.

No problem, thanks for the reply! The natural lighting is really nice Ive got to set up a background and try it.

I have to say that the light comes from a window covered with translucent white fabric.

Yes it is natural light coming from a window covered with translucent white fabric.

Thank you very much for your opinion.

One of the better portraits I've seen on here!  Love the lighting, composition, and pose.

I hope you don't mind me messing with your image, if you need me to I will remove it, but a curves adjustment, some lightening of the eyes makes for a much more compelling picture I think. Cute kid either way!

It´s okay, I appreciate your interest.

I thought about doing the same but I preferred not overexpose the side of the ear.
