    Great photo. A women most of the time has that motherly instinct where men go into fatherhood not really knowing whats to do. Most of the time not all the time. Great concept. This photo says a lot.

    Very poor taste,you do not hold a baby like
    that, and on top of that show his genitals.
    You would be surprise of how many perverts
    are out there that would surely enjoy looking
    at the innocent naked kid.

    I haven't expected so much attention. So thanx indeed! Mike Tindle understood correctly the idea :). And talking about people who do'nt understand and are angry about this picture - well, I understand them too...

    nice concept!

  • Thelma Blizzard

    Thelma Blizzard gave props (29 Jun 2009):

    The photo guidelines state: "JPG is okay with artful nudes, but we do not allow photos where the genitalia region is visible or photos that are explicitly pornographic. (That's "or"... we know the two aren't synonymous.) As a general guideline — no penises, no vaginas, and nothing in that immediate vicinity — period." I'm so glad to see rules being broken around here, because I just love this photo! :)

    I find it funny that the ones who think this photo is disturbing are also the ones who post poorly composed snapshots of flowers or their kids from their point and shoots. Thus, Clearly distinguishing those who shoot photography as a hobby and those who shoot as an artform. It's ok to not understand this photo, just say so instead of criticizing it on it's moral value. There are worse things out there.

    Very nicely done... Artistic and well thought out! No porn here people... wake up! I get out of this image....emotion...new father seeing his son as a new responsibility and hanging on tight! Good job!

    This innocent baby boy is clinching his fists as tightly as he can because he is STARTLED. No one should frighten a baby or child to this extent. I don't care about his nudity......it YOU I'm wondering about. Perhaps you should take some parenting classes. This is no way to handle a tiny infant. I hope you do learn how to care for this innocent child before you do real harm to him. Art be damned.....I'm not concerned with "is it art or not." I'm very concerned for the overall welfare of this tiny person.

    Patty Gross (Deleted) said (29 Jun 2011):

    P.S. I worked in the medical field for over 20 years, and I do know this is NOT how you ever handle an infant!!

    Patty, you're repeating yourself. And that's make me believe that you are worked in a medical field over 20 year.
