The day my baby was born. This is my happiest day. To play it safe, I shot this image in program mode at 600 ISO. I had only one shot to get this and did not want to play around with the settings.

    beautiful. just a suggestion- a bit more light might be nice.

    if you are talking about the corners, I added a vignette to protect the doctors and to tone down the background a bit. What do you suggest cause I will try anything.

    yes a magical moment, when my first child was born, digital was not an option, still with two cameras, i captured 72 photos in the first 90 seconds of her life. congrats on your childs birth, and the great photo.

    What an awesome photo and perfect for the theme!!!! When my kids were born neither husbands or cameras were allowed in the delivery room. I like your vignette and especially how it protected the doctors identity and it helped to focus just on the baby.
