Even though daddy is big, baby Huey has the strength to raise him above his head.

Thanks to SCervino and Grunow at SXC for use of their wonderful stock! (5 years and 2741 days ago)

That is really cool, however, I wish the baby were in the same focus as the rest of the picture. Everything has a nice Gaussian blur to it and that baby is just crystal clear. Evening out the tones and sharpness of the three main items would really add to the painterly quality of it. Nice job overall though for sure!

thanks elinoree! for the bg part i was attempting to create a bit of depth by having distant objects less in focus... and the baby is in focus becase it is the main object, as is the dad, jsut the dad is swaying slightly in the air which is why he is less in focus... guess if i have to explain it i didn't do a good enough job showing it ;] Thanks for your thoughtful input!

The idea is good, I really like it, but execution needs some improvements. Looks like you're hiding some mistakes on the layer of the father by blurring. You can say it because of the DOF, it's alright, but I can't imagine the father is not in the same plane with the child (because the his shadow is as sharp as the shadow of his kid). Moreover, the right hand of the father needs to be recovered, looks like he loses fingers. Just my opinion, don't take it offensive. Good luck, author

author says:

no i was not covering up any mistakes... all blur added was simply for effect... i think i can stand to blur the father's shadow a bit more... thanks for your comments!!! ;]

I think a better source image would have eliminated a lot of your problems to begin with.
