    It's a shot that I took because I'd not take any photo's of her. We'd gone to a restaurant for family dinner on Boxing Day (26th December) so was a bit of a manic surroundings. 16 of us, two 4 year olds who were still excited over Santa and a lot of fawning over the new addition (I think she was about 5 weeks old at this point).

    I liked it in a "could've been better" type of way. However when I got a print of it and the family saw it they're all smitten with it. Needless to say the praise has miraculously increased my liking of it :biggrin:

    Funny how something that you can be very much on the fence about can light up someone else's eyes.

    Thanks for looking

    The hectic surroundings are the best time to take shots of the kids. I always crawl around or squat to get to their level in those situations.

    Cute kid though

    I'd usually agree. I've got some great pics from previous Christmas's when they were running around playing with proper toys, but nowadays (where's my flat cap and walking stick...) the are invariably hidden behind the screen of a DS or similar so you don't get much fun shooting them.

    We were there for about 3 hours and this was probably the only one I got of one of them not looking down lol
