Daddy's hands

First time posting in photocritic :-)
INFO: Nikon D7100, Manual Mode, Spot metering, 50mm 1/200s f/1.8 Natural light.
Because it is dangerous to actually hold a baby like this I captured this little man lying on a bean bag on top of a black backdrop in daddy's hands. I merged 2 photos, 1 underexposed for the dark backdrop and the other exposed for the baby.

Kevin's given you a super crit and I agree with everything he said. If you're going to print this though, I will increase the contrast just a little bit.

This is a beautiful concept well executed. The exposure is good, but might have benefitted from a little more DoF but not to much. There was some shutter speed to allow a bump up to f/2 or f/2.8. The soft lighting is beautiful and I am a sucker for black and white, especially this well toned. The feet and hands are nicely detailed but the face is a little soft, but not distractingly so.

The composition really adds to the feel and the connection between father and child. Very well done there.

As for your logo, it is really nice but a little too distracting in this case. On the black, try and drop it down to a dark silver/grey so as not to draw too much attention. Better yet, leave it out and let your work speak for itself. :)

Great work and looking forward to seeing more!
