Great shot, but I agree with Taff - the border is distracting.

Great image. I do think the strong border does take your eye away from the beautiful picture of your baby. JIM

Damn Brit

Yes you did good, very colourful and nice composition.
The frame is overpowering and gimmicky though.

Your baby is so cute! To make the pic even cuter, though, I would give the baby the toy that's lying in the background to play with, and maybe shoot from a closer distance, so that the background is more blurred... Or, take the baby on your knees, left knee higher than the right, so it's like a "chair", hold her back with your left hands, and shoot with the right one... It's just an idea, though, remembered how I tried to feed my little sister this summer, and I thought maybe you could shoot that way
