What gorgeous eyes! I am certainly not an expert so this is just my personal opinion - I love the sharp focus, especially on the eyelashes, and the nose on the second one, but I am detracted a bit by the skin tone which is a little blue. I wonder if the skin tone was less blue then the eyes would stand out even more? What a great subject to practice on though!
well.. I must say i reeaaalllly love it.
I've never made any baby-pictures myself, but this stimulates me to do it!
i like the first one the best, tho only one eye is sharp. i think 2 sharp eyes would be better, but. i don't know what camera you have and what possibilities it has.
(me myself, am actually a camera-newbie)
one tip about the composition:
when photographing people, try to get a clear space at the spot their looking to.
in this case it should be left.. cuase it gives you some more depth, and you're wondering where the kid is looking towards.
you did that better in the second shot.
I read this here in the blog, although i cant find the article anymore...
maybe anybody else knows?
also, with a little color balance in photoshop you can make the skin less-blue to make the eyes stand out, but i dont know if you have the program.
nonetheless, as I said, I totally love the picture.
BTW: is it ok if i manipulate your photograph to show you what i mean?

I'm in love with Photography.
oh, and Photoshop too.

Im gonna comment on the first pic first, you should move the face more to the right to give more black background and give balance to the picture, that way you can also move the eye to the "third" of the composition.
As for the second pic, I love it, its balanced and the color of the blue is just nice, I like the effect of the reflection too.
Thats my opinion, keep shooting and have fun!
I can't believe the difference that makes! I will have to get onto learning photoshop asap. For anyone who is interested these were actually taken on my front verandah late in the afternoon and he was laying on a dark brown sheepskin, the camera was set on portrait/macro.
Thanks for your comments.
