Taken as a favor to a family member, on a cloudy day with snow lingering on the ground. I was looking to see how much the blown out snow in the background affected the photo. To my eye, it is not too bad here, and I could easily remedy this photo with two scans merged into one. However there are similar photos to this one where hair and other elements are present that cannot be as easily separated from the white background. So I either have to live with the bright white snow, or try to separate the hair from the background and make it look natural. Just looking for opinion on that topic, and any other input. Thanks

Hi Evan, I think this is wonderful tenderness captured in this photo. I like very much the way that you composed the shot - the eye is drawn to the mother's soft caress on her child's foot. You tell a story here - seasons and time; a new baby coming and life turning in a new direction. Lovely.
