Joe Messenger is the winner of this week's SunShots series "Hands" for a photo of his infant niece. Joe took the photo with a Canon EOS 5D Mark II using a cloth backdrop hung on a window for the soft back light and an on-camera flash pointed at the ceiling for fill light. Here is a critique by Baltimore Sun photo editor Jerry Jackson: "This is a beautiful way to make a family portrait with a newborn. The sepia toning helps unify the subjects and emphasizes the different skin textures."
