I really like this picture of my daughter and the plan was to print it on 24X36 canvas. I have been playing around with colors and PP and came up with this final version. However, since it is costly to print big canvas I wanted to get second opinion and feedback on the postprocessing and the shot itself before I send to print. Thank you in advance for looking and comments. It's greatly appreciated.

This is a very nice image of your daughter, and I'm sure you'd be happy with a big print. Honestly, before I'd print this, I might take a look at other processing, especially black and white. Maybe it's just me (and since you asked), but I think a sepia finish doesn't work as well with infants as something more natural in tone, either in color or black and white. I think you'll find it a bit dated also, as the years go by. Again, that's just my two cents. If you're competent with Photoshop, I might also suggest lightening up the eyes just a bit (not much, just to give a bit of sparkle).

I agree with Steve on both the color processing and the eyes. Give the eyes some punch and this will work well. Personally, I'm not so sure about a closeup like this going 24x36, but that's just me. I would definitely do it 20x30, though.
