Well, 10 of you voted for the "Eye" focus: - 2nd photo posted
And 7 of you voted for the "Hand" 
focus: - 1st photo posted
In spite of the fact that some of the "Eye" votes are from some of 
the people whose opinions I respect the most, I'm going to have to go 
with the "Hand" focus.  I agree with Jeffery that the father seems 
more loving and is holding the baby more tenderly in the first one 
posted.  And I agree with Philippe that the composition is better 
that one, too.  The father's left eye is in focus in the first one so 
maybe that will satisfy all of those who voted for having eyes in focus. ;-)

I enjoyed reading everybody's reasons and you gave me lots to think 
about.  I can appreciate that this could be a generic photo of a 
loving father and his newborn without any caption; but, for my 
ulterior motives, I still think this photo needs a caption.  And that 
gets into my belief that you can use photography to make a difference 
in the world today.  Lots of good discussions on the lists lately!!
