Award-winning Press Association photographer Lewis Whyld tweeted:
Lets be honest the new Royal baby photos are not very good, you know, photographically. If you're ill see a doctor, not a mate. Expertise.
@adamblenford yes, the light is terrible. The memory is captured but it's just not very beautiful. A shame and a missed opportunity.
Whyld has been behind some of the most viewed images on the ITV News website, including lightning behind the London Eye, Ed Miliband's egging and a 360-degree photo of the royal baby's first public outing.
