    baby composite

    I did my first baby shoot, and while no one single picture really stood out to me as being a winner, I decided to make a composite of a bunch of shots, and am very pleased with it. It is sized for an 11x14 print. I plan to frame it in a white 16x20 frame (or maybe smaller) with pink matting. Think that might look good? How does the print itself look?

    You should be pleased... nice results.

    May I suggest something other than the black? With everything else keyed on the lighter side, I don't think the black is doing anything good. Maybe a "prettier" font too... something more delicate.

    Nice job.

    Good points. I tried a variety of fonts in photoshop, but nothing was really soft and fuzzy like I was looking for. I will try a different color for the background. Any suggestions? Maybe a darker shade of pink? I didnt want to over do the pastels. Thanks.

    Can I be completely honest, I like it, except for the picture of the eye. I think it really takes away from the overall loook. When I looked at the collage, it was the first photo I saw, and I kept going back to it, and I really don't think it should be the focus of the collage. Also with having it and the close up of the toes/fingers (sorry, I can't remember what they were) in the same corner, it sort of seems to weigh down in that corner. Just some observations, other than that I think it's quite beautiful and you captured some great moments.

    I agree with the comment regarding the eye and the toes together in the bottom left, it does seem to weigh the picture down in that corner. I was wondering how it would look with the eye, say, in the top left corner and the toes in the bottom right corner. They seem like they need to be away from each other.

    All in all, I'd say it is a very pretty collage and captures some cute moments of the babe
    The camera is about "wanting to know". Photography is more then technique. It requires an internal lens.Insight doesnt happen often on the click of the moment, like a lucky snapshot, but comes in its own time and more slowly and from nowhere but within.There is outer light and inner light....
    A photographer needs both.

    Part of the problem with the eye shot might be due to the black border. If you like it there, keep it while you try other border colors to lighten it. fwiw, it's not bothering me at all - I like the whole thing!

    You've caught some very sweet expressions here. And the lower right image shows her as such a little bundle of joy, it just makes me want to pick her up for a cuddle!

    My favorite is the one you have centered. As far as matting goes, I always mat my images with white. I just personally think that colored mattes take away from the image. There is already so much pink in these that I think having a pink matte matte would really be overdone.

    I'd go with white too for the frame/border/BG...it suits the mood of the images.
    Also agree with the comments on the eye shot...I think maybe it is just too disembodied and close. I'd consider removing it altogehter. As for the other images I think they all work well together and are some sweet shots.
    Keep at it.

    Re submit

    I did the changes you all recomended and I must say it does look much better. I accidentally deleted the old one so we cant do a side by side, but you may remember the black background, block lettering, and the awefull "eye" shot. Is this one better???
