    Well with some bribery and several cookies, my 2 year old daughter humored me with some potential shots for this years Christmas Card. I kind of like this one b/c it looks like she's being sneaky and mischievious. Not crazy about the landscape crop but it seems like most of the sites have a landscape layout. Thoughts?

    Maybe clean up her face just a little because it looks like she was eating some of those cookies.

    I really like her expression...it's cute.

    Well, she was eating some of them and had a little chocolate chip shmutz on her lip. I thought about cloning it out, but haven't gotten to it yet.

    Thanks for taking the time to comment.

    I don't know, I like the cookie crud on her face. I think it adds to the whole "I got caught eating Santa's cookies" look. Nice shot...nice expression.

    Here's the same pic w/ a portrait crop which I prefer if I decide to try and design my own. I digitally cleaned her face a touch.

    Yeah, I cloned it from the cropped side. Thought it was missing something and seemed unbalanced, then added a shadow in PS.

    Thanks

    Yes, the 2nd picture is much better. I dont like the stocking being directly over her head. But definitely good enough to send out as a christmas card.

    good job
