    I think you're on to something! How about put the butterfly up higher; I don't think I like it over the hands.

    Threads merged - no need to start the same thread twice, it only clutters the forums, ok?

    I think the butterfly would have been a much greater idea if it was b/w and smaller. That way you could have made some more butterflies, and made it look like a part of the picture. The way it is now, makes it look like it's misplaced, and at first glance it looks like he has some kind of extremely customized guitar.

    One more thing.. It should be more squared if you are to use it on an album cover.

    Squaring the photo is not a problem, it also has to be a bit smaller for the CD, the butterfly is the problem, by demand, it can't be dominant, so I cant make it part of the pic like a background, but it has to be a statement, I have tried placing the butterfly different areas, but I cant find a perfect place for it...the shot of the artist had already been selected, so I can use a different pic now, any more suggestions?? This has to be turned in Monday...thanks in advance...Im sweating here..:blushing:

    I think it would look better if the butterfly was transparent.

    I think you should consider re-shooting this and lighting it differently. Get the flash off camera if you must use flash. Try natural light. Go outside on an overcast day. Have the subject engage the camera. He looks depressed.
