    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    I love the nice triangle formed by their faces. I know that you know...but that's a big key to successful group shots. Even the pose of their bodes forms a nice triangle that leads us to their faces...maybe that's more technical that it actually was...but it looks good.

    I might have tried to get them just a little closer, to close off that gap bewteen her head and his shoulder.

    I feels a bit too dark, but that serves to give contrast to the faces, which is a good thing. I might have burned the left side a bit to make the vignette feel a little more even & close....but I often go overboard with that :lol:

    The little one's skin tone looks a tad green...but I'm not on a calibrated system. Maybe the whole image could be warmed up a tiny bit.

    Well, now there's a good thought! I totally missed that.


    I'll give it a try.

    Actually... a tiny bit more. I did do a bit, but whimpped out on taking it further.

    Thanks, Mike, for such an insightful critique!
