    After my Mother-In-Law passed away, my wife and daughter got the same memorial tattoo. I tried to compose something different here in order to show off the ink and the "mother & daughter" bond. I am open for any c&c as this is something I want to frame and I am not sure if I should set up another shoot. Please, consider compostion, framing, exposure, and the like. Thanks in advance.

    Composition is not really good for what you're going for. I'd say tighter crop on the tattoos to show more of the detail. The daughter is slouched a bit.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I am going to try to edit this to "fix it", and I have another shot of them standing, but if you can look at this copy and tell me if the crop is better (leaving some imagination for the cropped out parts) I would greatly appreciate it.

    The biggest issue I find is that they are both slouched and there's not enough contrast.

    Thanks for the feedback. I see the consensus is their posture or lack thereof as the foremost problem with this picture. I will have to wait for my daughter to come over again when she gets a break from school in order to try to set up the shot again. I appreciate the time you all took to advise of "problem areas" that need to be addressed in order to get this one right. I can only do so much in PP and I think it's time to let this one go until a new capture can be arranged. Thanks again and I will revisit it once I address the posted issues. :guilty: :sad anim: :oops:
