    Photos with wording look like they are for product placement and ads. If that is what you are going for they look great, otherwise take the words off as they ruin perfectly good pictures.

    maybe you could move the text away from the centre, and make it smart and modern, so you can still see the picture, and you have a little bit of wording to enhance that

    Agree completely. the pictures are great and the wording distracts from them tremendously. Number 2 is a little too centered for my tastes, but it's still a good picture.

    If you're simply trying to enhance the pictures, then unfortunately you did the exact opposite. The words take away from the shots. However, if these are for a specific project/assignment and the words are needed then I guess they're fine.

    IF the words are a must, I like numbers 2 and 3. I'm not a huge fan of selective coloring, but it fits #3 perfectly and was well done. The words on #1 are too intrusive.

    Thanks for your input! I also sale uppercase living which is vinyl lettering. A lot of customers like the sayings from ul on the pictures so I offer both with and without. If it's on there they don't purchase ul and then some like to purchase the ul to put around the photos. Just a little history of why I do it.

    i find the first one all you really see is the wording, it is hard to see the image underneath, the other ones I don't mind.

    IMO the wording should be part of the composed image. It should balance the overall image.

    #1 - The "f" is poking him in the head. The words are the brightest thing on the image and it's so intrusive I didn't even see the boy.

    #2 - The words look too cramped. It tips the balance of the image, especially since the girl is already slightly leaning to the left. It's left-heavy.

    ummm, also the line is crossing the word "cute", as if to subliminally say "not cute" ...I'd fix that!

    #3 - I kinda like it :mrgreen:
