    So my wife and I wanted to do some different Christmas cards, so I thought I would use my cuban treefrog as a subject. My wife and I are at a bit of a stand still because we both like different images. So I came here in the hopes you guys could help me out and help us make the decision.
    So please tell me which photo you like best.

    Photo A:

    The reflections in the ornaments are distracting.

    I would like to change my vote #2 but I can see the reflection of the lights and all
    I was thinking just take a picture of the Christmast balls in a lightbox and then overlay them into the picture in photoshop to get rid of the relection just my thought

    Good pictures overall very creative

    I agree with the reflections as well, I didn't do much for retouch yet, simply because I only want to spend the time on one image, rather than all 5. Keep the votes coming!!

    I like "B" the best out of all of them. I may get stoned for this, but I like the reflections-- or at least the idea of them. It's your card your taking the picture for so it makes sense to me that your reflection might show up. But then again I find the reflections more interesting than distracting.

    ^ That's all well and good, if the image was about the reflections, specificaly about reflections of the photographer and equipment. But it's not.

    You are finding them interesting, which is distracting you from the subject. The focus. The intent.
