This is my first time considering print competition. I have three images I am considering and would like some input on them.... if either are good for competition and if so what to do to improve them. Help me out here!...

Hi Kathy
Can you post them larger? It would give people more to go by for critique. They look intriguing though!

Thank you. I posted them larger, I thought they should show larger than they are. I hope this helps.

I am not seeing them any larger. In order for them to show up larger you need to host them on Photobucket or something else. I would love to omment but it will probably be ater IUSA.

Hi Kathy;

They are very tiny so difficult to comment on. From what I can see:
#1 There is an awful glare from the groom's waist on down. The tilt hurts rather than helps.
#2 The couple is lost among the clutter. Tilt again ... why ?
#3 Low contrast and low saturation overall yet ... why are her eyes standing out like that ? There looks to be a bump on the top of the grooms head. Tilt again not helping.

I suggest re-posting much bigger.

Too many distractions. I look at the chandalier and reflections on the floor in the first shot. The second I see the movie screen, and windows on the left. In both, I had to really look for a subject. The third, I'm not to crazy about the black vignette. And as others have said, I'm not too keen on the tilt. On the first shot, I just keep imagining a ball rolling down hill across the floor :)
