Hi,

I'm planning on entering one image at our local print competition. I have been trying to mat it so that the focal point is in a ROT spot. I'm worried though that in trying to achieve this, I am making too extreme of a matting job. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

So is it better to get exact ROTs even if the matting looks strange? or better to err in the other direction? or of course, there is always the "don't bother"

Thanks

proposed title: "How You Doing?"

After reading the topic on impact in images, I started wondering about this image. It has a lot of impact to me, but I'm guessing it's too full of technical flaws to even consider.

I love the baby's face in the first one- cute cute

The second one was difficult to figure out what the subject was.

There is a lot going on this week, so if the seasoned critiquers don't get in here, that is why.
