Hi Jackie,

I'll start off by saying "Oh! What an image!" I truly like this a whole lot. I think with the right presentation it would be even better. But let's wait an see what the experts with the real knowledge say about it. They had better say good things. Very, very nicely done!

Hi Jackie,
I like it alot, but I feel that the extra long legs on the pedestal are not helping you out. I think a tighter composition would work the best. Eliminate the base and top of mirror. Have fun. Call me if you need to explain further.

okay, here's another one, closer crop, different expression. It's not detailed yet, is this expression better, and is the crop?

LOL, guess the baby didn't want to get cropped :D

Try cropping it Horizontal and place the child to the left.

I really like this one. Is the crop in camera what we see or do you have more room on the left where the baby's ear is cropped a little too tight, imo.

Hmmm,Mark. I am leaving that to the experts, I just am clueless on cropping, no matter what guides I have, it seems.

Jackie - I really like the BW too bad there is not more room around it in the orginal file. I cropped to remove the rest of the ear distraction. I would like this printed on watercolor and then surface mount it to bring it up to size ( my printer will only print to 13" wide by what ever...). If you are printing on traditional paper I would use the grey mat version. We talked about the bowl image so you know my thoughts on it. I believe this is the same baby, if so you could not enter both in the same competition.

I am definitely not an expert, but I think the image posted in post #6 is stunning! Her eyes look beautiful and I find myself wanting to stare closer into them to see what is in the reflection! :)

I think the fact that I am the President of the Jackie Haggerty Fan Club disqualifies me from commenting. Sorry. Katie! Coffee!!

How do you get a competition print ready so quick? My lab likes a one-month lead time...but I did get 2 in two weeks....

But I love the one with the baby crying. That has impact, for sure!

Jackie the girl kneeling - why show the chair and her legs? this has been burned too much and detracts, I would crop 1/2 length keepin all hair, crop just above the arms of the chair and above her head to place her eyes on the third line from the top.

Baby in the bowl, I would crop the top half of the mirror off, keep the peg the dress hangs on plus just a little bit more. otherwise I like the cropping. As it is the babys face too close to the middle of the image. The towels are burn too much as well. I almost feel a burn to the bottom half of the image as well though not too obvious.

I like it much better, I think you could still crop a bit more off the top though. Postition the image in the upper R instead of the Lower R. This will place his head in aprox the thirds

Jackie dodge the highlights along the bottom of the bowl just to bring out the detail slightly. It appears to be going to black in the lower R and you want to hold some detail there as well. It may be there on final print but I can't tell the stand leg etc. on my monitor. Other wise I like it. Do you have a title??

Jackie, Titles from Holly Baby- This always happens when I eat beans for dinner. Girl in chair - Victoria

Title on baby is a bit long but I like it. We will keep thinking.
On girl in chair the blooms are just a bit bright yet. Keith
