    Default Ok ... here goes

    Hi Barbi

    On the bride's image ... I see beautiful lighting and gorgeous skin tones. Problems I see: The bride is positioned on the left side looking out of the image. Our eyes( and the judges eyes) enter from the left side. With her position, we see her right away. With that said, she is also positioned so her head is in between quadrants. I suggest moving the subject layer so her face is on the upper left 2nd quadrant. I would select a lighter skin tone and use that for an accent line around the subject layer. I would bring out more detail in her gown too.

    Default Child ...

    Hi Barbi;

    On the child image, she is positioned pretty well on the 4th quadrant. The area around her is very busy and distracting. I'd like to see you blur around her so she is not lost in it all.

    Thanks for the feedback Craig.

    The bride was originally facing the other way but I got several suggestions to flip her. By flipping her I had to remove her wedding ring because it was on the wrong hand after the flip. So you think it would be stronger to have her looking back the other way? I'm struggling with the crop too. It doesn't feel...right...but the other crops I;ve tried didn't work well either.

    Hopefully this will post her larger. Thanks Cassandra for telling me how to do that.

    Default No on flip

    [QUOTE=Barbi_Barnum;193474]Thanks for the feedback Craig.

    Hi Barbi;

    No, I would NOT flip it back. I meant that it would have been better if she was more in the left side when you created it. She should be looking left.

    It looks like my explaination bhow to post bigger worked now ... congratulations !

    ok...so you weren't talking about the image....you were talking about how the image is positioned on the mount?

    Default Hope this explains it ...

    Hi Barbi;

    This can be for a full bleed image without making a step-mount. I quicky made a crude diagram. I showed the 4 quadrants. I also added a stick figure which is looking to the left and positioned on the 3rd quadrant.

    Ok...I understand what you are talking about....the rule of thirds. Actually when you brought this up I pulled her back into LR to double check my placement. The intersection of those lines happens on the apex of her cheekbone. I would prefer it to happen on her eye or even better yet on that inside edge of her eye but to do that makes a very awkward negative space.
