    Default Need some quick checks...

    I'm ordering my prints today and could use a quick check (and any last minute suggestions) on these images.

    Jessica,
    On the pink one have you tried cropping out a lot of her dress on the right? It would move her over a bit into a more dynamic spot, and take away the uneeded dress. On the Boy with the Skate Board. I would look at cropping out most of his pants. keep the waist line maybe. Not sure, but I think it will be more dynamic.

    Hi Jessica,
    I think i like them both better that way. You might even want to come a little higher on the boy so that you dont cut into a sensitive area. The problem is I can see someone saying that the clothing doesnt match the key, and the print contrast is too much. I am not saying it would happen for sure. You will have to really gauge what you prefer.

    On the girl in the pink dress. To me it is stronger keeping all the image on my right and crop in on the left almost to her elbow. Try keeping more area above her as well. I have included a mock up of what I am trying to describe but envision it with out all the transform distortion.
    On the scate boarder, I would also try cropping off the pants need to take a look to see for sure.
