  1. Default Certification Images - Please Critique...

    Here goes - I'm going to submit these images in February - or at least that's my intention for now. Please take a look at

    Any critiques would be greatly appreciated. Is it likely these will pass the image submission test?

    Thanks.

    Stacey,
    I think you'll pass hands down, your images are great. But you might want to check the rules... I didn't think you were supposed to have borders or step mounts on your images.

    Default If that way ...

    Hi Stacey;

    I like your images a lot. To counter what Dan said ... if borders and step-mounts were done, for the clients, it's ok ... since you are to show images as you present them to clientelle. But if any of the images were not done that way you can't submit like that.

    Hi Stacey, welcome to the forum . Those images look nice, I agree with Dan and Craig.

    But... about the borders/step-mounts.... I though you were allowed to use borders to fill out the space from say, a panoramic print that the client had ordered as such (making it fit an 8x10, the required submission size). I did that for mine, but then again I kept the color/border very plain and simple (and only did that on 2 images).

    How do they determine that?

    Thanks for the critiques. I'm glad the border and mount situation has been brought up. I had been a little worried about it.

    Many of my senior clients purchase 8x8's in flush mount albums so I did do some adjusting of border size, edge effects, etc. on a few of the images in order to size them as 8x10's. After reading some of the replies I decided to call PPA; I spoke with David Mithofer Friday afternoon, explained my 8x8 situation and mentioned this post to him. He assured me that adjusting borders and edges to accomodate cropping to an 8x10 dimension would be OK.

    In each image explaination, you tell how it was treated for the client. Since the images are to be shown as delivered to the client, if a creative border, or step-mount, was used then it's part of the client's order.
