How I spent my weekend ...

Taking pics ... two babies ... two different days .... only one set processed though.  Here's a peak.


Okay, so here's a question.  The photo above was critiqued on a website I visit and I was told to crop in on the left to remove the black edge, so that the eye is drawn more to the baby.  I am liking the black edge myself.  Thoughts anyone?

That is a sad Christmas baby. Bwahahaha I hardly notice the black edge. It's the spit bubbles I can't get past. Photoshop them!

If I were photo editing these for a book, I'd crop the black edge for sure. I'd leave the spit bubbles only if the photo were running full page, because that would be charming. Otherwise, at this size, they translate more as food . . . So, I'm with Buzz. Buzz 'em! But leave the sheen on the lips.

Keep the edge.

I didn't notice the black edge and now that I do, I like it. It balances the black in the pillow and I like it with the pink/white.

Thanks for the comments everyone. I had several elsewhere who love the bubbles. Maybe I will do a version with and one without; and also one with the black edge and one without. Once I get this second batch of babypics processed. Thanks for the input, this is how I learn!
