A picture of my best friend's son very early on in the season. Although I must admit, I can't remember what lens I used with this picture - probably 70-200. I had a little trouble with my layer mask in CS3 but managed to get some great help from a great friend here at NIKONCAFE...thanks John! C&C's welcome - does this work?

I have to agree with Dave here. Just two of him as a collage here just looks confusing. The one picture of him on the right is really great. I would just crop that one a little tighter and put his name and info underneath on the left.

Unless you want to get crazy and do what I tried with my nephew last year. He loved this one.

Well, **I** like the extra guy in there...maybe because I had something to do with it...

But I can see the confusion...

I did a little test of Mitch's suggestion (tighter crop and move the text), and it looks really good...

Seneca, give it a test...I think you'll like it. It doesn't have that "WOW, how did you put two pictures in the same picture" feeling, but it does have a nice balance. I would maybe show both to the parents and see which one they buy...never hurts to have options...LOL...

I do like it.
I think you did a great job.
Others could work as well with more than 2 pics.

Seneca, perhaps if you included the second photo as a tip in, like this:

Hmmm..I dunno..Picture in Picture? All it really amounts to is setting off the inset photo with a Stroked edge and then a drop shadow.

Great shot. I love shooting baseball. I think it would look better without the inset. I was looking at it trying to figure out what the shortstop was doing - on first glance.... either way. All (most) baseball shots are great, becuase ... they are baseball shots!

Yeah I thought was going to be the problem...looking like the short-stop was in the way of the pitcher.

I took a swing at it (no pun intended) because I'm really, really bored.
