    If this was your kid would you like this ? Trying to boost sales a little and thinking this may work.

    Thoughts ?

    It works well for me Rod, I especially like the lack for front teeth. He is "all" boy!

    Excellent. Perhaps some drop shadows on the inset photos?
  4. I would buy it if it were my kid.
  5. I agree with the drop shadows comment and perhaps add the year in somewhere.
    Very nice though, should be a winner.

    Whoops - Sorry Geoff...We were posting at the same time. Yea- I may add some shadows to the first one.

  10. My posts just take more time to travel around the world!!!!!!!!:biggrin::biggrin:
  11. Rod,
    great job! I prefer the first one. you will sell them like candy. I personally sell a few hundred a year. Although no two are ever really the same, there is a basic formula that i follow: 1. I shoot my main image first ( most important) and it consist of a head/shoulder shot. MUST BE TACK SHARP 2. the background must be clean with great bokeh. 3. Never crowd the canvas.

    Now here is the reality of the thing... we on this forum look at images, poster and collages for technical value.....BUT THE PARENT ONLY SEE THEIR KID ...AND THEY LOVE IT!! Isn't that great?

    just finished this one

    Man I guess we were just too uncool back when I was in little league cuz we didn't wear shades :biggrin:.

    I like the concept. I'm betting parents would buy 'em up like crazy? What would something like that sell for?

    Yea the shades made me laugh. . Too bad though being able to see the eyes would have been better.

    I have not settled on a price as of yet.

    Thanks Rolly - you are so correct about the parents just seeing the kid. And that's what makes it great.
