A really nice family shot of two very happy kids. Only one comment - get in a bit closer to concentrate on those faces and cut ot t settee back.
very cute shot indeed, i too think that a crop of the right side of the image to remove those unwanted part will give a better result,
as photography is a light painting, i should say that the light is very much flat, you have to be careful with this, you may have used a flash, if possible try to use off camera flash with a different angle, so that your image can have a more dramatic effect,
there are many creative angles for lighting, for portrait photography, i can name a few like light from the up or from below, may be from a side, you can arrange these lights with an off camera flash(better) or even with table lamps,
you need to enhance the contrast a bit according to me,
wish you best of luck...
Hello, Jeannette. A charming happy portrait of the children. You have their interest, eye contact and eye catchlights, which is good. My only niggle is with the composition. I feel that if you had tilted your camera downwards a touch, you could have included the feet as well. Alternatively, a closer shot of just the faces and tops of the bodies would have been good. Also, there are distractions in the right background. I have done a modification where I cropped so that it's only the couch that fills the background. I also adjusted levels a touch. My second modification shows a nice bit of framing which I think suits the picture, with some text as well.
Hi Jeannette. A lovely smile from these two that's often difficult to capture together! I agree about the cropping (or go in closer), it would make the image stronger.
I've had another look - agree a little more contrast, but still quite like your original given the crop.
For me, leave out the frames and definately the text. I believe you should never present such things actually on the image - later in a scrapbook or frame if you wish.
