Parker

By dawnmichelle    
Thanks for the support on Jason's images...
I am enjoying experimenting with layers and backgrounds...
Hope you like this one as well.
I didn't take the pic of Parker.. I borrowed it for the digital bg to make a pic for his parents.
The baby is now several months old..

Hope your having a wonderful weekend

Keep each other in your thoughts and prayers

I really like the concept with this image and with a grandson expected any day now, I've been provided with some wonderful food for thought. I would make the following observations, which are designed purely to help.

With the lower portion of the image, it's not clear what the hard lines relate to.

Regarding lighting, the baby is lit from top right, whereas the scales are lit from bottom left. The way the baby is lit would also cast a shadow on the face of the scales, but the top left of the scale face is blown. Also the lighting on the basket is too flat, i.e. it's been illuminated head on with flash. The bear has been lit with a much softer light and would cast a shadow on the scales.

We can see the ellipse of the basket top edge, so we're looking down on the scene and therefore the perspective of the scales should be altered to match. The key element for me is that the scales needle does not reflect the weight of the baby.

The idea here is so good and with a few tweaks the whole image would blend together so much better.

I hope this helps.

Thank you Nick.. All great points... the baby's pic was took by his family and I took the image off of their site which made it a really small scale image to work with and enlarged it to res. of 300 but it was a bit pix.. so I adjusted the tones etc the best that I could .. which I thought considering the way I received it came out well... I do really like the suggestions you have made and will take note and see about working on the next image with the ideas you suggested... I appreciate your help !!! have a blessed day !!
