I think I like it better with the woman cropped out. She stands out just a bit too much.

Works better with just the kids.

The previous placement of the artwork in the composition was good (to my eye), but you've lost a bit of that balance in the crop. I'd crop a bit from the right edge to move the round artwork to the right in the final frame.


Cheers, Damien

Yes, perhaps a bit more than cropping, I think it s worth preserving a 2x3 format:

3rd one is the best. I could see this being used as an ad.

The last crop is the best one for the reasons stated before.

I like the interest this brings. What do the kids think about it? Are they thinking about jumping into the middle !!

crop or clone out the bigger kid. he looks awkward. try cloning first, that way you can keep that negative space. plus it tells a better story with just 1 lonely little boy staring into it

I like the first image best, the woman helps the composition, you could have three people ranging from strong interest, mild interest and dis-interest, the scale of the image works better I think, as you crop the colored circle starts to dominate

the shadows seem to become more problematic when only the two boys are pictured,

Definitely better without the woman (post #7 is the best imho). I might try cloning out the sign that the larger boy is looking at. The lettering looks like a smudge on the wall and is distracting.


Constructive criticism is always appreciated.
