Default Smash Cake

My son just turned one last weekend, so I had to do the obligatory smash cake

++1 to being able to do this with my kids at this age.

Good job and keep snapping pics of them at this age... they don't complain as much and love the attention.

oh my LOL, nice job! only thing: the shots on the right seem a little closer together than on the left, gives the series a cramped feel down that end. and number 3 his head seems to have suddenly expanded in size... breaks continuity a little

but on the whole these are quite successful and hes obviously having a great time

Thanks for pointing that out... I knew about the enlarged head, that's because he started crawling towards the camera. I should try to resize it down a little to try to get it to fit better visually. Maybe I'll try to slide some of them to the left a little as well. Going to be putting this on a 10x30 canvas.

Thanks. The new version (with the 3rd image resized a bit smaller and some of them shifted over to the left a little, as suggested by somethingsimple) is on the truck to be delivered today on canvas
