I am not that great on photoshop but am slowly learning.
I took a picture of my son and thought it needed something extra so added some butterfly wings (couldn't help myself!)
What do you think? Yay or nay?

Nay!
Wrong expression, nothing else (clothing) speaks of butterfly. He's not engaged, try a B&W conversion without butterfly intervention. Might look though provoking.

Technically I think you did a great job. It looks like he's wearing the wings. The lighting is pretty good.

I agree with others, however, that the boy's expression and shirt do not fit the theme. Plus, a girl might enjoy having butterfly wings more than a boy.


Thank you. bw!

Just to add my 2 cents, Nay. The wings don't fit with the rest of the picture. Sorry!
