Hey Everyone,
I just finished a great shoot and here is the collage that I put together. I feel really good about the photo session, but what do you guys think of the collage. Please be honest, and thanks so much!

Good Job! The only thing I can see right off that I might do differently is the backround- not sure Iike the legs and rearends being visible. What about cropping just a sction of the flowering bush and using that as the background. Just my opinon. Overall it is very nice.

Excellent collage. I do agree with pdrow, though - perhaps cropping a picture of the bush or even going out and getting something like it would improve this. Very visually appealing - I'm sure they'll love it regardless.

Looks a bit busy. Try using less pictures.

Looks great, nice job. I agree about the background.
Also the bottom three pictures stopped me for a bit, I found myself checking back and forth to find the differences... I think if you change out the bottom middle picture for one with a different composition than the two next to it, it will flow better... just a thought.
Nice job...

Thanks for the feedback guys. I made the adjustment to the background and I changed out one of the images on the bottom, because I forgot that I had that one. Let me know what you think.

Nice work.

But I too think it's a bit busy and too much overlapping on the left middle part.
and IMO the top right picture doesn't really fit because it's too large with too much background (green), the other pictures are tighter. In my eyes it's a bit unbalanced because of that. The top left picture is just limit but could be tighter.
Why is the middle bottom picture sepia while all the other pictures are color?

Hope you don't mind the (constructive) critics...

Ikinaa,
I don't mind at all what you are saying and thanks so much for being honest with me. The reason that I have so many pictures is because this was a large family and I want to bring as many pictures in as possible. You need to remember that the smallest size that this will be printed is a 16x20, so it will be a large print. The reason that the picture in the bottom middle is colored the way that it is is because I wanted to bring some attention to it and to make it timeless. I still have the color version which I could through in. Thanks agian for everyones help.
