I thought I would make a collage for each year so this is my first attempt. Please C&C. I am not really the creative type but there is a method to the madness. The orange and white are the gym colors so I created a gradient for the background layer and intentionally left patches to show it. I also tried to vary the size of the images so as not to get too monotonous. I took a few key pics and made them larger to put a bit of focus on them. Thoughts? Suggestions?

It looks fine...but in my opinion it's too busy. Nothing to focus on. Thats not to say your pictures aren't great. just my opinion

I agree that it is busy. When I was putting it together I was envisioning the girls looking all over it to find their pictures. Thanks for looking.

I think it looks good but here are a few suggestions since you asked.

I would probably have not left the gaps in the pictures to show the colored background but would have created a border around the pictures in this color.

You might also consider skewing some of the images so they are at angles instead of every edge being horizontal and vertical.

A section that lists the season results might also be helpful.

Again, I think what you have looks good, just throwing out some additional ideas.

Hope that helps.
