another stab at judo boy - new one post 10

sorry for creating a new thread, but I think I'm getting closer on having something for Logan's last judo belt test and I'd TRULY appreciate some feedback.

What do you guys think?

any/all c&c, suggestions, etc. greatly appreciated!

Best,

Love everything about it. The bw conversions on the side look great.

Only thing that is bothering me is the little white spot under his nose. I know it's part of the background photo but maybe try just making that spot black and it won't stick out as much?

oh, I like the main picture here! but the big picture behind it is hard for me to identify with. Mainly because we don't see faces. I do like the sense of it though. And the strip looks great!

I agree with Stacy about the white spot under his nose.

I know that big pic is missing faces, but it's such a classic judo moment (pinning your opponent) that I went ahead w/ it. I have another of the boys bowing to the instructor, but you can't see faces in that one either, so I dunno.

I agree about that white spot. I made the big cut out a bit bigger and burned the spot behind them. I like this better.

I'm getting closer to the one I will print and hang in DS's room.

Yep, I am really liking this one. The conversions look great and I always love how you put together your collages.

WAAAAy better! I like your second edit here! The background photo is good too, even without faces.

I like this one a lot! The only little thing I keep noticing is that the boy's hair that is behind Logan's head makes it look like Logan has a little ponytail LOL.

OK. I did another. I think this is turning into an obesssion.

Thoughts? I think I'm still leaning to the one just before this (post #5). I'll let Logan choose in the end which one ends up in his room, but I'm thinking about printing one for DH's office as well.

Anyway ... here's the latest:

What do you guys think?

I'm not sure I'm digging the 'ghost images'.

TIA!
