My newest project - need opinions (XP)

This is XP on the photography board, but I really want your thoughts here. I haven't tagged anything today. Lol But it's not like I could scrapbook either - both activities take place in the same room, and I couldn't do either while either Jack or Natalie were awake, and I haven't had ANY time with them both sleeping ...

Anyhow, really would love your thoughts on these photos - you'll look at them differently than the photo board girls, and I want your opinions too. Wink

Yes, I'm ignoring my kids again ... Jack had shots today so he's napping quite well (I'm glad it's a napping shot day not a fussy shot day - the last two were the latter)

I went back to the pictures of Natalie that I took when I was shooting Jack and his doll for the last COTW. I really want to make a storyboard of her. I've been playing with these for a couple of hours. I don't have the SOOC on Flickr (actually, I might have one of them). I just want to know how these colors look. For the b&w, I followed a tutorial for doing a chocolate conversion.

Any and all C&C on the colors is appreciated. Thanks!!!!

Here's the SOOC version, but it was resized as I had almost hit my Flickr quota

I know nothing about photography but she is just gorgeous. My fave is the one you chose for your siggy. I like the color version of it better for some reason.

I like the last one best, but I also like the color version better - although I prefer the crop of that one in the B&W. The one in your siggy is sooooo adorable, I can't wait to see how you scrapbook these! lol

As for critiquing from a 'photography' standpoint, I don't see anything wrong with any of them!

I love the first one I can see a sb page with the word wonder large and in cursive next to the pic. I also love the one in you siggy but I love the bandw one. She would look so cute in that same position with a huge tutu on!

I missed this earlier but your chocolate conversions are spot-on! Wow, makes me want to learn to do that. Love how her eyes look bright and it mutes out all the busy-ness around her in the one with the stuffed animals.

I'm working on the storyboard with the b&w right now, will post when I'm done. Smile

Charys - here's where I found out how to do the conversion - in the middle of this discussion, there's instructions from Rita and those are the ones I followed. http://www.flickr.com/groups/naturallightchild/discuss/72157613031890145/
