    Default Totally OT question about my kids ;)

    So you know the Yankee layout I was working on, where I said the photo was on the wall? I wanted to replace it so I took some of my kids yesterday. You can see in my siggy, actually. I posted a thread on the photography board, but haven't gotten the exact feedback I wanted. So I will ask you girls for it. Would you put this on your wall?

    Four kids


    I just wanted to see if it appealed to anyone other than me. DH doesn't appreciate the vantage point, and actually I will replace it when I am able to take a decent portrait of the four kids together outside. But for now, I want something like this. Be blunt, tell me if you think it doesn't belong in a frame on the wall.

    Here's the thread that has some of the others from that session if you want to see: http://www.pregnancy.org/bulletinboa...d.php?t=506791

    I would totally put it on my wall!! I think it's an awesome point of view. The photo looks a little grainy though - is that from resizing it? (it doesn't look like that in your siggy).

    how's this version look? I might have distorted the one above because I was forcing it to display a size that isn't one of my Flickr options.

    It makes me dizzy, and i don't like it that Andrew is upside down...My eye is being pulled in too many directions. I am not able to just look at the picture without my eye being pulled away the other way. .It's a very cute picture, but i don't think i would put it on the wall..

    If you like it, hang it up girl!!! I think it's a cool portrait and it's different. I agree w/ Liz that your eye gets pulled in different directions and that you don't get a clear shot of Andrew (like if he was just upright). You don't get a clear representation of each child's face besides Jack's b/c they are seen in anything but upright, so it confuses the eyes. KWIM?

    I'm not sure! At first I was all yes...but the last two posts got me thinking. It is a little hard on the eyes, although I think it is a totally cute and creative design. If it's just temporary then i say go for it. It's a totally adorable picture and we all know how hard it is to get a cute picture with more than one kid in it.

    I would never doubt what pic I liked to hang up and neither would my DH. It's our house and our pics....so I say if you like it then get the nails.

    I'd put it up! I think it's super cute. I see what pp are saying about it being a little difficult to see Andrew, but I would put it up anyway, especially if you are planning on taking another one when you get a chance. I have pics of my kids hanging that I don't LOVE, and am planning on taking outdoor shots soon!
