This is my neighbor Jim and his twins William and Sofia. I had very little time to work on the lighting, and it shows. Anyway, just wanted to thank DPC founders for the wonderful second home they gave to all of us. Cheers!

Critique Club - I think your concept for this photo was excellent. You have great exposure and good focus. I like the arrangement of the hands - a simple elegant composition. However, your lighting picked up a face, and lettering on someone's shirt. These extraneous things pull my eye away from the emphasis on the thumbs. I agree with the suggestion that some black material draped over the arms, faces, and shirts would have made this a cleaner composition. In photoshop, you could have done a layer of "Selective Color" and using the black as your selected color darkened out the background- which would probably have been cleaner than cloning it.

Cloning out the arm on the left side would make this picture even better in my opinion...That way all hands are missing arms. 9

Great shot, but that kid on the left's lightly glowing face is kind of spooky.

I can see the face and the letters on a t-shirt (?) It would have been better if you set up some black sheet to completely hide the background. 6.
