Re: Christmas snapshots from a newbie

The first shot was supposed to be water-color looking - kind of like the investment commercials.  It was never intended to be realistic.  I was trying to create almost a caricature while retaining the thoughtful look on his face.  Probably should have said that up front.  I have not purchased the Topaz plug-ins - just using the 30-day trial to figure some things out.

The picture of the little girl was just one of a series captured in a 15 shot burst as she rolled over and got up off the floor.  Definitely would not have cut off the fingers on purpose but as the title says it was just a snapshot - had no idea I had captured any usable frames from that burst until I looked at them the next day.

Thank you for the input - I probably should have given a little more background on the images before asking for critiques.

Maybe I should have put this in the retouching forum ?
