I have to select one of these two pictures. The first one would be my favourite if it wasn't for that half tongue out. The second one is a bit less sharp and the framing is a bit too tight in my opinion (on the other hands it has got better smiles). Which one would you choose?


What is the purpose of the pictures? That tongue could be an indearing quality for that person, so the fact that it's there is not necessarily bad, but it depends what the picture is for. The framing is probably too tight on both of them. It's usually a good idea to leave yourself some extra space to work with in post. Especially if the image may have multiple uses. I think the first one is better despite the weaknesses, but then I'm the type of person who doesn't make efforts to hide flaws. Flaws show character and are generally a good thing, in my opinion. I don't ever erase freckles or wrinkles, for example. I would get rid of an abnoxious zit, but I don't think I'd put that in the same category as the tongue.

Thanks, it is just my album from Indonesia, dont need to sell anything. I like yout approach. I go as far as national geographic would go with post production. Dont even have photoshop, just LR.
