    OK, be kind, I'm old, 48, and took a couple of pics on a trail yesterday for a hiking book. I'm a squinter. I can take more, but which one of these two do you like the best? If you think they both suck I can redo somewhere else.

    Number 2. Better of the two. Less squinting, better color/contrast..better 'finger pointing in distance'...icon_cool.gif

    But..get someone else to take the pic for you!

    Yeah, yesterday wasn't exactly a good no-bag-under-eyes day. It happens.

    FU! Bitch. icon_wink.gif No, fair-skinned people often squint. Our eyes are more sensitive. I can obviously PSP it if need be. But, yes, I have been totally tired lately.

    OK, these pics suck. It's amazing what you settle for when you are old and tired. Who wants to be my torso?

    You look pretty much the same in both, but the second is better because you can actually see your finger pointing.

    I thought it was one of those 'spot the difference' competitions. I circled 10 before I realised.

    your eyes are conflicting with your hand pointing to the forest. U have to choose whether you want the attention more on you or the location your pointing at. You can either tilt your head towards that spot and your eyes also following the same line not looking at the camera or just rest hand on the wood railing and keep your eyes looking at the camera if you want the attention more on you.

    This is a lot of thought for a 2" x 3" pic in the corner of one page of a 120-page photo book. I say you come take it and then sleep with me.

    I like the expression on your face in pic 1 better but I like that it is easy to see you are pointing in pic 2. Sorry, this probably isn't much help. Maybe you could photoshop your head from pic 1 to pic 2? icon_wink.gif

    I honestly think you should have a friend take some pics for you. Outdoors is great-- the location is spot-on. But you can work with some better angles... maybe some late afternoon lighting... and get a really nice shot.

    Pic 1....you look friendlier here

    Pic 2 seems rather 'forced' and you seem annoyed

    However if you need your finger to point at something I'd suggest you take another pic!

    2. But if you are going to retake them, dont where anything with letters. The eye is trained to go where type is. If you dont wear lettering, the focus will be on you. where it should be.icon_biggrin.gif

    Pic 1 -- You look friendlier

    But. . .

    Pic 2 -- Your eyes look a little more open
