How about this pose Santa

Dale Hardin 12/9/2011 4:42:22 PM

Sue, this is delightful and fun. Great pose and it evokes a smile at once. Love it.

would suggest a reduction in the highlights though, as well as a small bit of sharpening.

A keeper for sure and wonderful for a Christmas card. #1428980

In addition to Dale's suggestion, I'd also warm it up a bit. Otherwise, looks good! #9856545

I'm smiling too Sue and just wondering what 'speech bubble' I would put on this expression. Do I have to apologise for thinking 'naughty but nice'! #9858038

LOL... this is just great Sue... sums up the season #9858134

Thank you all for your comments...there was one thing in this photograph I was looking for when I posted it and no body mentioned it so I will just say I "passed" :) yipppy. Dale when you are saying "as well as a small bit of sharpeing" are you saying to sharpen it or reduce the sharpening. #9858352

what a fun shot, Sue. I agreen it sums up the season for sure. for me the only thing that could have made this better was a different tilt of the face. great capture #9859046

Add sharpening Sue, perhaps with the high pass filter. #9859200

I like the pose and also her expression. I look forward to the edits. #9860151

A really unique shot, Sue. I don't think I'd change much. But try Dale's high pass. The conversation about the "speech" bubble got me to thinking about an ornament that someone got at my sorority's Christmas exchange this past weekend...on it was the inscription, "Dear Santa...define "nice". #9861811
