I think the concept was good, but the execution...hmmm... It appears that they aren't really twins, that you've portrait oriented and layered a flipped version of the landscape original photo. This, for me, made the position of the babies very strained and unnatural. I think if you have the opportunity, to have this concept in mind and pose the baby so that when they are flipped, it looks more natural. I would also change the lighting in my flipped dupe layer, so that the babies aren't so mirror perfect (no twin is). Now having said all this - it is just my opinion!! This concept has the potential to be a great shot. Another thing - I may be crazy and this actually IS a photo of real live twins, and not one baby and some Photoshop! LOL!! Either way, please take the comment not as insult, but as it was intended - as helpful constructive advice! #3330744

Thanks Ellen for the nice comment.
Sipho E. No, you are not crazy. This is not an image of live real twins!!!
I've just visited your gallery, and couldn't beleive you fall for this to be real, LOL!!, as you've done a lot of photoshop.
I took the shot of this two week old baby girl a year ago and was playing with in PS once again, and thought to flip the image over. I did and liked it. I did enter it under the "digital dark room" category.
I appreciate constructive advice. No hurt feelings. By the way, your gallery is wonderful. #3331565
