I am submitting this montage to a local photo contest today. Could use some critique/advice on what to improve on. I would appreciate it very much.....

Hi Teri,
This is absolutely lovely...what a beautiful child! If you really want suggestions to try...I think that I would blur or make the other images less distinct than the major focus image in the foreground and see how that looks. I am sure you have tried each one alone already...but some judges might think that it is too busy...with too much packed in one photo! There are so many things to try really...but I love it just the way it is...already a winner! #162602

Thankyou so much Gloria for your advice. It really is tough to decide what to do. I thought that a montage would be nice because maybe no one else will do one. I want to be different, to catch their attention, but I don`t want it to be too busy like you said. I am not expecting to win although there are several honorable mention awards that are really nice. I will play around some more and see what I come up with! Thanks again

I really like it Teri. I agree with Gloria, a soft blur might be nice on the other fairies making the large one your main focus. But if you leave it as it is, I think it's wonderful! I love the one that is looking away! You did a great job putting this together! Good luck to you! Let us know how it turns out! #738472

Thankyou so much Dale Ann. I appreciate your comments, I love your photos!I think I will try to maybe do another one and this time reduce the opacity of the other images. Do you think that would work? Because I merged all the photos it`s back to the drawing board! I will let ya know how I make out. Thanks again....*smile*

Thankyou very much Kay. I think she is a beauty as well but as her mom I am biased. I will certainly cherish this montage. Thanks again....
