I lurk here a lot, usually hang out at GP but I love coming here to look at all your wonderful photos. I am not in your class of photography but I love taking pictures. These are two collages I put together from pictures I have taken of my dad.......some better than others but I work with what I have. Which do you think would be the best one to print out, frame and give as a gift to my mom and brother. Or do you think I should print both and give one to mom and one to brother?

I think both are very nice.

However, I like the second one since it has the large picture in the center, but I would make the large picture in the middle, the one close-up of his face instead of the large hands, and make the hands a smaller outside pic.

That's just my opinion, though and as I said, they are both nice, and I don't think you could go wrong with either.

#2 catches my eye.

I'd go with 2 too.

One other thought, try some of those shots in the black and white mode or sepia mode in your photo editor. They often impart more of the person's "character" somehow.

Thank you all for your comments. I actually ended up doing yet another one using some old black and white photos. Thank you rcnalyor, I got the idea from you. But I am still not sure, I just want this to be something special I can give to my brother and for my mom. Since they are both in a nursing home there are not many gifts I can give them.
I really would like everyone's opinion, but I do not want to impose on your forum.

Linda,

You are not imposing, it is what this forum is for. Post all you want.

I think your family will like any of the collages you make. It's a gift from the heart!

Good day,

Ditto on what Z_Joe said. The thought is in your idea and the photos, not so much in how they are arranged.

Z_Joe, early morning bike ride?
