Default All mine

My youngest lad Jamie with some of his teddies.
2 versions and I can't make my mind up, which is the better of the 2, so help in choosing will be good.

Both are great images, my personal choice is No 1. Should be blown up large and hung on a wall.

Another vote for #1, Jon. I like the higher contrast in that shot. I wish the teddy on his tummy weren't so bright as to compete with his face, but it's a sweet shot nevertheless.

Well, I'll break the pattern here.. I like the second because for me the contrast just emphasizes a lot of busyness.. True, all those cute fuzzies add something, but I want the child to be the star and I find the busyness distracting. I would even be inclined to tone down the second and emphasize the child even more.

oh how great is this shot! #1 for me, i think it highlights his face more with the dark spots around the toys.

Both are very nice, I'll agree with most on #1 and blow that one up big and hang it for all to see.
