Default How not to do it

Let's see now, I think I broke the rule about reverse decapitation here. There are natural spots to gracefully cut off part of a body. Just below the chin is not one of them.

Then there's the rule about paying attention to what's in the background so a tree doesn't grow out of the subject's head.

We're always trying to show each other our best work, but I thought, what the heck? Why not start off the new year with some good, old-fashioned honesty: boy, can I ever take some really awful photos!

But it was the moment that counted

Yeah, sure, but it's still a lousy photo. :mrgreen:

Hey, Barbara

I concur with OhHenry...

Please celebrate the moment...and the smile on your son's face.

Think of it as an opportunity to hone those CS tools

Exposure is very good, even the light show up nicely. To me it does NOT look like a tree is growing out of his head, he is just in front of the tree. It may not be considered a professional photo, but it is a very good picture.

I guess I'll have to search around for an even worse photo so that, no matter how hard you folks try, you just won't be able to find a single nice thing to say. 8)
